ONE FOR ALL / Siblings
These pairs of siblings are different in many ways – but what unites them is a free-wheeling approach to their style. Here, they share their similarities, differences and their new-season highlights.
Andres and Rhiannon Barry, founders and creative directors of vintage fashion movement Wavey Garms
‘Andres is more chilled out than me,’ says Rhiannon. ‘He’s very chilled and I’m the organised one. Though our creativity makes us similar. We love the same clothes and music, and share the same ideas. Mostly, we are both obsessed with the same things like the 1990s/2000s era. He would say I annoy him by ordering loads of Ubers from the Wavey Garms account. But, for me, eating while on the phone to me and saying “mmhmm,” makes my blood boil.’ In shot, from left: Andres wears windbreaker by Balenciaga; sneakers by Prada; and bag by Coach. Rhiannon wears Boots by Gucci.
Noel and Samuel Aiwerioghene, founders and creative directors of fashion label Akins Collective
‘When it comes to our general approach to design and style, we are so similar. We base our clothing on classical elements and combine them with something new. For us, it has always been about the balance between mixing what we see today with inspiration from the 1960s. Also, we are very inspired by uniforms, such as military uniforms. Every day we wear our own designed trousers, which will be one of the first things we will release soon. We can’t live without them!’ In shot: Noel and Samuel wears sneakers, both by Ami Alexandre Mattiussi.
