The Brand About
It started in Rio, Ipanema Beach, a place full of fun, sex, colour and freedom. A city alive from dawn till' dusk.
Independent Leaders, The Arts has recently emerged as a strand of the brand representing a collective of young energetic artists determined to bring superb design manifested out of such processes as illustration, graphic art, digital media, and photography.
Two friends from London would take the sites, sounds and flavours from Rio back home and go on to create a lifestyle brand completely different from anything they had ever seen before. But most importantly they would adopt the independent spirit of the people they had met who lived passionately, freely and confidently beyond the rules of society.
Independent Leaders aims to champion and nurture original design talent from around the world by working with up and coming artists, as well as collaborating with more established designers.
Independent leaders was born and through fashion, music and the arts aims to inspire a movement of creatives who live life free from control.
The current collection of work available from Independent Leaders, is produced by six artists and is available worldwide through the online store. The collection consists of a variation of Brazilian inspired pieces, which have been duplicated as giclee prints, each limited to an exclusive one hundred editions. Each is produced with an astonishing amount of detail, sequentially numbered upon sale and signed by the artist. The original, one off, artworks can also be purchased directly from the online gallery. As new artists join the collective, exhibitions will pop up around the country showcasing the talent introduced by the brand. Independent Leaders intends that the brand will evolve to represent a truly exciting and diverse community of artists and designers, working within a wide range of artistic processes. By utilising the comprehensive talent of painters, illustrators, typographic and digital artists from within the collective, Independent-Leaders plan to demonstrate that exciting and unique works of art can sit beautifully alongside the fashion, music and photography strands of the brand to furthur enforce the brand ethos.
