A designer has joined forces with Rag ’n’ Bone man to create clothing tributes to rock royalty.

The Sussex-born musician has often been noted for his alternative sense of style.

This was illustrated at his wedding in Lewes earlier this year when he wore a camouflage tracksuit for the ceremony.

The 34-year-old said: “I’ve never had a stylist and don’t intend on having one.

“I reckon a lot of people feel pressured into dressing a certain way to ‘look the part’ but I don’t really care as long as I’m comfortable.”

Now a new long coat created by fashion designer Gresham Blake, who is based in Bond Street, Brighton, features Rag ’n’ Bone Man’s customised tartan.

There is also has artwork by Slaves guitarist Laurie Vincent in the lining of the jacket.

The coat is part of a collection which has been made to mark the opening of the Hard Rock Hotel in London.

Gresham Blake said: “The collection exhibits a lot of rock idols shown through the printed linings, T-shirts, pocket squares and scarves and we have designed British woven cloths specific for Hard Rock Hotel.”

He said that the full collection of ten outfits plus accessories “encapsulates quintessential British style with an anti-establishment edge”.

Most pieces include an exclusive print designed by Gresham.

Ian Fletcher, general manager of the new Hard Rock Hotel London, said: “Music is in our blood and as this is the first time the Hard Rock brand has launched a hotel in the UK, it was important that British style and London’s musical heritage shone through on every detail of the hotel including our staff uniforms.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests, offering them a Hard Rock London experience as soon as they walk through our doors.”

The 900-room Hard Rock Hotel London, near Marble Arch, will pay tribute to the city’s musical history, featuring carefully curated music memorabilia displays of items from a host of

musicians from all over the world.

Laurie Vincent said he had been a fan of the Hard Rock brand from childhood.

He said: “I didn’t want to sit and eat, I just wanted to wander around and stare in wonder at all the music memorabilia.”

Hard Rock Hotel London has two bars as well as a Hard Rock Cafe – the second to open in London.
