Known for its cutting edge approach to style and design, a trademark Blood Brothers is known for. Which leads to delving into their Autumn Winter 2016 collection title Enlightenment. The collection is based on the inspiration of the industrial revolution in the 17th and 18th century. A period where there was a fierce dramatic shift in peoples everyday life and also seen as a period that shaped the future of Britain. This also brings to mind when there were new modern factories and technological advances being introduced. A century where the enlightened few were at the forefront of civilisation hence the brand draws inspiration to create a collection that embodies that period of time.
Boundaries are pushed in the form of introducing new purpose and mixing it with the old.

The AW2016 collection positions the old and new, drawing parallels to out most recent space conquest, engineering feats, advances in medicine and most importantly the explosion of the digital age. We see fine bold statement polo necks, graphics with a tongue in cheek messages, which are sliced together into collages that hint at obscure scientific advancement.
As far as the above-mentioned inspiration goes of juxtapositioning the old and the new which is clearly achieved. Another area of success of Blood Brother AW2016 collection is the colour palette. The gold glow representing the of the old burnt umber chimney furnace and blue of the deep heat on the molten metal. Smart silhouettes and thick shearling coats punctuated by standout futuristic crushed silver bomber are some of the featured pieces in the collection.
