SADE ENGLISH is a London based visual and wearable independent conceptual brand. ANTICLONE is the concept, which defines to not conform to suit society.
Sade Byfield, Creative Director and Founder of the SADE ENGLISH & ANTICLONE graduated from London College of Fashion in Design Pattern Cutting in 2012. The SADE ENGLISH signature element explores deconstruction of the human body form whilst re sculpturing new silhouettes. Through unique pattern cutting and draping techniques
SADE ENGLISH creates wearable art forms that is genderless.
Personally in control of all aspects, from concept to final outcome each collection is bespoke designed, hand made and never cloned.
Refusing to submit to traditional womenswear and menswear Sade formed the ANTICLONE concept in 2014 which symbolises both visual and wearable art that does not conform to suit society. Inspiration is drawn from Afro-futurism and Sade’s personal unique heritage of Andean and African ancestry exploring ANTICLONE as a movement and concept though art design, photography and film.
The colour black is common throughout each collection, both visual and wearable works which is symbolic and plays homage to her ancestry.
Clean minimalism and structured draping, has become a signature style and an abstract aesthetic in her story telling through each collection, which is individually named, previously titled Daphne, Skin, Embodied and her upcoming collection Immortal, not conforming to seasonal collections.
In memory of Marcia Elaine Byfield and Daphne English.
