Peter Scott is a Scottish artist & shares our appreciation of Modernism.
This led to a series of works of Cadogan Square Glasgow which have been reimagined as T-shirt graphics and will take the form of a limited edition range; however we will let Peter outline in his own words.
‘I draw buildings, particularly buildings that remind of me of times in my life and the objects and experiences I associate them with. These times are always tied to music and politics, like an Adam Curtis documentary I endeavour to make work like a collage of contexts.
Any aesthetic I use to create the image is an attempt to base the image in the era I associate it with. Basic colour schemes and the halftones resonate with the brutalist concrete landscapes, a modernist utopia. The idea of what happened lurks beneath, through the failure of our society turning them into a symbol of dystopia. Lord Anthony Jackets, Judge Dread comic books, Threads on the TV, The Smiths, New Order, My brothers Mullet and bad metal albums, Thatcher, The falklands, My Dads Renault and cords with Clarks shoes.
Getting older and wiser and listening to Bowies New Career in New Town and Jon Hopkins or some Mogwai and thinking back to Shoe gaze and my brothers record collection changing from Anthrax to The The Fall and Spacemen three via Pink Floyd then the Summer of Love then High School and not going to school but buying a ten deck and getting a bus into town. That’s where these works come from and more. There’s always something beautiful in boredom”.
Lyon 2011 Arpenteur was formed by Marc Asseily & Laurent Bourven, Immediately striking a unique aesthetic within the menswear arena.
After a visit by the brand to the 6876 studio we have kept in contact over the years always showing a mutual respect and understanding until last year when we agreed to collaborate on some unique products.
Winter 2022 Collaboration with Admiral Sporting Goods features the Capandula which fuses the modernist design lines of this garment with a more rugged luxury workwear aesthetic utilising Halley Stevenson heavy weight Cotton twill “Dry wax”outer cloth, with a brushed tartan lining.
To compliment this Jacket ASG have produced an aged garment dyed T-shirt with printed artwork on the back that dates the inception dates of the brands.

Created to celebrate Tartan Day on the 6th of April 2002, held in New York City. The tartan depicts the colourings of the streets and buildings of the city, with the green section representing Central Park. The two black stripes are to honour the memory of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre, with the blue section recognising the island of Manhattan surrounded by the Hudson & East rivers.
