WARDROBE ECT WITH ELECTRONIC SHEEP

Brad McGlashan

Are you sick of the monotony of winter yet? Snap out of it! It’s time to hook yourself up to some electrodes and give your wardrobe a ZING, ZAP, KAPOW with Electronic Sheep’s ‘Universal Cowboy’ Scarf

Buzzing with shades of pink, yellow and purple, this winter wooly triangle wrap is going to see you through the last of this arduous month and light years beyond. But what to wear with it? A stand-alone piece, it merely needs ‘supportive’ players, but players with major A-game!

Merging Western elements with a little ‘80s nostalgia, we have layered the scarf over Goen.J’s faux-leather shirt-come-wrap dress. The drapery detail balances the handle of the scarf perfectly. Off-White’s cowboy boots are made, well, read for yourself- ‘For Walking’! They nod to Electronic Sheep’s western inspiration but also channel fashion’s new found love of text, be it a slogan or logo. Prada’s neon backpack (a long awaited revival), Mykita’s zingy green frames and Roxanne Assoulin’s crystal bracelets make the outfit spark and highlight the punchy hues in the scarf. Keep the look modern and edgy with Oscar de la Renta's spikes earrings.

GAME OVER! This outfit pulses with electricity and will have you sheriffing the streets like a modern space cowboy! Yee-haw! 

KNITWEAR GETS ELECTRONIC

Gender-neutral cowboys, space, saloon barmaids — Electronic Sheep is knitwear not as you know it. Founded by childhood friends, Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany, this Irish label is defined by its detailed tapestry-esque jacquards and imagery that evoke a sense of nostalgia that is both retro and contemporary. 

Electronic Sheep’s latest collection ‘Universal Cowboy’ brings to mind being a teenager in the 80s, with its acid hued graphics like icons of a classic arcade game. The duo have often cited the influence of growing up in suburban Dublin during the 80s. Their aesthetic draws from the myriad of cultural movements at the time like mod, punk, ska, metal, new wave and the new romantics. Their designs echo the radical nature of the era but are very much of today. 

Commissioned by the ‘Crafts Council of Ireland’ in aid of local knitwear makers, ‘Universal Cowboy’ reads like a great Western, with motifs inspired by Arizonian landscapes, cowboy boots bought in Vegas and Mexican cigarette packets. Crafted by specialist makers in Greece with 100% merino wool, each scarf generously sized, some almost blanket-like, and is made to see you through a chilly Winter. 

We're so excited to include Electronic Sheep at Skarfe, as they're unlike anything we have seen before - much like a cowboy in space!
