Philip Colbert is the Scottish designer behind playful The Rodnik Band fashion label.
His latest AW13 collection "It's Corgi Time" - full of doubledecker and black taxi bags, teacups and
other British motifs- has benefited from all the Jubilee hype we are going through these days. Looking through his other collections, it is easy to compare him with French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and American designer Jeremy Scott for the strong sense of fun his clothing possesses.
But this designer doesn't only make fashion, he is also involved in song writing and video making, he is a perfect mix of fashion, music and art. You know you have to love him when you read in the label's website that in the studio they listen to "The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Public Image Ltd and Marcel Duchamp lectures" and the Rodnik band woman "has the spirit of a young Peggy Guggenheim".
