There was a 1930’s atmosphere in the air as Aiden Horwood brought his collection ‘Anomalous’ to life, capturing the essence of the era; that despite the economic struggle, managed to inspire revolutionary style and hair fashion.

“The objective as a collection was to transcend vintage looks from the 1920s and 1930s and adapt them to give a raw and masculine style tone, reflective of current fashion progression,” says Horwood. Each image in Anomalous, was intricately personalized to convey a preppy, dapper feel with attention to quirky details.

This is a modern cut with a ‘lived in’ feel. This style infuses a blend of classic style fused with the unconventional.”

This eccentric and untamed hair style presents loose texture and structure. The hair style has been offset by a dandy fashion esthetic, setting the mood of Horwood’s idiosyncratic collection.

A brushed out fingerwave creates a soft style to contrast a collarless shirt worn, giving the impression of a hard working, tough man.

This classic barber image sports a slicked back top for a cool touch of class.
