Model and artist King Owusu has teamed up with independent streetwear firm Lazy Oaf to create the gardening-inspired clothes.
Profits from the colourful range will improve lives through Thrive’s therapeutic gardening programmes.
Working with the Lazy Oaf design team, King has created a complementary denim jacket and pants, with bright and eye-catching gardening motifs, including a black gardener appreciating a flower.
King, who uses his work to communicate about black identity, explained why he was drawn to support Thrive: ‘Thrive are amazing. I have been super-inspired by the idea of using gardening as a tool for health and healing.’
Stacey Lewis, Thrive’s Fundraising Manager, said: ‘This is an exciting creative collaboration and we’re delighted that King has chosen to support Thrive in this way and thrilled that Lazy Oaf have made this partnership possible.
‘The collection joyfully captures not only the colour and creativity of gardening, but how positive it is for wellbeing. It’s also a really original fashion statement.’
