The London-based Stefan Cooke brand is directed by Cooke and his partner Jake Burt. The combination of Cooke’s subversion of textile techniques and Burt’s skill for silhouette and design underpins the signature style of the pairs’ forthcoming looks. Technique is at the heart of the process for their work and continues to be a force of innovation.
Cooke cut his teeth working alongside Walter van Beirendonck, Craig Green, and John Galliano and won the H&M Design Award 2018 and L’Oréal Professionnel Creative Award 2017, giving him the instrumental framework to start his namesake label. Where he specializes in textile manipulation and cerebral conceptualization, Burt’s affinity to shape exquisite silhouettes is at the heart of the brand’s sophisticated aesthetic, freely exhibited in flattering cuts intended to accentuate the male form.
