There is no subculture without style – as London-based fashion designer Samantha McCoach will tell you. The Royal College of Art graduate first founded her brand Le Kilt in 2014, inspired by a black kilt her Italian grandmother, who worked as a kilt-maker on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile for more than 40 years, had made for her. And perhaps there’s no subculture without music, either; Le Kilt was named after a post-punk club that dominated Soho’s Greek Street in the early 1980s, in a neat and knowing tribute to the underground spirit that has driven McCoach from the word go. In the years since its conception, Le Kilt has made a name for itself above-ground, too, combining traditional Scottish craftsmanship with contemporary concepts, styles and colourways. Old meets new in these forward-thinking pieces – rebellion and nonconformity woven into their very fabric.
