SARAH & SORRENTINO
Sarah & Sorrentino is an innovative textile design brand specialising in quality silk clothing and accessories, established in 2014 by creative duo, Sarah Pasricha and Louisa Sorrentino.
Each beautifully crafted garment produced by Sarah & Sorrentino is made and printed right here in the UK, and boasts colourful, intricate designs, including eye-catching, geometric patterns and nature-inspired prints.
Sarah & Sorrentino designed Boboto especially for Syndicut - this print will be available to buy in our classic men's swim shorts very soon!
Having established her namesake design brand, TF Concept – Design, in 2013, the projects of self-taught Portuguese artist, Tânia Filipa, embody an abstract vision, and range from creating graphics for high profile brands to design work for smaller independent clients.
Filipa’s practice is largely influenced by minimalist art and electronic music, crafting bold, yet refined designs for use on a range of products, including fashion, packaging, logos and album artwork; Filipa explains that “the beauty of simple elements is what she stands for.”
Filipa’s Hexagon print features in our SS16 collection of men’s swim shorts, and is available in the shortie style.
GRÁINNE NAGLE (NOUNUA)
Gráinne Nagle’s prints caught our attention due to their bold, inquisitive exploration of space, form and colour. Nagle often combines printmaking and collage in her refined compositions, creating simplistic but effective pieces which immediately catch the eye.
This collaboration has resulted in a new selection of lounge pants, boxers and our new generously sized, durable canvas tote bag, available in Gráinne Nagle's Blue Triangle print, as well as a range of tees printed in three different geometric designs – coming soon!
Freelance print designer, Philli Bradshaw, creates intricate repeat patterns for fashion and homeware, and sells to high street outlets across London, New York and Japan. Based in East London, Philli works with drawing and painting before using digital software, heat transfer techniques and screenprinting to print her artwork onto luxurious silks.
We have been collaborating with Philli recently to produce our classic swim shorts in her beautiful, nature-inspired prints, including Blue in the Tropics and White in the Tropics prints, designed exclusively for Syndicut.
Frea Buckler studied Fine Art, Printmaking at Central Saint Martins in London and more recently passed her Masters degree with Distinction in Print at UWE in Bristol.
Frea’s latest work retains the precision and technique of screenprinting but adopts an improvisational method more like drawing or painting to produce series’ of unique prints. This process embraces the balance between chaos and control.
The probable but impossible forms resemble unfolded boxes or origami – bending, folding and opening out in different directions. They play with illusion and perception, they fit and don’t fit, there are loose ends and spaces in between. They are visual representations of our processes and behaviours, such as poise and balance, rather than objects.
Tyen Masten is an architectural designer living in London. Originally from California he spent ten years working with Zaha Hadid before striking out on his own and forming PHASE3.
His studio's work is strongly inspired by patterns which are developed into complex graphic drawings supporting each project’s idea. This playful approach leads to original and unexpected outcomes which often feed back into PHASE3's architectural projects.
Based in London, PHASE3 is working on projects both in the UK and overseas.

Devon-based contemporary artist, Carl Cashman, is one of our newest collaborators, and the man behind our classic swim shorts in his A Pottery Gorilla print. Cashman’s style is defined by strikingly colourful, abstract work, exploring pattern, form and space.
Cashman works with a range of media, from paint to print, and a range of surfaces from canvases and paper to street walls, creating works of art which challenge how we perceive colour and form, producing playful optical illusions and seemingly animated linear patterns.

Artist Laurie Nouchka creates limited edition drawings and paintings that lift her art work off the canvas onto a uniquely designed range of style focused and contemporary sports-luxe wear.
Embedded in the heart of the city she draws inspiration from the iconic, urban landscape around her. In doing so she has developed a bold, architectural approach to her artwork. She has exhibited in London, Barcelona and New York and her work can be found in both private and public collections.
Infused with the expertise of fashion designers, her observational drawings of iconic buildings are translated as geometric and linear forms into repeated patterns across a range of her own carefully designed garments. The vibrant, abstracted prints reflect the dynamic rhythms of urban living offset by the functional, clean lines of the collection.

Selwyn was born in Canada and educated in England. He studied 3D Design at Kingston University, London. He now lives in Dorset, England with his wife where they own Dansel Gallery. This series of prints for Syndicut are derived from Selwyn's carved wood plaques. Inspired by North America Native Art in particular work by Bill Reid and the Haida Tribe of British Columbia and Alaska. These 'Spirit Plaques' are made of laminated solid timbers, birch, plywood and coloured veneers. These are glued together and shaped exposing the grain using oblique scoops and grooves. These lead into designs with unexpected patterns of colour. For more examples of Selwyns work please visit his website www.selwynholmes.co.uk

Textile designer Fergus McDonnell was born and brought up in Northampton. He studied at Falmouth College of Arts, Cornwall.
Fergus co-founded ‘The Pattern Guild’ – an independent design company that specialises in pattern-based geometric products.
