Stepney Workers Club

Founded in 2018, the East London based Stepney Workers Club is run by Simon See (brand manager) and Roger Pereira (head of design). The creative duo have sourced their inspiration from around a hundred years of British work and sportswear, honing in on the timeless styles of the workers sports clubs that were popularised throughout the 1930’s.

Their ethos is summarised in their tagline; ‘Freedom Of Sport, Freedom Of Thought’, which the forward thinking brand use to represent their philosophical ideas of inclusivity in all of their pieces. Their staple silhouettes are perfect for daily wear, drawing on notes of the canvas shoes worn by countless subcultures throughout the 1900’s while equally combining a vulcanised sole made popular by more contemporary brands such as Vans.

This combination of contemporary and heritage transcends into their production methods, some of which are of a bygone era - setting their vulcanisation process apart from those of today's traditionally modern designs.

These timeless styles revolve primarily around premium materials. Most recently having introduced corduroy into the rotation for SS19 across their signature Dellow model, however the primary inspiration for the season came from eighties sportswear which resonates most in their white canvas iteration of the Dellow.

SWC have a promising future ahead, having already been cited by Hypebeast as one of the top five emerging sneaker brands to look out for.
