Our second collaboration with British artist and designer Luke Edward Hall is a fitting blend of Hall’s “irreverent romanticism” and Rowing Blazers Creative Director and founder Jack Carlson’s background as a classical field archaeologist. A portion of all proceeds from the collection will benefit the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives and World Language Advocacy efforts of the American Classical League’s National Committee for Latin and Greek.
“I’m excited about this, because working with Luke is always so special — and also because we are helping students and schools access teaching in Greek and Latin,” explains Jack, who also worked as a Latin teacher before founding Rowing Blazers. “Studying Classics helped make me the person I am today, and it’s something I wish more people were able to study.”
Hall adds: “I am extremely thrilled to be working with Rowing Blazers again after our initial 2018 collaboration. This new collection expands upon our original offering with prints and embroideries made from new drawings, as well as new colourways. Once again, I took inspiration from the classical world, and I am delighted that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the National Committee for Latin and Greek for their inclusion projects, as organised by Jack. Having been fascinated by the stories, myths, art and architecture of Ancient Greece and Rome since childhood, I am very happy to be supporting an organisation that promotes the study of Latin and Greek.”
