We Believe In First-Rate Fashion

Rick Savage pours some sugar on fashion nostalgia

Def Leppard bass guitarist Rick Savage and his son Scott have collaborated with fashion designer Nick Holland on a new clothing line, Overnight Angels Crew

The collection centres on a confluence between rock’n’roll and motorcycle subculture, with an urban twist. The collections will feature a range of clothing, accessories and limited-edition artwork. 

Designer Holland previously worked on Oasis’s Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green line in 2011, and brings with him decades of design experience.

The brand hopes to collaborate with the likes of Death Cigarettes, the shock-artist cigarette brand that has been recently revitalised as a fashion brand. 

The brand has a focus on nostalgic authenticity influenced by the rock soul of the 80s and 90s. 

‘Capsule collections’ from the brand will be released four times a year, while the seasonal Stage Collection will be a line of one-of-a-kind pieces.

“The collection has been developed from a place of nostalgia, inspired by the title track of Ian Hunter’s 1977 album ‘Overnight Angels’,” said Savage (pictured). “I had just been released from Sheffield United Football Club and was at a crossroads in my life.

“It was that summer of ’77 that Def Leppard formed and so I really wanted to pay homage to such a pivotal moment in my life. And to be able work on this alongside my son, Scott, means so much more.”

Fashion designer Holland added: “Rick and Scott Savage had a vision from the start, and it’s been great to work together to bring it to life. We focused on the modern consumer and designed pieces that are high in quality and unique in style.”
