Lea Seydoux is a fan and Edie Campbell stars in the latest campaign, but for all its chic connotations, Sandro is seemingly unafraid to collate ideas with those whose influence falls from a different tree.

Hence last year’s skate collection with photographer Hugh Holland, and their forthcoming four-piece range featuring artwork from The Stone Roses, launching next month.

Founded in Paris in 1984 – five years prior to the release of the band’s debut album – for SS14 Sandro have come up with a capsule collection that references the self titled album’s cover art, painted by guitarist John Squire.

As if to further contextualise the collection, ‘Bye Bye Badman’ (as the original piece is called), depicts lemons, inspired by the mass riots in France in 1968; they nullified the effects of tear gas.

Said lemons are showcased on white long sleeve jerseys, while single artwork covers T-shirts and the band’s name runs down a sweatshirt, each in keeping with the 90s trend that continues to populate stores.

Perhaps the best band tee since Rihanna went all Nirvana? We’re sold.
