Kaleidoscopic-knit purveyor Electronic Sheep – brought to life two decades ago by Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany – couldn’t be further removed from “shrinking violet” on the fashion-design spectrum.

The bi-locational brand imbues its very fibres with feminist outpourings; each vibrant yarn the perfect canvas for seldom-heard voices (and striking illustrations).

The label’s latest piece – primed to captivate its dual audience of Dubliners and Londoners – champions non-binary communities with an equal amount of fervour, the result of partnering with genderqueer activist and consultant Dr J Harrison.

The limited-edition scarf melds powerful, palpable statements with the brand’s signature design ethos.

Don’t miss the August 11 launch in Her Upstairs if you’re knocking about London, or catch the online release later that day.
