Elizabeth Ilsley x Rokit

Posted on

Elizabeth Ilsley is definitely having a moment. Hot off the back of a sold out collection for Liberty, and with her first solo show on the horizon, she seems to be causing a self expression leather revolution. Her customised vintage jackets, with slogans such as "I Shave My Legs For You", "Not Today Satan" and "I Like Weird" are unavoidable when browsing the realm of Instagram. We felt she was a perfect fit for Rokit - a true vintage lover who believes the best finds are "not in the shopping centre." Sending us an email before heading down from Birmingham, Liz mused "I'm looking forward to this, I think Rokit in Camden was actually the first proper vintage shop I'd ever been in growing up. My dad took me there and I bought a denim jacket...I think it's really cool how life goes full circle!" Who knows, without that fateful trip perhaps she would have stuck to making prints! Below you'll see Liz in her favourite picks of Rokit, around London and in our warehouse, and you can scroll to the bottom to see a behind the scenes video from the day. Remember to use the hashtag #ElizabethIlsleyxRokit when sharing your purchases from the collection, and keep an eye on our Instagram page to see how you can win an exclusive customised Rokit jacket by Liz herself.
