One thing that the English artist Eliot Sumner
once shared with many teenagers is their deep, lasting love of music. The one thing they probably didn’t? Having Sting as their dad. Yet despite any of the striking resemblances people might no longer unsee once they’ve made the connection, Sumner has definitely carved out a creative path of their own. One that weaves through all of the crowds they’ve captivated as a bandleader and DJ, the set of the newest James Bond film, No time to die
, and into the eclectic cast of young creatives who’ve teamed up with Gant
to reimagine the future face of sportswear. We sat down with Sumner to chat about inspirations, future prospects, and the importance of feeling yourself.
