Alasdair McLellan's Repton Boxing Club

The photographer collaborates with Brit label Sunspel on a short film about boxers in Bethnal Green

Shot by British photographer Alasdair McLellan as collaborative project with Sunspel, masters of luxurious wardrobe staple pieces, this film centres on Bethnal Green's legendary boxing club Repton. Especially of interest to the McLellan is Ryan Pickard's life, training and thoughts. The boxer, wearing Sunspel vests, Tees and briefs, is seen sparring with mates and his brother Ellis as a training session at the legendary East London sports venue is documented. Also a lads meal at the nearby E.Pelicci cafe, together with fellow athletes Sam Lawson and Louis Cadman, features in the 5 min long clip. The Sunspel clothing, famed for its sophisticated comfort under the creative direction of J.W. Anderson, feels equally at ease in the sporty environment of a boxing club as it does in a more urbane city street scenario.
