Bolin Webb is delighted to have engaged Mr Slowboy to create a unique personality for razors in our popular R1 range. Our man has a strong sense of style and a “twinkle in his eye”. He is well-dressed, dapper and of course, clean shaven! “As a fashion illustrator, my inspiration comes from my everyday life and the people around me,” Mr Slowboy tells Bolin Webb. His most reliable source is to notice passers-by on the streets of London – a place of authentic, well and interestingly dressed people. He says: “much as their nationalities or ethnicities and background are diverse, their tastes, senses and creativeness are equally impeccable.” The character designed for the Bolin Webb R1 razor was inspired by a young gentleman in a navy pinstripe suit in Mayfair. His image is a typical representation of London as a mixture of heritage and contemporary fashion, a message well suited to Bolin Webb.
To highlight the exclusive nature of this collaboration between artist and brand, Bolin Webb is to limit the production run to 1000 pieces. Each razor set will be numbered and every shaver with a Mr Slowboy razor will be identifiable by the number on its enclosed signature card. The Mr Slowboy gift set includes a razor and a black stand, so it can be admired as well as used for your shave. The razor and stand is presented in a prestige wooden box, exhibiting further artwork from Mr Slowboy. R1 razors are made in England and fitted with a Gillette Mach3 blade for a performance shave.
