Generic Surplus and The Generic Man have found a new creative director in the Manchester-born Greg Chapman. After contributing to the footwear lines since their inception six years ago, the man and the brands decided to make it a full-time partnership, and Chapman has taken the helm just in time to start designing the Spring / Summer 2014 collection. Details are scant, but Chapman says to expect “more color, new fabrics and some additional silhouettes” in the expanding range. This is a definitely a partnership to keep an eye on, so we'll be staying tuned for more info.
