We say the children are our future, and it seems that Rag & Bone co-founder Marcus Wainwright takes it pretty seriously, seeing artistic potential in his two sons. Henry and Noah loved stealing their father's sketchbook to doodle in. One day, during a design meeting, Marcus found pages of their scribbling, including "hybrid Japenese Transformers", and the team decided that they should be used as a pattern.

And so a limited edition capsule collection was born, with the two boys' drawings made into T-shirts, leggings, tank tops (Henry's robot drawing was made into kids' tees).

"This felt pretty different. It's more of a graphic. When you blow it up, twist it, and make it black and white, it transforms from being a child's drawing into something pretty cool," Marcus said.

If we didn't already know, we would never have thought that two children, aged five and seven were actually the ones behind the designs. Because, come on, abstract art.
