"I started out painting my school books when I was a kid. Like, every single school book and folder was just covered in sketches and drawings. So I guess I never really stopped drawing and painting, I just kept on changing what I was painting on.

I began painting on walls, and skateboards, and surfboards, and vodka bottles, and eventually brands like McDonalds and Mercedes and Red Bull started to pay attention. So I got to paint sports cars and make sculptures and once I sold a piece to Dan Aykroyd the actor! Now I'm doing my own line of denim jackets which is awesome because I can make each one unique."

- Handbrake the Artist

Handbrake Design


Because we value things that are unique. Maybe you do too.

We love people who are bold enough to wear their style out loud - those who aren't ashamed to own their own life. Be colourful.

Handbrake x Rose denim is about joining with those like minded people while also keeping something just for you. Something nobody else has.
Our designs aren't printed in a huge factory. They're painted, each one by hand, and each one slightly different.

We'll only ever make 25 of each design and use genuine graffiti paints that we'd use on any wall mural. It's time to wear art.

Handbrake Design


Handbrake represents embracing the quirkiness inside you and not only being unafraid to show it but actively showcasing it to the world. Being mundane and the same as everyone and everything else is something I avoid.
My style is a mix of tattoo, cartoon, caricature, graffiti, street art, and was once described as “junkyard art”. It’s jumbled and intricate with bold lines and usually bursts of colour.
