Bolin Webb first commissioned artist Fei Wasn't to illustrate Mr Slowboy's The Man from Mayfair in 2021, capturing the spirit of London - its creativity and traditions, its luxury and its aspirations. Walk down Piccadilly or Bond Street and you will see that this corner of England’s capital has a style of its own.
A second limited edition razor design brings a new Mr Slowboy to Bolin Webb. We introduce another side of our man – a gentleman on tour shows his attention to casual wear, alongside the colourful world of concourse exhibitions and car racing in Britain.
He stands before the bonnet of the iconic Jaguar E-Type - a unique piece of automotive design and engineering. Timeless design recognised and admired the world over. His Fedora hat provides some shelter as he inspects his car. His jacket is both distinctive and practical, and in his hand, he holds his agenda for the weekend’s motoring event.
Seasonal car racing in Britain is a popular highlight of any sunny Saturday or Sunday, with classic or supercars gathered for display - be it either in a pretty market square or in contrast at a major sporting event such as Goodwood or Silverstone, famous names for the motorsport fraternity.
Each Mr Slowboy razor is presented by Bolin Webb in a souvenir wooden gift box, with further original illustrations by the artist. This razor comes with a black razor stand so that each piece can be properly placed between shaves. Each razor set is given a unique number of its own printed on an accompanying explanatory card. Bolin Webb is very pleased to launch this latest limited edition of 300 razor sets together with the Chinese concept design retailer Drivepro, which has 20 exceptional stores in several major cities across the country. The razors will also be launched at three Radiance Blue apparel stores in Shanghai and Beijing. In London, the world-renowned Fortnum & Mason is the exclusive retailer in the UK.
The Mr Slowboy series is conceived and drawn by London-based artist Fei Wang. Slowboy - a nom de plume affectionately chosen for Fei’s even perspective in life and fashion - draws inspiration from sources like Indian miniatures, Japanese Ukiyoe and the great Hozumi Kazuo.He has arrived at a witty, subtle style with a love for vintage aesthetics and nostalgia, topped with a playfully modern twist that feels unmistakably contemporary.
Fei’s signature menswear portraits are instantly recognizable and a delightfully retro breath of fresh air, a deliberately measured antidote to the world of fast fashion. His distinctive work can be seen on his Instagram feed @mr.Slowboy.
Enjoy the shave.
