Duke + Dexter X Made by Mensa Collaboration

A smiley face is often simply a sign of happiness – but in the case of up and coming London streetwear label Made by Mensa, it means so much more.

The suicide smile – now an iconic symbol of the brand – is a storied history of the labels founder’s struggles with mental health, but also, an emblem that stands against the dreary, the dark and the dull.

Duke + Dexter are proud to collaborate with Made by Mensa and share a potent message that’s becoming ever present in our day to day lives. By placing the suicide smile on our favourite silhouettes, the Duke loafer and the Woolf Chelsea boot, we’re sharing a journey with a leading label that sits firmly on the cuff of London’s ever evolving fashion scene.
