Patty&Bun is more than just a restaurant company. We have got together with various artists, brands and chefs along the way to create one off limited edition tee shirts and menu items that really allow us to explore our brand’s capabilities.
It has enriched us as a brand and allowed us to tap into other creatives’ perspectives.
Plus we’ve made a whole bunch of good friends along the way!!
With a shop in Peckham and a design and print studio in Lewisham, we met when we were introduced by The Lurkers and really got along. Not only were they our next Tee shirt collaboration, but they also started designing and printing our own merch.
Typical to their style of design, they went for a geometric 3D repeat pattern spelling out ‘Patty&Done’, obviously a pun on ‘Patty&Bun’. The tees were sold with limited edition stickers, and we also threw a launch party at our Old Compton Street shop where they put on a gallery of their works.
Kayliegh is best known for her huge colourful floral murals across London. We fell in love with her work having discovered her on Instagram and seeing her pieces out and about, and just had to get in touch. Her take on our brand did not disappoint! Big bold colours creating a floral burger design with the word ‘Yummy’ flowing across it.
We held the launch party at our Old Compton Street shop where she adorned the walls and even the floor with her bold flower designs creating a mini Artista world!
We discovered The Skeleton Cardboard on Instagram and loved his style of work. Simple and stark designs, with a recurring Skeleton theme. He spent a couple of hours in our Richmond Road shop taking the atmosphere in while chowing down on a feast, and jotted everything down that popped out at him.
This then got translated into a tee shirt that perfectly represented his style of working, but incorporating everything that he saw in Patty&Bun.
One of the coolest boutique vintage clothing shops in London, Dukes Cupboard sells the finest garms from its little shop in the heart of Soho. We got together and created a simple design that incorporates both of our names into a super clean tee.
Alongside the tee we ran, ‘The Duke’ Burger as our monthly special.
We love what Bowlcut do – He takes well known brands and twists them into street slang meanings. So the tee shirt design ‘Patty&BunDat’ was born! With the addition of the slogan ‘Eat In – Take Away – Bun the Rest’.
As well as the tee shirt we shot a little film to run along the burger we created together. The film had a Willy Wonka theme, Ooompa Loompas manning our Soho shop and making the food, and during the month customers could find golden tickets in their burgers to win a second super limited black and gold tee shirt.

One of the most talented illustrators and graffiti artists we have met. We asked Tony to get involved having come across his work on the internet. So glad we was up for it!
His design was a collection of two tone burger related ideas across the back of the tee shirt in his classic illustrative style. Tony has since designed merch flyers for us. We held a launch party at our old Redchurch Street shop too.
