"Mongrelism" is their design philosophy, common for both menswear and womenswear collections. It is best described by multicultural influences and by combinations between masculine and feminine elements, between avant-garde design and classical style, subdued and bold colors, a mix translated in high-quality materials.

The result is a fresh, modern look which is "elegant and exclusive as well as sexy and cool". Mongrels In Common's style signature is the pin-collar, which is constantly used as a unique and exclusive new way to button garments.
