LFT FLD is the brainchild of two of the UK’s key players in the skate/streetwear scene and this Autumn/Winter they release their inaugural collection full of 90′s inspired silhouettes, with a contemporary twist.
Recent years have seen increased interest in british streetwear, sneaker culture and our skate scene, and for good reason. With the huge hype around American brands its easy to forget sometimes that the UK holds some of the worlds most sought after stores and is home to some of the most unique independent brands of the moment. UK streetwear is definitely on the up and Gareth Skewis (Palace and Slam City Skates) and Paul Ruffles (size? and Footpatrol) have been a huge part of the UK movement. Their experience and skill has been channelled into this impressive collaborative effort – LFT FLD.
Taking a retrospective approach whilst applying refined, considered construction, LFT FLD present a solid selection of sportswear inspired apparel. Performance outerwear options in the contemporary neoprene jacket and reversible hoodie are the stand out pieces, while staple athletic silhouettes dominate the release, bearing heavy graphic designs from none other than Fergus Purcell – the man behind the Palace logo and many other big name designs, has now turned his attention to the graphic identity and branding for LFT FLD.
The LFT FLD first release is available now at size? and will be available from other select retailers shortly.
