Rebel8 continue to apply their rebellious styles to a range of street ready pieces as they present their Winter collection for 2014.
The Californian brand takes a focus on layering for the colder seasons, with an array of bold graphic tees, sweaters and hoodies featuring the animated styles from the brands founders – Joshy D and Mike Giant. The street ready staples are complimented by a solid selection of cut and sew pieces from button-up shackets with patch detailing to a matching patterned shirt and trouser combo. It’s clear that Rebel8 have put a lot of energy into their outerwear selection for the season, made up of perfectly executed puffer jackets and lined parka styles, that take a minimal approach to branding and instead let their construction do the talking.
The Rebel8 Winter 2014 collection will be available at UK stores including Urban Industry from the 1st of December.
Only NY make use of premium materials and once again reference previous era’s, as they present a concise capsule collection of winter ready hats.

The release compliments their mainline collection well as they continue to revisit nostalgic themes, especially in the aztec pattern pinch panel, giving off a kind of a toned down fresh prince vibe.
The Only NY Winter hats capsule is available at the brands flagship store over in New York now, but will also be available online this coming Monday (November 10th) at 8pm over at onlynylives.com

Following the success of the ‘SPEZIAL’ gallery exhibition held in London back in 2013, 3-stripe devotee Gary Aspden now turns his attention to an archive inspired capsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2014.
The ‘SPEZIAL’ exhibition was curated to celebrate adidas through the brands collectors and fans, and that name has since carried to represent the very essence of the brand to its followers. This season, the adidas Originals ‘SPEZIAL’ capsule release continues the brands dedication to those passionate towards the brand as they draw from their rich history in sportswear and lifestyle, combining the two to deliver a collection that symbolises adidas’ unique personality in design.
The collection includes 12 classic apparel silhouettes which have all been given a contemporary update using more premium cuts and fabrics. Stand out pieces include the technical Olive Coach Jacket and the iconic Beckenbauer tracksuit, each re-worked for modern day.
Gary Aspden who designed and curated the collection summed up the release;
“adidas Originals x SPEZIAL takes work that was already done by genius German designers and changes the context… re-presenting it as something contemporary.”
The adidas Originals x SPEZIAL capsule collection is available in limited numbers at www.oki-ni.com.

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.
