Australia's Common Dust have dropped a new quick strike t-shirt graphic dubbed 'Rise Against'. Known for their rebellious designs and DIY-punk aesthetic, Common Dust reference an old bumper sticker from 80's punk band, The Feederz, which Kurt Cobain made famous back in '91 when he had it stuck on his all Black Fender Stratocaster when Nirvana played at The Reading Festival.
Nike SB Australia and The 4 Skateboard Company have teamed up on this 10-minute clip dubbed ‘344’. Filmed and edited by Geoff Campbell, the video celebrates the pro debuts of Casey Foley, Mike Martin and Harry Clark.
Perth’s Butter Goods return with their latest lookbook showcasing new skate ready goods ready for the Australian Summer.
Although we won’t be blessed with the sunny weather which is on it’s way down under, we can still appreciate some good design work, and Butter Good’s latest collection is full of that. They continue to stick closely to the themes we saw in previous collections, from the visuals to the heavily graphic lead t-shirt and long sleeve designs. The colour palette is varied throughout, with some familiar pieces reworked for the new season as well as some new playful print designs that put a different spin on some iconic logos and characters. Rounding off the release we have a small selection of caps and shorts, as well as the stand out retro soccer jersey, which look like they’ve been inspired by the old USA kits.
The lookbook shot by Garth Mariano and Jay Dymock once again takes us on a tour through the brands home town of Perth, hitting up various street spots with the Butter Goods team donning the new garms. You can expect to see Butter Goods Summer 2015 collection arriving on UK shores at retailers including Urban Industry and Scene Preston from next week.
Perth’s Butter Goods deliver another solid range of skate ready staples for their Spring 2015 offering, captured in this accompanying lookbook by Garth Mariano, James Whineray and Jay Dymock, which sees the crew hanging out on the streets of their home town.
The brand has been one of the stand out imports from Australia for us over the past few years, with their instantly recognisable, lo-fi aesthetic and regressive visuals, they have managed to differentiate themselves from the pack. This seasons release sticks largely to the brands signature look with gritty designs across bold staple pieces, the collection is made up of graphic based tees, long sleeves and light functional outerwear, as well as colour blocked rugby shirts which have been a key feature in previous releases, and a healthy selection of caps and beanies.
Australian retailer StreetX present this nocturnal lookbook for Spring/Summer 2015, showcasing the latest from their in-house collection.
For those that aren’t that clued up on the brand, StreetX began back in 2011, originally founded as an online web store selling a range of carefully selected independent brands, with the concept for the branding and the stores name inspired by a new stock exchange market – Chi-X. Quickly gathering momentum, StreetX soon became a recognised name on the streetwear scene in Australia with the arrival of their first physical store and their own label picking up interest overseas, following collaborations with the likes of aNYthing and Raised By Wolves. StreetX plays a huge role in the movement over in Australia that is seeing more and more brands from the region with a strong sense of direction and unique aesthetic, and because of these attributes they are causing a stir on a global scale.
For their latest collection, StreetX have incorporated their familiar Aussie beach themes into their designs while also looking to Old Blighty for inspiration, applying the famous Lion from the 3 lions logo as a back print. Heavily graphic based throughout, the release consists of tees, long sleeves, socks and a solid headwear collection to sit next to cut and sew pieces in the shorts and jacketing options. The palette is kept simple throughout with just enough pop of colour to make the pieces summer ready and highly wearable.
Australia’s Common Dust pick up from where they left off as they follow up collection 1.1with another considered release that aligns with the brands lofi aesthetic.
The Melbourne based label burst onto the scene last Summer with their inaugural collection for the Australian Winter (reverse seasons), gaining instant recognition for their authenticity and originality. Since then, Common Dust have continued to develop their range all the while carrying through their DIY punk informed designs and rebellious spirit throughout each release. Collection 2 sees much of the same, referencing skateboarding, music and art themes from the 80’s and 90’s, placing a variety of strong graphic prints onto street ready apparel including tees, long-sleeves, hoodies and a small collection of headwear and tote bags.
The Common Dust 2015 Collection 2 is available now via the brands website: www.common-dust.com. Hopefully we will see the brand make their way over to the UK soon, but for now be sure to take advantage of their free worldwide shipping!
Perth based independent skate label Butter Goods return with their latest set of lo-fi visuals to showcase their Winter 2015 collection.
While many try to over complicate things in their design, its nice to see a brand stick to their guns, keep things simple and continuously improve their own unique aesthetic. Their latest release for Winter 2015 (reverse seasons down under!) is comprised largely of what we’ve come to expect from the brand, with a range of skate ready basics including tees, long sleeves and hoodies, as well as a strong selection of headwear and jacketing options. The collection is heavily graphic based applying simple yet bold designs and reworks of the brands globe logo, with several colour blocked and embroidered pieces in the outerwear section. Thanks to the mild winter down under, the release has got you covered for the British summer also with a selection of caps and bucket hats suitable for the warmer weather.
