Très Bien x Polar Skate Co. Capsule Collection


 Polar Skate Co. are on a roll with collaborative projects of late. With a slew of popular projects behind them, last month saw the Swedish skate brand link up with Converse once again, this time to flip the Jack Purcell Tennis silhouette in to an instant skate ready classic. Polar now link up with fellow Malmö natives Très Bien on a considered collaborative release that seamlessly blends fashion and skate wear. 

Both brands have played a key role in the new wave of Scandinavian fashion, not just locally but on a global scene, the collaboration brings two different worlds but two similar styles together in what comes across as a very organic and authentic release. Combining elements of Polar's unique artwork and imagery with Très Bien clinical cuts, the collection draws inspiration from 70's styling and looks to Polar riders Paul Grund and Roman Gonzales to inform certain silhouettes such as the striped tees, track-pants and jackets, while fellow rider Dane Brady adds his artistic approach to a selection of graphics used throughout.

Take a closer look at the collection in the lookbook above. The Très Bien x Polar Skate Co. Capsule Collection is available now at select retailers including Flatspot., Goodhood and END.

Palace x adidas Originals Summer 16


 Palace & adidas Originals revive their hugely popular collaborative series this season with a new Summer collection, and it's arguably one of their strongest so far. 

When the first collaboration came about back in 2014 there was no doubt that it was as good as it promised to be, but two or three collections down the line and there was a slight worry in my mind that it could start to go stale, despite all the right ingredients being there. Their latest effort will definitely re-ignite the interest of all the doubters as Palace put their unique twist to one of the most diverse collections to date comprised of a range of classic and more innovative sportswear silhouettes. Alongside the expected chilled tracksuit tops, three stripe bottoms, graphic pullovers and football inspired polo tops, the range is lead by a seamless tonal two piece tracksuit, bearing the iconic tri-ferg logo as a back piece and constructed from a premium soft velour. The collection is rounded off with nice added touches including a matching velour towel and cap, draw-string gym bags and two new tonal suede reworks of the sleek and skate friendly Palace Pro silhouette. 

 The Palace x adidas Originals Summer 16 will be dropping online, in store and at select UK retailers from Saturday the 21st of May.

2016 continues to deliver the goods as two brands who sit at the very pinnacle of their field within the skate and streetwear industry -  Civilist and BEINGHUNTED., team up to create the limited edition 'Patrol' t-shirt to celebrate their long standing friendship. The Berlin natives draw inspiration from the neighbourhood watch groups that would patrol the streets of some of the worlds most notorious cities back in the 70's, applying a custom Civilist x BEINGHUNTED. 'Patrol' design as a small pocket print and large back graphic. Ultimately it's a graphic t-shirt, a well made graphic t-shirt, but there's no innovative materials, no crazy prints, things are kept pretty simple. What makes it great is that it's a graphic t-shirt done well by two great brands with history behind them, who have been contributing and helping to build street culture as we know it, and thats why we are fully backing it.

Brain Dead “World Update” Installation at DSM London


In celebration of common interests, Brain Dead and Dover Street Market come together on an exclusive collaborative collection and a new in-store installation at DSM’s London location.

The theme of both the collection and installation centres around the pairs shared passions in various trends and emerging subcultures from music, culture and art, and the space in-between these worlds.

The new “World Update” installation is set to host exhibitions, as well as showcase zines, records and extremely limited art pieces that align with Brain Dead’s aesthetic. The main focus of the space will be the latest Brain Dead x DSM collaborative collection which features a monochromatic selection of unique graphic tees, crewneck sweatshirts, custom headwear and the stand out ‘Jumanji’ jacket. Capping it all off, there will also be a scarf exhibit displayed on the walls of the space, featuring the work of Clay Arlington, Kevin Harris, Tim Head, Chris Oh, Jen Shear and B. Thom Stevenson. Each piece is unique and arrives in editions of 5. When purchased each scarf will come with a hand-signed certificate from each artist and will be presented in a collectors box
