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.

Rip N Dip Fall 2016 Collection


 Florida natives Rip N Dip have come through with another extensive, cat centric collection this season, made up of several skate-ready, staples ready for the colder months on the south coast of the USA.

Again taking a unique, playful approach towards their designs, which has made the brands previous collections so popular, we see Rip N Dip introduce new tongue-in-cheek designs alongside their more familiar Lord Nermal and Alien designs. Although there are select pieces featuring bolder patterns and tie dye treatments, the majority of the release features more of a subtle colour palette to match the season, applied across tees, long sleeves, hoodies and sweaters. The brands outerwear selection has expanded to include coach jackets, patchwork varsity styles and robust work jackets, while the release is rounded off with a strong dad hat selection and a range of accessories including umbrellas, socks and stickers, as well as three new deck graphics. 

You can pick up the latest collection from Rip N Dip in select retailers now including Flatspot and Note Shop



Brain Dead Drop Five – Mondo


Creative collective Brain Dead have unveiled their 5th collection, which has dropped in UK stores and online now, again drawing from numerous obscure references for a refreshing approach towards the graphic lead staples.  

 Dubbed "Mondo" which takes inspiration from the controversial 60's documentary Mondo Cane, the collection pulls elements from skate and surf culture, old punk aesthetics, classic cartoons and more specific themes such as shokushu goukan - Japanese tentacle erotica, with bold graphics translated on to tees, long sleeves and tote bags. Alongside the more familiar logo graphic pieces which features throughout, the release is bulked out with a considered selection of cut & sew, featuring the Japanese inspired Noragi chore coat, and two patterned short sleeve shirts which feature the artwork of Jen Shear. Rounding of the collection is a small headwear range made up of embroidered 6 panels and mesh truckers, as well as printed tote bags and sticker collection.

 The latest collection from Brain Dead is available over on the brands online store as well as selected UK retailers including Goodhood and Garbstore.


Stussy x Dover Street Market AW16

 Brixton have come together with team rider Jason Jessee's Hard Luck brand on the 'Friendly Union' collection this season, consisting of a small range of apparel and headwear.

Known for their high performance bearings and custom grip tape, Hard Luck have built a strong team over the years consisting of veterans such as Mark Gonzales and Neil Blender, alongside several Brixton Union riders such as Kenny Anderson, Dolan Stearns, Jake Reuter and Jordan Taylor.

The release features custom, dual branded design by artist Necalli applied throughout, as well as the "Go Fast" slogan printed on to selected pieces.

Carhartt SS16 Lookbook 1

Carhartt WIP SS16 Lookbook

Carhartt's street level 'Work In Progress' imprint have released the visuals to their SS16 collection, which sees the brand update some of their more familiar styles as well as introduce some new seasonal pieces.

While maintaining Carhartt's ethos in robust, durable construction, Carhartt WIP's approach is a lot more accessible and allows the brand to experiment with different influences in their design . For Spring/Summer 2016 we see a lot more sportswear and athletic inspired pieces, with collegiate text featuring on coach jacket styles, rugby shirts, hoodies and sweaters, as well as a two piece tracksuit which includes a track top and bottoms, a far cry from the brands workwear roots. They have made use of various prints throughout, with military inspired camouflage applied to several items and seasonal tropical prints on short-sleeve shirts, as well as updating classic workwear designs and fabrications, such as the denim dungarees and chore jacket styles, which have been reworked with a streetwear sensibility. The collection is rounded off with a concise footwear and accessory range, including sunglasses, slip-on shoes and a fold out chair for those camp-outs.

Carhartt WIP’s SS16 collection is available now at select stockists and Carhartt's webstore.
