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.
You can pick up the latest from StreetX over at Urban Industry now.
