London creative agency Peach Fuzz head to the great outdoors to capture the latest release from Seattle based outerwear brand Manastash.
The Autumn/Winter 2015 collection sits at the intersection of outdoor and urban life, fusing style and functionality into clothing that will stand up to the adverse weather, and look good doing it. With Manastash you know you are going to get a unique approach to design, as well as a range of technical features including water-proof jackets and insulated down vests. Alongside some updated classic silhouettes and fabrics, there are several new introductions that see good use of colour blocking and bold patterns; interesting pieces that stand well on their own as well as being layer-friendly. The brand also continues its ethically responsible philosophy in to the new season, sticking to their retro american inspired styles that have a Japanese sensibility towards design. Stand out pieces for us include the Manastash Thermolite Camp Layer Jacket and the Manastash Perpri 100 Jacket-9, which is available in 3 subtle colour options.
The Manastash AW15 range is available now at Peggs & Son and Flatspot.
It’s been a release that we have been eagerly anticipating since we first heard word of Brendon Babenzien leaving Supreme and announcing his intentions of reviving his Noah line. For Fall/Winter 2015 we can now take a first look at the brands new creative direction as they unveil their lookbook shot by Jake Davies.
For the man so deeply involved in Supreme’s meteoric rise to the top of the streetwear game, it’s unsurprising that the Noah collection would share some similarities. Referencing punk rock culture and post skate fashion, and drawing influence from athletic, military and outdoor designs, it is, like certain tiers within Supreme releases, a mature approach to ‘streetwear’ design. Overall it’s an extremely considered release, starting with the basic graphic tee’s and hoodies and working it’s way through to the more specialist cut and sew, with double breasted shirt options and patchwork knits, as well as casual bottoms and some well executed heavyweight outerwear. The collection is rounded off by a concise collection of headwear and accessories, most notably the 6-panel curved brim cap which is sure to be an instant sell out. All in all it’s a successful return from a brand with a strong sense of direction and one that leaves us with a lot of excitement and curiosity to see how it continues to develop.
