Working closely with Urban Industry and Dickies Europe, we have put together a selection of seasonal looks from the Dickies Spring/Summer 2015 range.
With a heritage that spans almost 100 years, Dickies were, and still are, the go to brand for high quality workwear, offering functionality, durability and comfort in their construction. Recent times have seen the brand make moves into the streetwear and skate market thanks to the increased popularity of workwear styles, as well as their durable work pants being adopted by skaters for their reasonable pricing and ability to withstand the rigours of skating.
Their latest range offers a mixture of casual and smarter options, while the work pant remains the staple piece, reworked into numerous fits to cater to different sizes and looks. From basic t-shirts and sweaters to more stand out items such as the Honolulu shirt and Cedar Key Rugby Shirt, the offering is diverse and full of essentials that have withstood the test of time.
For the visuals we aimed to highlight the variety within range, showcasing a variety of looks and working around the brands popular work pant, dressing the styles up and down. We chose to capture the collection in an urban environment, reflecting how the clothing would be worn in an everyday scenario.

Looking through our constant Brand Update posts, you can probably tell we are a huge fans of San Francisco based HUF. Founded by pro-skater Keith Hufnagel, HUF’s rich heritage in skate, street wear and sneakers has seen it grown into one of the most renowned brands across the globe.
Their latest Spring collection sees HUF continue to grow stronger, with a range of graphics, prints and patterns, as well as cut and sew, the comprehensive collection has every aspect of the season covered.
Our aim for the shoot was to take the San Fran brand and place it into an every day Brighton situation. We captured James, Jason and Dexter hanging out for the day around Brighton, decked out in the latest offering from HUF. We mixed up a range of tees, shirting, sweaters and head wear from both the Spring drops to put together relaxed styles perfect for a day down the park or on the streets. Stand out pieces for us include the Tonal Classic ‘H’ raglan in black and the Ascent Mountain Parka in jade.
Check out images from the shoot below. A huge thanks to our models Jason, James and Dexter. The awesome HUF 2014 Spring range is available now at most HUF dealers and at www.hufworldwide.com. Find the collection here; Urban Industry, The Chimp Store & Street Casuals

Since 1997, New York based Only NY have been developing a brand that represents all aspects of life in the Big Apple. Inspired by graffiti, skateboarding and street culture, the lifestyle brand always delivers collections full of timeless, quality pieces. We linked up once again with our friends from Urban Industry to shoot the latest collection for Spring/Summer 2014.
The collection is diverse, with a range of graphics, prints and colour inspired by city life, with nautical elements making appearances. The release includes tees, sweaters, hoodies, coach jackets, long sleeve polo tops and a comprehensive head wear range. In a seemingly faultless collection, our favourite pieces included the white Manhattan Tour Crew neck Sweatshirt, the Planter short sleeve shirt with matching bucket hat and the wheat Polo hat in natural/bone.
