As Carhartt WIP continue their 25th anniversary celebrations, they now look to iconic streetwear brand Stüssy to apply their creative direction to several of their iconic workwear silhouettes.
Both brands share a rich and celebrated history in streetwear, embraced by several subcultures across the years and hugely influential in the market as we know it today. Through sticking closely to their own instantly recognisable aesthetics and continuing to innovate season after season, the joint effort from Carhartt WIP and Stüssy seems the perfect way to celebrate 25 years of authenticity.
The collaborative release consists of a chore jacket, lined vest, lux-zip hoodie, ruck single knee pant, bucket hat and beanie, utilising Carhartt WIP’s hard wearing material application in construction and combining this with Stüssy’s signature logo graphics, aligning with both brands values of quality and comfort. The release has been captured in this minimal editorial shot by photographer Ari Marcopoulos and styled by Tom Guinness in New York City.
The Carhartt WIP x Stüssy AW15 Collection drops this Friday, the 20th of November, at Stüssy Chapter Stores, Carhartt WIP retailers and www.stussy.com.
Hot on the heels of their Fall 2015 release, San Diego label Brixton present their latest collection captured in another beautifully shot lookbook.
As one of the maturer brands on the market Brixton tastefully blur the lines of traditional workwear and more updated streetwear silhouettes, drawing from numerous themes to inform their design. Deeply rooted in music and the culture around their native city of San Diego, their latest collection maintains the brands signature look with the addition of new cut and sew outerwear, wovens, and pants, a strong headwear selection, and bulked out with a range of laid-back wardrobe staples. It’s a diverse release which utilises a seasonal colour palette and various heavyweight fabrics, delivering a range of goods that can be worn on their own or easily layered.
One again Brixton continue to outdo themselves on the visuals, capturing the latest collection and the lifestyle around the brand with an array of candid imagery that follows friends of the brand through their daily life routines.

London skate company Yardsale link up with workwear giants Dickies on a concise collaborative collection for Autumn/Winter 2015.
Yardsale are arguably one of the most exciting brands to emerge from the UK skate scene of recent years with their lo-fi footage, and tongue-in-cheek hardware and soft goods designs, some of the most desirable on the market. Dickies is a brand that needs little introduction, and their place skateboarding is set with the ever growing popularity of the hugely accessible and hard wearing work pant styles. This season the two parties come together to rework two of Dickies staple silhouettes – the full zip Eisenhower coach jacket and the short sleeve white work shirt, both emblazoned with Yardsale’s script logo.
To celebrate the release, Yardsale have also put together a short edit dubbed the ‘Hi-8 Mix’ featuring riders Darius Trabalza, Jake Church, Curtis Pearl, Sebastian Tabe and Sam Roberts. The Dickies x Yardsale AW15 collection is available now over on yardsale-xxx.com and all good skate stores.

Master collaborators and European sneaker institute Patta team up with Levi’s on a special collaborative collection for Fall 2015 that pays homage to the Amsterdam mainstay’s affinity for 90’s Hip Hop.
Channelling the aesthetic of rap legends including N.W.A and EMPD, the collection looks to traditional silhouettes of the era and applies subtle updates to create a modern take on the classic street uniforms. The collab comprises of three iconic Levi’s styles – the denim Trucker Jacket, 501 Custom & Tapered jeans and Western shirt – as well as distinctive Patta styles such as the Fishtail parka and Coach’s jacket, all of which have been treated with custom black and blue acid washes, with a co-branded two-horse pull back patch on the jackets. To round off the release, both brands have worked on a custom 5-panel cap, available in black and blue colour ways, as well as reworking Patta’s signature bum bag in a premium leather.
The super limited release will be arriving in two deliveries, the first being the black acid wash and the second the indigo colour options. Levi’s x Patta drop one will be available tomorrow (5th of September) on Patta’s web store as well as Hanon and The Hip Store
Brixton have dropped their latest set of visuals to showcase offerings from the Californian brands well rounded Fall 2015 collection.
Something that we have always admired about Brixton is their ability to stick closely to their core values, drawing from the laid back Californian lifestyle, encompassing the music, culture and the people around them, and still managing to deliver exciting collections season after season. Their latest release for Fall 2015 sticks closely to what we have seen from the brand previously, building on their instantly recognisable aesthetic with a collection full of versatile styles.
Headwear remains the staple throughout the Fall collection, which also sees a focus on the outerwear department, ranging from hooded puffer jackets to biker inspired leather jackets. You have the Brixton essentials in the t-shirts, long-sleeves, hoodies and sweaters alongside more considered pieces in the button-down shirts, robust trouser designs and knit options for the colder weather. There is an emphasis on keeping things simple as they reference traditional designs and utilise hard wearing, reliable materials such as corduroy and flannel. Sticking to an autumnal colour palette throughout, all pieces are able to look good on their own or layered as temperatures begin to drop.
The Brixton Fall 2015 collection is available now at select stores including Note Shop, The Chimp Store and 5Pointz
