Upper Echelon has just dropped three new styles of tees for their latest AW17 range, namely the 'U.E. Embroidered', The 'U Applique' as well as the 'U.E. Logo' Tee. The brand has been garnering a lot of support of late for their dedication to unique technical streetwear with previous notable items including the technical 'Shell Jacket' and 'Ebbets' Feild Baseball cap. This latest Autumn / Winter range features design elements including embroidery, felt application, stitched logos and as always a keen focus on detail whilst remaining true to the 'made in South Africa' roots.
On the evening of the 9th of March 2017, A Store launched the highly anticipated White Mountaineering x adidas Originals SS17 collection. This is the second time the Japanese technical sportswear purveyors and adidas Originals have teamed up on a full collection and by the looks of the complete range as a whole, the partnership has much to offer in the way of originality and design. Black and white geometric prints, interspersed amongst technical cuts and attention to even the smallest detail are apparent in this collection of sneakers, jackets, hoodies, tees and track pants. Bloggers, sneakerheads, skaters and fashion industry types all collided on a warm Cape Town Summers evening to see what the two brands had conjured up.
The Manhattan-based streetwear label known as 'Only NY' launches in store and online tomorrow. Inspired by the city of New York as well as its love of nature, skateboarding, arts and photography 'Only NY' seeks to create quality goods made exclusively in the USA. Since its inception in 2006 'Only' has grown from strength to strength while sticking to its mandate of quality-produced, limited edition garments and accessories with a strong focus on their shared love of New York. Middle school friends and Art School drop outs Micah Belamarich and Julian Goldstein, 'unconcerned with pushing a lifestyle', started 'Only' with the intention of creating an outlet for their unique personalities while remaining intrinsically New York. A Store will be the exclusive supplier of 'Only NY' in South Africa and limited units will be available.
