Not a massive release, but they’re all good quality designs so better that than having some filler in there. I really like the hoodie, especially since it passes my oft-mentioned test of “can I wear this on any day other than October 31st?”

THE BEAUMONT V1 480x652 Negrete have changed, I like it

BIG L 480x652 Negrete have changed, I like it

It’s been a while since I wrote about Negrete so they got in touch to let me know that they’ve been up to, which appears to be quite a lot if the new goods above are anything to go by, and there’s quite a lot more where that came from. There’s some really crisp design work here, lots of clean lines and very wearable pieces. With me writing about so many different brands it’s hard for me to keep tabs on them, which makes it interesting when I get a snapshot every few months seeing how a brand evolves, it’ll be interesting to watch their next steps.

Really solid A/W range Vapour and interesting to see them trying something different with that cut and sew shirt. It’s quite nice at this time of year when things start to transition over to brands releasing hoodies and sweaters, sure, it’s sad that I’ve had to put my shorts away for another year, but I do like that feeling of being wrapped up warm in a nice hoodie. I am curious what the idea was behind the overexposed images in the lookbook are all about though, it makes it quite hard to see the actual products.

947146 10151526999345852 1374807038 n 480x260 Hot Fuzz inspired Supercop Cadet hoodie at Dark Bunny Tees
It’s just a pre-order at the moment, so I guess you could say that when it’s released that this “hoodie just got real!”

I’m sorry for forcing that on everyone, I just wanted to make a reference to a movie since that seems to be all you need to do these days to be popular on the internet.

Costiness=£35 Pre-order at Dark Bunny Tees

scared til winter 2013 lookbook11 480x339 Say hello to Scared Til Death
Scared Til Death have really impressed me with this ‘Winter’ (they’re Australian) collection of tees crew necks and hoodies (there’s more available but I thought seven pictures was enough), though the price is a bit off-putting to a European spoiled by all the free samples that I’ve received over the past few years, at AUD$60 for a tee which equates to pretty much USD$60 these days. It’s a lot for a t-shirt, but knowing the Australian market I would expect that they aren’t actually making a large markup on that, t-shirts simply cost more in Australia to the point where it has the unfortunate consequence of pricing out most customers from outside the country, especially if you add on the postage charges ($24 to the US for a tee, $28 to the UK). Honestly, it’s just too much and it’s something that I can’t ignore, which is a real pity.

Impressive new collection from Sin Star, I’d say that it follows a lot of the trends that are hot in the UK at the moment, but I’m fairly sure that does Sin Star a disservice since they’re probably actually influencing the scene at the moment. There’s a load more in the collection but I didn’t want to put too many images in this post.

You can generally tell how much I like a collection by the amount of pictures that I share of it, sometimes if it’s a big release from a brand I might skip one or two of the items just for the sake of brevity, but in the case of this #TokyoTribes collection from Project A Apparel I’ve included every item, if not all of the many, many lookbook photos the are available. Here’s what Project A have to say about the collection:

Project A Apparel are back with their first drop from their SS 2013 line, this time taking a trip to the far east with #tokyotribes. The first release from the collection focuses on the brand’s experiences and influences from Japan, taking in imagery from classic anime movies , Bosozuku biker gangs and video games. Featuring graphic tshirts, sweatshirts, a zip up hoody, hats as well as their very first illustrated oxford shirt. The new collection showcases two guest collaborators, Dublin artist Morgan who worked on the Lucky Pussy tee and patch graphics and world renowned Irish godfather of graffiti, Rask.

The collection was actually released on May 1st, but as I was away I’m sure you’ll forgive me for being a bit tardy with this one.

I am constantly impressed by the quality of designs at Sevenly, but it’s so depressing hearing about all the people that they’re helping with their charity donations. Can’t a guy just bury his head in the sand and enjoy the fantastic artwork?

This week $7 from every tee sale if going to the Polaris Project, which works to help fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

seasonthree 36 480x268 LUVD release a big Spring line with some great designs
I was going through the lookbook for the third season of releases from LUVD and just when I expected it to end a new item popped up, which has resulted in the massive gallery you can see below, and I haven’t even included all the images!

It is a wonderful release from LUVD, my standard yardstick of whether I like a collection is whether I would wear it, and in this case I can say yes, I would wear absolutely every item. The standout piece for me is the ‘Forgive’ t-shirt, I like the typework on it, but they’ve done a good job with the logo items as well. Great lookbook photography really helps to bring it all alive too. Tee are $24/26, and hoodies will set you back $45.

Rawvault SS13 Lookbook and Video

SS13 Lookbook Video from Rawvault on Vimeo.

I like lookbook videos, especially when they come from brands that I haven’t heard of before, it’s a really good visual introduction and helps give a good feeling for what the brand are about. However, in this case it also brought up a fairly large error from the outset which distracted me for the rest of the video. Just after the title splash we can see the front of one of their new hats (best view at 10 seconds), with Rawvault in large text and the phrase “Get What Your Given” embroidered on it. Unfortunately, I haven’t made the typo in that phrase, they have, as if should be “Get What You’re Given.” As the range is not yet on sale on their site (though lots of other cool stuff is from their own brand and others, nice to see The Quiet Life in there) hopefully that means it’s samples in the lookbook and they can have the correct spelling on the full run because I wouldn’t buy something if I knew there was an error on it as Iwouldn’t want to wear something that would lead to know-it-alls like myself correcting the spelling on my clothing. Or maybe it’s meant to be spelled wrong, that seems like something that cool brands might do.

a24b036b400386a0 Product 01 1 shirt can saves the lives of 14 African children at Sevenly this week
I’m usually fairly cynical about charity t-shirt sites, Sevenly has proven to be an exception since they always (always!) have good looking tees and give a good portion of the shirt cost to charity, but the effect that this weeks donation can give has really floored me. As usual, buying a shirt from Sevenly will result in $7 going to their chosen charity of the week, which this week is End7, a charity dedicated to eliminating seven neglected tropical diseases by 2020, a lofty goal, but why aim low when you’re dealing with diseases?

You’d think it would be quite expensive protect children from seven different diseases, but it’s actually just 50c, and that’s not for one dose, that’s protection for a whole year, so your $7 will ensure that 14 kids don’t get “elephantiasis, river blindness, trachoma, snail fever, hookworm, whipworm and roundworm.” It’s amazing just how much of a difference such a small amount of money can make.

Also, the designs look great!

Sevenly have teamed up with Next Door (a charity fighting domestic abuse) to raise some money for their important work. As usual the designs are top notch, they seem to always have a solid line-up of designs over at Sevenly. $7 from each sale goes directly to the charity so if you like any of the designs then pick one up and feel better about yourself for helping someone out!

NRG 0272 480x722 MKNK Clothing Review : http://mknk.bigcartel.com/

Last week I was lucky enough to review a sample from MKNK Clothing! The tee arrived a pretty funky pizza box style packaging with some lovely cute freebies.

When I was first told about this site I hopped on their site to see what they were about.  I enjoyed the site, it’s clean, crisp and bold and all their designs have a flow as if they are part of a cohesive collection.

The designs are all pretty cool, with gaming, music and they are all on white tees. I think it works because it makes the designs pop.  The hoodies are on black and grey and they look awesome too. All the tees are guy fit but I’ve started just throwing them on with leggings, dead comfy! I particularly like this design called Bolt Dismay! All the designs are original, you won’t find anything like these anywhere else.

boltdismay 480x480 MKNK Clothing Review : http://mknk.bigcartel.com/

The quality of the tee I received was first class! It was an absolute joy to wear and I’m totally looking forward to wearing it in the summer with my bright yellow shorts! It also washed super well the print is still as perfect as it was pre wash.

MKNK have also have had some product shots done on models and they are very current and in touch with the young un’s of today. I would definitely be inclined to buy one of these tees or hoodies for my 16 year old brother and I know for a fact he would be happy to wear them.

Drop by their FB page https://www.facebook.com/mknkclothing and also they have a $5 discount code on the go until 30th of April : BUNNYHOP

You also get a cute paper toy to make up! Amazing idea! Haven’t made mine up yet but I am gonna!
