Cool new range from Anything Goes, a brand that have never been shy about selling more than just tees and hoodies. It’s hardly surprising to see a few hats in there since it is getting a bit chillier (thermal socks until March for me!), and it’s cool that the illustrations on the new clothing items generally follow from one piece to the next to help form a nice and cohesive collection.

Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk

by Andy on November 4, 2013

Tshirt3 480x478 Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk
Tshirt2 480x478 Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk
Tshirt1 480x478 Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk
Poster1 480x642 Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk
Popsicles 480x373 Some sweet tees from Frozen Junk
Frozen Junk is a clothing company based around popsicles and ice cream (basically anything sweet and cold), which would have seemed crazy 10 years ago but is totally natural now after Johnny Cupcakes (and a host of others) realised that people like food and people like t-shits so why shouldn’t those things be put together in a pleasing way.

I really like the style of the tees and it’s cool to see that they’re using some slightly unusual colourways in their launch range, there’s not a black tee amongst the bunch and I applaud that, especially with the way that it fits with the fun look of the brand.

Interestingly, whilst the shirts are listed as being $22 (and you can get 20% off with the coupon code launchcode) there’s a ‘name your own price’ deal going on, which may or may not just be because they launched recently. You can choose your own price all the way down to $8, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a ridiculous deal for tees that look this nice (and have some impressive design names behind them). There’s also free shipping if you spent $50 or more.

I know it’s wrong since this is HYA and I’m meant to be interested in clothes, but I think that one of the coolest things in this new collection from Rapanui is actually that backpack. It’s made from recycled sailing cloth from the Isle of Wight, where the brand is based. It’s also based on the circular economy idea and has a cool removable mat in it that is great if you’re having a picnic.

Beyond that, there’s a load of really cool t-shirt designs, and other stuff that I haven’t included above like bamboo socks, some trainers, loads of hoodies. It’s a big release, you should just probably head on over to check it out.

Project A head honcho Dualta has spent the past few months living in London (he does seem to get about a bit), but now that stage of his life is coming to an end and he’s moving back to Dublin. This change of location has influenced the Autumn collection as is explained below in the press release.

This Autumn/Fall 2013, Project A Apparel take a conceptual approach to its collection “home”. Inspired by their current upheaval between London and Dublin the brand expresses it’s continuing efforts to define home through a series of recurring images and simple staples all inspired by their past experiences. The pigeon, a constant within this collection and city life in general features heavily.

Our highlights include the military inflected white on white and black on black tees, the woollen football scarf and softer touches with the falling feathers button down shirt and black Harrington with silver feather zipper pull.

All are available from www.projectaapparel.com from the 25th of October.

It’s a solid collection with a nice variety of items, the scarf being especially unusual from an indie brand. I really like the creativity of the look book, of which you can see much more here, nice to see someone doing something different.

Even if I’d posted this one a few minutes after it went live a few nights ago at Seventh.Ink the box set would have already been sold out, so I don’t feel too guilty that you guys don’t have a chance to pick it up. There are still tees, silk-screened poster prints, and engraved coffin(!) available though, with the added bonus that the cat design glows in the dark on the tee and on paper, nice!

Shirts and prints are both $25 a piece.

7 years ago I started https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RICOandAURORA”>Livin’ Life!® as a side project, a means to escape some of the negativity in the world. I had no idea that so many of you would like my optimistic designs and relate to my positive outlook on life. I couldn’t be more grateful for the love and support from each of you to help me keep my dream alive. I am truly blessed. With your continued support, I have many more ideas that I hope to share with you in the coming years.

POSITIVE THINKING GREETING CARDS.
If you love our optimistic designs, now you can pass them on. These cards are shareable art, and the designs can provide the right words of encouragement and inspiration for a friend or loved one. Each card can be displayed nicely in a standard sized 5″ x 7″ picture frame (not included).

Andy: Greeting cards? Well, that’s certainly a first for HYA.

Akomplice’s first ever shoe release

MG 4649 2 480x320 Akomplices first ever shoe release
MG 4596 2 480x327 Akomplices first ever shoe release
MG 4593 2 480x326 Akomplices first ever shoe release

MG 4653 2 480x320 Akomplices first ever shoe release
MG 4652 2 480x320 Akomplices first ever shoe release
I don’t ever touch sneaker culture on the blog, but since this is Akomplice’s first ever shoe collaboration I thought that it was worth marking the occasion. Since this isn’t an area I know a lot about I think that the press release will be useful here:

Onitsuka Tiger x BAIT by Akomplice -

The Colorado Eighty-Five “6,200 FT”

To ring in their first anniversary, California based BAIT is dropping a special mockup of the Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 designed by Colorado natives, Akomplice. BAIT has long-been a staunch supporter of the Onitsuka Tiger and the Colorado 85 model in particular. When BAIT was afforded the opportunity to collaborate on the model they found it fitting to reach out to Akomplice, who hails from Colorado. Brothers, brand architects and natives of Colorado, Mike and Patrick Liberty were more than willing to infuse their Rocky Mountain roots into the Onitsuka Tiger model that bears their state’s name. The collaborative design is ripe with details that relate to Akomplice’s origins starting with the name 6,200 FT, which is the exact elevation of Mike and Patrick’s hometown of Carbondale, Colorado. The kick also sports braided hiking laces and reinforced ripstop panels, which are always apropos when drawing inspiration from the Rocky Mountains. The nods to Colorado continue to the color schematic of red, white, blue and yellow, which match the state flag and are representative of Colorado’s environmental features. Blue symbolizes clear blue Rocky Mountain skies, gold acknowledges the abundant Colorado sunshine, red represents Colorado’s red soil, and white symbolizes the snow on the mountains. The visual cues to the ski slopes of Colorado are not limited to the surface. Within the shoe, a ski map has been emblazoned on the in-sole and reappears on the back of the hangtag, which doubles as a lift ticket.

Akomplice’s foray into sneaker design is also BAIT’s most limited release to date, numbering just 504 pairs. The limited edition collaborative shoe will release in-store and online to coincide with BAIT’s 1 year anniversary party on Saturday, October 19th. If you’re looking to grab a pair, make sure to stop by BAIT in Diamond Bar, CA between October 14th-17th to secure a reservation ticket, which guarantees the right to purchase on 19th. If you’re not in the west coast, fear not, you can register on BAITme.com for a chance to get an email invitation to buy the shoes on BAITme.com. The Colorado Eighty-Five “6,200 FT” will be retailing at $109.99. Happy hunting.

Is it just me or does $109.99 seem pretty reasonable for a pair of collectable shoes? That there’s a raffle for the opportunity to buy them is quite funny to me though, being someone outside that culture.

The clothes are cool, that almost goes without saying when it comes to Akomplice, who dropped this latest collection yesterday, but it’s the lookbook concept and photographs that are blowing me away. They’ve taken their standard ‘cool guy on a white background’ photos that they usually take, and then pasted them all over Denver, and then taken cool photos of them. Really original stuff from AK.

Say hello to BÄAS Clothing

slide photo 8 1024x1024 Say hello to BÄAS Clothing
floraledit1 1024x1024 Say hello to BÄAS Clothing
BÄAS Clothing was setup last November by three guys at Loughborough Uni that somehow found out about HYA via a local pizza place, a pizza place that I’ve never ordered from (but keep intending to), so maybe I’m more famous in the local area than I realised!

Lots of logo designs here, which as ever I feel is a bit of a barrier to entry for a brand since you need people to like the logo and name rather than just thinking “hey, that’s a cool design” but there are lots of popular logo-driven companies out there so I’m not one say that it is the wrong approach, it might just make life a bit harder at first. I do really like the shirts with the big designs on the back, I’d quite like to see them with the big design on the front (which the floral A design is as a crew, and it works really well) but that’s just my personal taste and there does seem to be a bit of a trend in the UK for a pocket placement print on the front and going big on the back, so I suspect that this is just one of those cases where the youngsters are moving with the times and I’m getting a bit traditional as I edge closer to 30.

Hollow Clothing are prepping for something interesting that will be released next week, but to kick off the party early with this new backpack and a classy embroidered tee in a pleasing colourway. The backpack is £18.99 and the tee is £12.99, which is really reasonable, they could easily get away with charging a few quid more but instead they reward loyal customers, bravo! Oh, and there’s only half the bag stock remaining so if you want one you’d better hop on board the Hollow train.

Sure, it doesn’t really show off the clothing to their best, but it is a really cool concept for a photoshoot and has produced some great images that make me want to see more, which is precisely what a brand would want from a lookbook.

If there’s one thing that’s a rarity in the world of indie brands, it’s laptop cases, but I guess it does make sense to sell them and this range from a new mini collection from Labyrinth Clothing. They are 1-offs, but something tells me that if they’re popular there’s nothing to stop them becoming regular features in the shop. Be sure to check by their site too, it’s been given a really nice fresh new look.

Seashore Tote from Fairgoods [Submitted]

Hello!

My name is Shauna and I’m an Art Director at fairgoods.com.
Fairgoods is an online store that sells a curated selection of accessories, housewares, apparel, decor, and type (including goods made using type in both overt and subtle ways). Some of our products are things we’ve created with makers, some are things we’ve made ourselves, and some are existing products we love.
Fairgoods is about putting the maker at the forefront, and documenting the process of how things are made. It’s about letting our customers into the process, into the work itself — and celebrating it.

We wanted to share one of our new products with you: the Seashore Tote, made using type by Alejandro Paul. The tote and typeface are available as a bundle (http://www.fairgoods.com/products/seashore-bundle) and separately.

Andy: Pretty unusual for HYA to just post about a tote bag, but this is pretty cool!

Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand)

by Mr Four Fingers on August 8, 2013

Crook & Dagger

Ah, it’s always great to see brands going from  strength to strength and never settling but always burgeoning forward. Though this time the brand has moved forward, with a new name and a whole lot more punch. Back February at the Margin Trade Show we (Andy and Logan ) had the pleasure of meeting the guys behind Dr Popcorn Apparel but since then they have decided to change the name of their brand to Crook & Dagger as they felt their previous name was rather misleading and didn’t suit their ideals.

This was the right move. Now the gritty nature of their brand has a name that suits it. I was also pleased to see some bloody good photography, great looking models and shit hot lifestyle imagery which gives any brand, let alone a small independent  brand, a lot more kudos. They have also added some new designs, vests, tanks, sweaters (coming soon) and accessories like beanies and even a hoody for you little mutt.

CND16 2 2 480x671 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) E 480x320 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) B 480x320 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) CND188 2 480x671 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) CND13 2 480x671 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) I 480x320 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand)  burgundy beanie 2 2 480x671 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand) sid 2 480x671 Crook & Dagger (Dr Popcorn Apparel rebrand)

As far as I can tell every tee is £25 with free postage in the UK so if you are into gritty illustrations with the occasional smattering of dark humour then head over to Crook & Dagger and have a gander. Make sure to enter HYABOMB at checkout to receive a 10% discount.

Two cool new designs from Seventh.Ink based on the idea that “we humans tend to indulge in various “poisons” throughout our lives, both willingly and perhaps unwillingly. Our human nature makes us gravitate towards things that don’t always have our best interests in mind.. but nevertheless we continue to indulge in our favorite poisons.”

The designs aren’t just available as tee and tank tops, there’s also prints, engraved flasks, and engraved iPhone cases. Neat!
