Labyrinth Clothing are trying something a bit different with this release, putting out one new item each week to it to get a bit more attention rather than getting lost amongst the crowd. Things are being kicked off with this rather appropriately-timed fall leaves long-sleeve tee. It’s available now for $26 and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s up next.

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.

Here’s something that I didn’t expect, Vespertine Machine, a brand that have been mentioned on HYA a lot, have changed their name to Raccoon Brand and seem to now sell clothing that only features raccoons. Is there anyone else that thinks this is quite a surprising change of direction for them?

The designs aren’t really to my personal taste, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with them. I’m genuinely interested to see where they take this since it does feel like such a departure from the previous iteration of the brand, can they really just keep making tees about Raccoons? Cats maybe, but Raccoons?

Last time we looked at Big Bad City they were yet another company going down the Kickstarter route to get their line off the ground. That was successfully completed and they now have shirts and some new designs up on general sale now. Shirts look good, it’s not a style that we see often on HYA, but they’re certainly interesting and wearable.

Shirts are £23 a piece plus postage, but HYA readers can get 10% off using the coupon code HIDEYOURARMS.

Cool new collection from Moloch Clothing , I really dig the botanical and bird shirts, those a are really nice and really wearable designs. I’m not sure if Microsoft would be too happy if they saw that sweatshirt though!

The tees have sine an upgrade from the last collection, they now use Continental N45 blanks which are made of 70% sustainable bamboo and 30% organic cotton. It’s a quality shirt that doesn’t lose it’s shape through washing (trust me, I have a lovely green blank from them) and feels good too.

Plastic and Stone collections from de Lirios

Spanish brand de Lirios released these two new collections a couple of weeks ago and there’s some really interesting and wearable stuff in there. The Stone collection appeals to me more than the Plastic collection, the patterned squares are just a bit to fashion-y for my tastes, whereas the prints suit my style. Prices range from €24 to €62 and it’s all available now.

Rapanui’s impressive A/W lineup

man wearing pocket print t shirt standing by the creek 480x320 Rapanuis impressive A/W lineup
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.

tumblr mv10kzyPLI1sllmoao1 1280 480x483 Project A Apparel bring it home with their Autumn collection
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.

2 black kai women 480x695 A/W13 from Mayamada is almost here, and its looking good (again)
Here’s something fun, when I went down to Margin back in August I got to meet the Mayamada team (and very nice they were too), but I also got to check out this range of designs, so I can give these the Andy seal of approval and they haven’t even been released yet since they’re on pre-order until October 21st (Monday). There’s some really cool designs in there, nice and wearable, and the print quality looked good when I was checking them out, so I think you can buy these tees and crew neck sweatshirts with confidence.

Mayamada will also be appearing in the ASOS marketplace from November so that should be good for their growth since ASOS is a really big player globally these days. Tees are £25 with sweatshirts weighing in at £35.

I always find it a bit uplifting when a brand releases a really positive collection, and this ‘Dream Chasers’ collection from Antisparkle does just that. Monique has put together some strong type-tees with positive messages that I think will resonate will all of us in the tee world trying to improve our businesses and achieve our own dreams rather than ‘working for the man’. It’s $25 for a regular tee, and $27 is you want the 3/4 sleeve.

I’m a little bit late posting this one so some of these might be sold out by the time you read this, but I thought it was worth pointing out these great new designs from Johnny Cupcakes, and it’s only the first half of the Halloween collection so if you miss out this time around you’ve got another chance later this month (I’d bet on a release this Friday, thoughts?).

Shortys 1 480x338 Shortys Skateboards x Akomplice Crossword t shirt
Shortys 4 480x316 Shortys Skateboards x Akomplice Crossword t shirt
Shortys Blue 480x413 Shortys Skateboards x Akomplice Crossword t shirt
Cool concept for a very wearable shirt design (also available as a crew neck), which interestingly they offer in both a regular and fashion fit, something I feel reflect the many demos that are attracted to Akomplice. Oh, and yes, you do get a custom branded Sharpie with your tee so you can fill in the crossword if you’d like. The shirt is $30 ($65 for the crewneck) and available now from the Akomplice webstore.

She Felt Geeky

by DeeHYA on October 4, 2013

geek1 480x720 She Felt Geeky

And now for something completely different! This is a fab etsy shop run by a lady I know loosely via the North East burlesque scene. T-shirts are not what the shop is about and it’s aimed pretty much entirely at the gal side of the population.

She Felt Geeky mostly specialises in super cute geek, comic, gaming, movie fabric panties amongst other things include pasties (nipple tassels) and some cute random one off pieces.

I don’t own any pieces personally but it means a lot for me to support local companies and from the reviews from friends I’ve heard the quality is absolutely first rate.

One selection of pieces that stand out for me when you land in the Etsy store are the Harry Potter, Hogwarts House panties. Here are the amazing Hufflepuff and Slytherin ones. How over the moon would any lady Harry Potter fan be with these! They’d be an excellent stocking filler for Christmas, and they look like they’d be super soft to the touch!

geek2 480x320 She Felt Geeky

geek3 480x320 She Felt Geeky

Amongst other geek factions you can grab Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Tattoo Print, Halloween Print, Super Cute Floral ones to name but a view! Store owner Miss Buttons also posted an image of this fabric a few days ago so you can totally get your hands some some spooky panties if that’s your bag!

She is super talented and approachable so if you had any requests or ideas I’m sure she would be extremely accommodating! I have to add her pasties are absolutely delightful but I’d better not put boobies on HYA!

I think of of my favourite pieces which is also extremely seasonal are these super cute Halloween panties! Snap them up people, support handmade and UK businesses! icon smile She Felt Geeky

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. See the press release after the jump:

Sometimes I’m just really lame when it comes to posting about brands that I like, because Domestic Sanity got in touch at the start of August and I’m only just posting them now, poor show Andy-man!

As ever, I’m impressed with the design quality on show at dsanity, and I’m sure that the attractive model in her underwear isn’t clouding my judgement at all. Seriously though, everything in the unisex ‘Of Money and Man‘ collection looks great with some really wearable designs. I like the ‘Suburban Camouflage‘ collection too, but with it being for the ladies it’s a bit harder for me to get excited about it.

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.

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.
