Margin London at HideYourArms

by Margin London on December 17, 2012

Margin London at HideYourArms

Margin London has been kindly invited to contribute to HideYourArms. We’ll be posting some news about up-and-coming labels that will be exhibiting at Margin in February 2013, which takes place on the 10th & 11th, but firstly we think we should introduce ourselves.

Started back in 2002 as an affordable platform for new designers, Margin is the longest-running independent trade exhibition in London. The show presents designer women’s and men’s tailoring and accessories, as well as streetwear for men and women, to invited store buyers and press.

The humble tee has long been a starting point for numerous labels, and we’ve seen many an exhibitor start off with a t-shirt offering which has grown over the seasons to include a full range of clothing. Supremebeing, Lazy Oaf, Seventyseven, Dephect, YourEyesLie, and many others all started at Margin with tees before growing their stockist base and extending their range to include clothing, bags, jewellery (or jewelry for Americans!), and hats.

Margin has been providing a launchpad for brands to meet with key buyers and press for 10 years to date, and 2012 marked a decade of exhibitions.

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition 10 Year Book

To commemorate the occasion, a limited-edition 10 year book was printed for visitors to the show, but it’s also available to download as a PDF or as a super-interactive book for iPad. The iPad version features extensive galleries of previous seasons, as well as videos, and can be downloaded here.

Here’s the link to posts where HideYourArms mentions Margin including brand updates from when they last visited (well overdue for a revisit but Andy & the HideYourArms London correspondent are returning in February 2013!).

Margin is an intimate showroom exhibition in a white gallery space in the heart of Central London, and the only tradeshow in the UK where buyers and press can discover new & emerging design talent (most making their debut launch).  When we say “NEW”, we don’t just mean new to Margin, we mean brand-spanking, never-been-seen-before, new!

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition

Since the exhibitions first started back in 2002, Margin can lay claim to providing the successful trade launch-pad for many brands such as Chateau Roux, Your Eyes Lie, Supremebeing, Dephect, Emily & Fin, Miyson, 1 in a 100, Missmilne, Worn By, Ashley Marc Hovelle, Humdrum, Worn Free, Sugarhill, King Apparel, Terratag, Lazy Oaf, Famous Forever, and Ruby Rocks, as well as the UK launching point of overseas brands including Silas, Upper Playground, Tank Theory, Eastpak Apparel, Loreak Mendian, Syndrome, Al & Alicia, Gama-Go, Mimobots, Double Goose, Stereo Sound Agency, Diamond Supply Co, Urban Originals, and Uzi amongst many others.

Margin London at HideYourArmsMargin has welcomed key stores to the exhibitions since first launching in 2002; from online players like ASOS, My-Wardrobe, and Urban Industry; multiples such as Ark, Joy, Beams, and Ships; department stores, such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Liberty, House of Fraser, Psyche, Fenwick, El Corte Ingles, Galleries Lafayette, & Engelhorn Trendhaus; as well as the key independents Margin is renowned for, including Colette, Hip, Sakis, Wood, Royal Cheese, Natterjacks, 290sqm, Coggles, Market, Atoo, My Yard, Donuts, Caliroots, and Get Cutie, to name a few.

Margin has welcomed numerous stylists and fashion editors from magazines including Vogue, Wad, Elle, Wallpaper, Arena, i-D, FHM, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Vice, DJ, Flux, WWD, Drapers, Sportswear International, and Sport & Street; as well as contributors from directional blogs such as BNTL, Coolhunting, Hypequest, Slamxhype, Hypebeast, and, of course, Hideyourarms.

supremebeing lost worlds





I think that we can all agree that these tees are pretty freakin’ sweet. At £30 for a tee Supremebeing are rather pricier than shirts you usually find me writing about, but they’re a premium brand, that’s what premium brands charge, and you can pay more for a worse tee on most British high streets.

ss'12 supremebeing t-shirts






These Supremebeing shirts at Street Casuals are a bit of a departure from the usual HYA fayre of printed graphics, but I quite like the change. There’s lots of strong and bold colourways here that I think would look really good being paired up with a lightly more muted top layer like a darker jakcet or zip up hoodie. Also in this release from Supremebeing is a couple hats and a few sweaters & light jackets but the tees looked the most interesting to me and this post had more than enough pictures in already anyway. If you’re looking to pick up a tee you’ll be spending £30, which does seem like quite a lot to me, but then again I haven’t paid for a t-shirt for a few years now so my perceptions of value are slightly warped.

SupremeBeing A/W11 Lookbook Slideshow Video

by Andy on August 18, 2011


Impressive stuff, cool music too. Did any of my fellow Brits catch Concrete Circus on Channel 4 this week? Supremebeing got quite a lot of air time during that, which made a lot of sense considering the incredible feats of the athletes in the show (it was about making viral videos for freerunners, parkour, skating, BMX, that kind of thing). I found the whole show on 4od’s Youtube channel but can’t find it now, still search for Concrete Circus on Youtube and you’ll find the best bits anyway.

Win 6 t-shirts from Supremebeing

by Andy on July 5, 2011

supremebeing competition

It’s competition time again (they seem to be coming thick & fast at the moment!). I’ve teamed up with Supremebeing, one of Britain’s top streetwear labels, to give away six (6!) t-shirts to one very lucky HYA reader. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is tweet the following:

I think that @Supremebeingltd & @hideyourarms should let me choose three t-shirts now and three more when aw11 drops in their #giveaway

As you can see the winner will receive 3 shirts of their choice from the current Spring/Summer range when the competition ends, and then in August they will again get to choose three t-shirts. The competition will be running on Twitter from now until midnight GMT next Tuesday (July 12th), as far as I am aware there is no geographical restriction on this so anyone can enter, and there is one entry per person, though if you would like to send out the tweet more than once I would very much appreciate it. Now get tweeting!

I really like the colourway, and I really like the graphic, so I guess you could say that I like this shirt.

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109

After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

Now that’s a long title!

I know that I’m showing you this hoodie with the ‘sketch’ side showing, but I actually prefer it with the black side showing and the sketch providing a nice bit of contrast on the hood lining, but I figured that it would look a bit boring in the picture, and the allover sketch print is really cool. It is a bit of a pity that the print is a pattern, I think this piece might have benefitted from being different all over and not having any repeating characters, it certainly would have been more interesting.

Details and inside-out in the gallery.

I can’t lie (and that’s a fact, I’m a terrible liar), these hoodies from Urban Retro aren’t mad-cheap, but they do have some significant savings on their original prices (up to 40%), £15-£20 off seems to be about normal. Brands available include Supremebeing, King Apparel, SeventySeven, and there’s a couple by Joystick Junkies too.

That isn’t a typo in the title there, Urban Retro have indeed added two hundred new designs to their store, from brands like Beautiful/Decay, Terratag, Junk Food, Wrongwroks, Seventyseven, and Supremebeing. Urban Retro are really turning into one of my favourite stores in the UK, and not just because they’re pretty liberal with their coupon codes. If you want to get 10% off your order just enter the coupon code SUMMER2008 at the checkout to be eligible for the discount. The coupon code is valid until the end of July.
