With a new year comes new SS//17 collections. The likes of Carhartt, Obey, Vans and Billionaire Boys Club have all dropped their latest offerings for Spring 17 – we give you the lowdown…
Famed for producing some of the highest quality coats, sweats and accessories, 2017 is proving to be no exception for Carhartt WIP, with the brand dropping some clean as a dream pieces in their Spring/Summer collection.
The likes of the Michigan Chore Coat (Top left) is already proving popular, with its all-over camo print and dearborn canvas giving the infamous chore coat an urban update.
While Carhartt have released some more technical pieces, they’ve also released some great wardrobe staples.
The classic Hooded Holbrook LT Sweatshirt stays true to the Carhartt ethos of keeping things simple but of the highest quality. Made to be a day-to-day essential, this hooded sweatshirt is made of a lightweight cotton, ensuring longevity and durability. Coming in a range of colours, we are sure that you’ll find one perfect for your layering coming into Spring.
The ‘off the wall’ brand celebrated 50 years at the top of the game in 2016, and they’ve now got their sights set on 2017.
The newest drop from Vans is a killer, not only have they released new colourways on some iconic shoes, but decided to hit us with the Authentic Chino; a classic trouser redesigned for everyday wear. In iconic Vans style, they’ve taken an original piece of clothing and tailored it to make it skate worthy; a poly elastane thread gives these a nice stretch whilst retaining shape and comfort.
A front runner in the street culture, Obey was founded in 2001 by Shepard Fairey, a street artist and illustrator; all of their pieces feature iconic designs that reverberate back to the founders artistic roots.
Obey have decided to release some awesome long sleeved tee’s just in time for Spring, making them perfect for layering.
The Lovers Long Sleeve (above) is a definite head turner. With a large graphic design printed on the back, its reminiscent of founder Shepard Fairey’s signature artwork. Made from a heavyweight cotton, this crewneck long sleeve is definitely made for comfort and layering.
Billionaire Boys Club
Another great brand dropping their Spring collection, Billionaire Boys Club is a prevalent street name; after being established in 2005 by Pharrell Williams the brand just seems to keep climbing the popularity ladder.
Following suit, BBC have come through with some top bits in their latest Spring ’17 release.
The Aviation Long Sleeve is no exception, with a variation of aviation style badges printed on the arms, it made for those who want to capitalise on the flight-club aesthetic that’s everywhere at the moment. It’s made from 100% cotton, too, so durability and comfort aren’t sacrificed at the expense of style
The S17 collection also features some out of this world pieces…
The Galaxy All-Over T-Shirt takes the classic BBC design spaceman, diamond & dollar insignia and brings them all together in one tee . Inscribing the front is the famous ‘Billionaire Boys Club’ script, the 100% cotton used guarantees a luxurious softness so you’re guaranteed both comfort and style.
