Ace and Tate Sunglasses
We may be progressing towards winter, but everyone knows a pair of shades is always needed. British winters are notably chilly, but you can be often fooled by the glaring sun that degrades your retina and makes you instantly in need of a guide dog and braille. If you want to stay safe from the UV rays, go and grab yourself a pair of Ace and Tate glasses. Hailing from Holland, the label is beginning to infiltrate the eyewear industry, and make the overlooked accessory an essential completion to any outfit.
Utilising 3mm reflective embroidery, cosy cotton tees, and political slogans, Dead Night’s clothing is a bit of an essential for any layering this winter. All of their garms are discounted at the moment too, so you can snap up some of their hoodies for a mere £25.00, or prepare for next summer by copping some all over print shorts. With a feature from Highsnobiety as part of their ‘Under the radar’ series, it will only be a matter of time before they are hitting the shelves of retailers.
Featuring a few weeks ago in our ‘Just Discovered’ section, Assid is putting a unique stamp on the world of streetwear with their comedic collections and skate scene inspired garms. Their successes have grown since championing a stockist as famous as Dover Street Market, which has come before the boys have even been able to set up an online webshop. Their ‘Lassid’ tees and hoodies are some of my favourite pieces, emphasising their far from the serious aesthetic that has made fashionistas around the world appreciate their line.
We always like to support local, British brands at REPEAT, so when this label caught our eye we knew they would have to feature on this list. A striking font makes the lettering of their logo instantly recognisable and could make any item of clothing look cool. The slightly unsettling feel to their graphics is very intriguing, and their socks are some of the hardest on the market right now. Their overall look could be likened to Brain Dead, or maybe even Paradise Skateboards, which is a compliment of the highest form.
Human by Nature
Specialising in wavey self-made football shirts, Human By Nature is the Japanese brand developing their own take on the British mod style. Their lookbooks incorporate polished brogues, tucked in jerseys and oriental heritage graphics, which instantly distinguishes their aesthetic from others. As well as this, they place a heavy emphasis on skate style, and grainy 90s photography to portray their clothing. They are an all-round strong label, with affordable prices to suit the potential demand for their graphics.
As the most high-end label on the list, Daily Paper are favouring quality materials and patterns rather than obvious graphics and prints. Their matching utility vests and multi-pocket pants are very striking and made a real statement of intent in their FW18 collection. The season offered mainly stripes and tie-dye patterns, as well as vibrant sweaters and snakeskin coach jackets. They currently have a collab out with London-based brand ‘What We Wear’, which is another reason to go and check them out.
