FASHION HAUL TIME! Over the last few months I've been venturing out into other brands besides what you find on the high street and sporting some new apparel from new brands around the UK who are all making some seriously nice threads! From graphic tee's & rad hats and all in between, I thought I'd share some of the brands that have grasped my attention recently & have had people asking "WHERE DID YOU BUY THAT!!!"
First up is, personal favourite of mine Lazy Oaf. Started back in 2001 with just a simple stall and a small range of mens t-shirt designs that had been hand screen printed.... this brand has came a long way & still look as good as ever! I first became aquatinted with Lazy Oaf back in my college days when I saw music artist Labrinth sporting one of their shirts and knew instantly I had to have it! Since then I've had a close eye on the brand and they keep making killer garments with funky themes and phresh illustrations, L.O. clearly have there finger on the pulse of what is hot & current. My latest investment and little early christmas present to myself was their Dirty Habits Hat.... See below!
Probably one of the best hats I've ever purchased, it fits like a glove, looks class and it constantly turning heads..... what more could you want & need from a hat. Sign of a good investment! Definitely should all go and check them out.... you will not be disappointed. With threads for men & women there is something for everyone! Links will be below if you want to check them out.
Next up are Hero&Cape! Starting back in 2011, I found these stylish folk on Instagram and I've been following them ever since! Hand designed and printed their t-shirt designs feel so unique and bespoke. Truly high quality work with super funky and fun designs. I'm never disappointed. There is always something to choose from..... sometimes too much! But luckily Hero&Cape do a lucky dip! Purchase a lucky dip you receive a random collection of three t-shirts for £30! which is a pretty good deal, also a nice surprise to open up! Really hope these guys take off and branch out to other pieces of design! Look forward to see where they go in 2015!
Last up is Company of Parrots (the online shop for It's Nice That). It's Nice That was founded back in 2007 and has truly taken off. Now producing its own magazine Printed Pages (Which is amazing!!!), their own Annual and now online shop. Attracting a strong and loyal readership, I.N.T. have a strong presence in the design community. It was through their blog that I stumbled across their online shop and in turn little line of apparel wear. With some nice graphic t-shirts and tote bags they produce some nice little gems. Design savvy and always looking great, their T-shirts are definitely a must have...... P.S they're having a sale on just now! TEE'S DOWN TO A FIVER!!!! GO GET BEFORE THEY ALL GO!!!!!
Hope you liked my little fashion haul. I'll be linking below to the companies sites etc. Go see and go buy... you will not be disappointed.
Happy Wednesday folks :)
