So I’ve decided to keep this little series running, and will try to give some weekly updates on all things street wear. There really isn’t a day that goes by that there isn’t a new collaboration or label popping up somewhere. So from some of the most innovative of launches, to the downright odd, here’s a recap of the last week or so in street wear.
With a temporary retail space in LA’s Hall of Fame, 10Deep just dropped their exclusive collection to be featured there and on the 10Deep online store. Unless you fancy a simple down Berghaus vest, the brown leather down vest from 10Deep is the standout piece of the collection. They’ve also featured a camouflage shirt and a line of silk screen t-shirts, which I found to be rather daft.
Converse All-Star X Duck Boot:
With designers such as Jack Purcell and John Varvatos taking a stab at the All-Star, we’ve seen loads of reinterpretations of the Converse classic. One that caught my eye was a cool fusion of the Duck Boot with the Converse All Star Hi Top. Featuring a waterproof outer with a contrasting toe box and back overlay, the CT Duck Boot comes together to create a cool fusion of a waterproof boot and a sneaker. Generally I’m not a big fan of Duck Boots, but this was well done.
Mission Workshop drops a killer jacket:
There’s something very likable about boutique brands. They generally exude quality and workmanship, and there’s the assurance that you’ve picked up a unique piece. One of my recent favourites is the Orion Waterproof Jacket from San Francisco based Mission Workshop. It features a slim cut silhouette and fully taped seams. An internal iPod pocket and an external mobile phone pocket make this a very functional jacket. Available in both olive and black colourways.
