Brixton: Core Pieces & Seasonal Updates

Brixton: Core Pieces & Seasonal Updates | Flatspot

 

Capturing the energy and influences of skate, surf and music lifestyles combined with elements borrowed from traditional workwear and casual sportswear, the holiday ‘19 collection from Brixton is rich with seasonally appropriate clothing and accessory styles which have been made with a focus on longevity through styling and construction. Whether you opt for their heavy duty collared jackets or prefer the more relaxed pullover styles for casual comfort, throughout there are fine tuned details and high quality construction that matches the brands desire to create pieces that you’ll want to keep forever.

Whilst Brixton have developed a distinctive aesthetic that they continually fine tune each season, what they welcome and leave open to interpretation is how you choose to style each piece. Accompanied by a video series entitled ‘Threads’, which celebrates individual style “Done Proper” (never wrong, never right, always proper done, my way or your way, whatever) through interviews with the brand’s ambassadors and admired creatives such as tattoo artist and skater Dolan Stearns, model and photographer Nuria Val, the great Donta Hill and musician Benjamin Booker. Discussion turns to personal happiness and style evolution which is what Brixton are all about.

Autumnal tones of maize and maroon portray seasonal shades which can be found throughout the range against practical, insulating corduroy and soft heavyweight cotton fabrics. Seen most prominently on the multicoloured version of the Stowell VII International Hoodie which has a bold block design that highlights each segment of the silhouette with additional pops of navy and emerald green. A small tricoloured B emblem can be seen on the left side of the chest, coloured in tones of red, black and blue bringing a contemporary touch that can also seen on the Stowell 1/2 Zip Sweatshirt which has the graphic positioned centrally on the chest below a short zip fastening. Further experimentation with typography can be seen across the right sleeve of the black Stowell VII International Hoodie whilst bold varsity text has been layered on top of a slim vertical stripe pattern for the University International Hoodie for a textural finish that taps into vintage college sweater aesthetics.

Both the long and short sleeved Frigate T-Shirts sit within a range of relaxed regular fitting graphic tees made from soft, lightweight cotton. Bold ‘Brxtn’ lettering is incorporated within stylised ‘70s inspired screen printed artwork across the chest that continues along the arms of the long sleeve edition. Stripes are also utilized across the collection as seen on the Hilt Embroidered Knit Long Sleeve T-Shirt which has wide plum and cardinal coloured horizontal segments accentuated by slim white edges and decorative screen printed lines wrap around the forearms of the heather grey Stith Stripe International Crewneck Sweatshirt.

On the more structured side of the collection both the Cable Sherpa Jacket and Yard Sherpa Denim Jacket carry classic appeal through the use of robust fabrics and plush sherpa fleece linings that update classic workwear influenced silhouettes to be better suited to the colder months. Brass coloured fine wale corduroy has been selected for the outer of the Cable Sherpa Jacket and light shaping has been stitched across the body for subtle structure with small patch pockets on either side of the chest. For a more minimalistic look that includes a luxe leather patch on the left side of the front showing signature Brixton B shield branding, the Yard Sherpa Denim Jacket is constructed from 14-oz. 100% cotton raw indigo denim woven by Cone Denim, an innovative heritage company founded in 1891 and based in Northern California.

First recognised for their high quality vintage-inspired headwear styles, Brixton always offer a wide selection of caps to accompany their apparel each season and use only the best fabrics and construction methods to ensure a classic look that perfectly finishes any ensemble. Winter ‘19 welcomes the Gate II LP Cap which has a colour block design - as seen on the Stowell VII International Hoodie - which is embellished with a branded curved edge white leather patch on the centre front of the crown. Offering a more low-key look, both the denim B-Shield II Cap and the emerald B-Shield III Cap feature a small cut out leather shield emblem and have durable cotton mix 6-panel crowns secured by leather adjuster straps.

Continually inspired by their Californian surroundings, rich team of ambassadors and a love for punk rock music, Brixton have managed to retain authenticity through substantial growth and success since being founded in 2004.
