Brixton: Core Pieces & Seasonal Updates

Brixton: Core Pieces & Seasonal Updates | Flatspot

 

“Never wrong never right always proper done my way or your way whatever”. The Fall ‘19 collection from Brixton harnesses their design personality which combines punk rock musical influences, with a desire to create clothing that you’ll want to wear forever. Premium fabrics, garment washes and custom colours have been selected for a distinctive lived-in feel that is elevated by high quality construction methods and confident text graphics. Entitled ‘Done Proper’ the selection has been crafted for the independent thinkers, makers and doers.

Based in Oceanside, California each season Brixton looks to ongoing international influences from music, surf and skate culture as well as the cluster of energy closer to home. Reflected in their name - taken from The Clash’s 1979 track The Guns of Brixton - and aesthetic that counteracts stereotypes to offer a clean and timeless aesthetic which appeals to any genre of musicians or music fans. Alongside their forever classics, the new season welcomes a fresh selection of casual, everyday silhouettes enhanced by a muted colour palette of brown, heather grey, olive and emerald green with additional pops of yellow, red and burnt orange which brings additional warmth to styles suited to the colder months.

This season favours stripes and a strong selection of variations portray Brixton’s own take on the versatile print. Seen across new arrivals such as the Hilt Embroidered Knit T-Shirt, a two tone woven stripe pattern runs vertically around the body and neat embroidery of abbreviated Brixton lettering results in a stand out effect. Opting for a more subtle aesthetic, the heather grey Stith VI Hoodie features white and navy fabric inserts along the top edge of the raglan shaped sleeves with stylised ‘Brxtn’ lettering positioned centrally on the chest, stitched in a matching tone of blue.

Continually refreshing wardrobe staples with an experimental approach, an array of alternative Brixton graphic logos are included within each season and showcase ongoing explorations within their own identity. Reminiscent of vintage baseball caps, the Stith, Wheeler and Spring designs feature script lettering positioned centrally on their 6-panel crowns, whereas the Stowell VI Short Sleeve T-Shirts and Stowell VIII Long Sleeve T-Shirts are more contemporary with bold ‘Brixton Company’ lettering rotated to 90 degrees and a tricolour ‘B’ emblem above.

Tapping into their more street and sportswear inspired side, the medium weight Dimension 1/2 Zip Sweatshirt has a split colour aesthetic with a quarter zip raised collar neckline that is reminiscent of classic warm up styles. Enhanced by the grey and black colourway, large ‘Brixon’ lettering has been printed across the upper side of the chest with a vertical striped fill that ties in with the decorative ribbed trim of the Stowell IV International Hoodie and Crewneck styles.

After two years of hustling alongside their day jobs, Brixton was launched by David Stoddard, Jason Young and Mike Chapin in 2004 with a vision for creating collections of clean and ageless apparel and accessories. Launching the label with vintage inspired headwear that they wanted but couldn’t find on the market, the brand is still known for the quality and style of their cut and sew caps, fedoras and beanies. Continually providing us with considered, wearable everyday favourites each season, the slow but sure progression of the brand has been imminent to its success, second to their genuine passion and love for supporting communities of like minded individuals that are universally united through music.
