Without wanting to sound too negative, there’s a lot of repetition in streetwear, and I find I see a lot of the same brands over and over again – that’s why it’s great when we get a drop of something a little less ‘well known’, but equally strong. The Fall season from Californians Us Versus Them is just that – a great selection of caps, tees, and fleece that really deserves recognition.
There’s a running theme of ‘biker’ style motifs this season, with patches inspired by cut-offs appearing on both tees and sweats, and you’ll also find the standard type variations on the brand’s logos, including the complex ‘Gilded’ piece which is a personal favourite. The lookbook for the season makes it all look so effortless – just a bunch of friends, socialising in their local surroundings, in the clothes they like to wear – they just happen to be really good clothes.
UVT are definitely one of my ‘ones to watch’ for the future, and you don’t have to look hard to see why. Check out the lookbook below, and head to Angry Daves to make a purchase.
