Fresh out of the East end of Glasgow, Abandon Ship Apparel hit us with their Autumn/Winter collection of printed tees, crewnecks, and zip-up hoods. You may not be familiar with the name, but chances are you’ve seen one or two or their designs before.
The collection includes both tattoo-inspired art, and flips on pop culture iconography. If the model’s choice in permanent skin attire isn’t evidence enough, designs like those seen on the ‘Khamsa’ and ‘Dot’ tees are a clear nod to flash and tattoo art while ‘Up Yours’ and ‘Abandon Television’ see the brand take on Disney and MTV respectively. Many of the pieces you’ll see are available in other colours, with a palette of black, white, grey and maroon, and splashes of colour here and there. The collection is rounded off by crewneck sweats and the ‘Ingolstadt’ zip hood, which features an ‘up yours’ of it’s own on the reverse.
Founded in the first quarter of this year, ASA have been offering bold, straight to the point, no nonsense designs throughout 2011, and have built up a decent following for doing just that. The new collection is available now from Abandon Ship, check out the highlights below.
