One of my favourite things about writing about brands from the UK is being able to watch them develop with every season, and grow in the quality and depth of their product range. Indcsn are nothing but a fine example that, as they release their Winter collection for 2011 and step it up another level.
Graphically, and garment-wise, it’s pretty simple, with three tees, a hood and a crewneck, alongside 6 beanies, and a few previously featured pieces of headwear – but a closer look reveals that it really is all in the details. With fleece manufactured in both Europe and Canada, tees made and printed in the US, and beanies hand made in Scotland, the collection is somewhat of a world tour of manufacture. A basic black/black logo tee is joined by the ‘People Will Rise’ T-shirt and crewneck, featuring a black and white photo print of Brixton Skatepark, and the Hermes & Aphrodite tee and zip hoody, with front and back print of the Greek gods.
The imagery below makes use of the brand’s recent collaboration with US brand Dertbag (the ‘KILL’ 5 panel), a relationship which looks set to continue into 2012, and their collaborative snapbacks with Leeds’ The Chimp Store, and also gives us a glimpse at their soon to be released button-down flannel shirts. Rounding the collection off are three ‘Kill Yourself’ beanies and three embroidered ‘Set It Off’ beanies, as shown in the final image.
With the attention placed firmly on the quality of each and every piece, this collection allows Indcsn to make an important step outside of UK streetwear, and see’s them compete on a global level – something I feel that unfortunately, many UK brands struggle to achieve. With a full range of caps (and the aforementioned button ups) to follow, the collection is available online from Indcsn now.
