South Wales’ Dark Nature Clothing today dropped their second release – titled 002 – consisting of two T-shirts, a crewneck sweat, and an embroidered maroon beanie, each displaying the brands clean and simple graphic style.
Triangles and circles are a running theme here, and appear in some form across all of the four pieces. The white tee and black crew feature the same ‘Trilapse’ logo printed large on the front, while the ‘Established’ tee takes the detail to the back, with ‘DN’ letters printed on the chest. The product also features the strapline ‘Southern Division Produce’ – a nod to the brand’s South Wales origins. The drop is completed by a simple embroidered beanie with the brand’s triangle logo stitched into the front, and as something a little different, 3 colours in a branded Dog Tag.
In their short existence, Dark Nature have built up a significant following. It’s clear to me, and I don’t mean this in a negative way, that as one of a ‘new breed’ of UK based streetwear brands, they’ve spent time absorbing information from brand’s the world over, educating themselves in order to produce well-rounded and well-promoted products. It’s nothing revolutionary, just simple, even ‘basic’ graphic design, and it won’t change the face of streetwear, but it will sell and in my mind it deserves to. The new collection is available from Dark Nature Clothing now, along with the collaborative FSTL Pocket Tees we mentioned last week. Check it out below.
