Sheffield based XCVB present the lookbook for their Spring ’12 collection, shot in the delightful surroundings of an indoor adventure golf course and showcasing their collection of tees, vests, crewneck sweats and headwear.
The brand’s Spring collection references American sportswear, including teams like the Raiders and Grizzlies, and features a much stronger use of colour than previous ranges, with a number of bold prints. Of the designs, the Seven Hills on black is my favourite, with it’s Miami Vice-esque colour scheme, closely followed by the more reserved ‘Birdy’. While the Grizzlies and Raiders designs are well done, the brand have to be wary of simply re-interpreting regularly appearing team logos and following a trend which has become heavily saturated of late.
XCVB also present a range of colours in their ‘Arctic’ logo snapback, with a large, 3D-embroidered logo across the crown. Black and grey styles are available now, with more to follow shortly, alongside 5 panel caps, beanies, more tees, and a lightweight jacket in the second drop. On the whole, it’s a nice collection – I’m really feeling the quality of the prints, and the design work too – I’ll be keeping an eye on these guys for sure. Part one of the Spring collection is available now from XCVB, check it all out below.
