Today British brand indcsn hit us with the first part of their Spring collection, which I’ve been heavily anticipating since initial previews started to appear on tumblr and instagram earlier this year. I’ve long been an advocate of what indcsn do, and their new collection hasn’t let me down.
The first delivery consists mainly of T-shirts, snapbacks, and the brand’s much admired 5 panel caps. The three woolen Team camp caps, with floral cotton peaks have gotten most of the attention so far, but I’m personally more intrigued by the water resistant, duck cotton make-ups in tan and navy. The 5 panels are joined by three two-tone snapbacks, each featuring a different artwork, based on original tattoo flash by Sam Layzell, on the front..
As for clothing, there are four tee designs and a black coaches jacket. The black Gentleman’s Standard tee features a monogram design on the chest pocket and screen-print on the back, matching the design of the coaches jacket, while the other three tees feature large chest prints, including The Clash referencing ‘City Rockers’, and the political themed ‘A Little Knowledge’ tee. I think these are some of the strongest indcsn designs to date, with the brand clearly starting to carve their own, individual graphic identity.
The collection is finished off with a handful of accessories, including a lighter and sticker pack. Over all, I’m pretty impressed by how it’s all turned out – indcsn are really starting to look like a brand that can and will compete outside of the ‘UK streetwear’ market, and the cut & sew portion of the line which is set to follow shortly will only strengthen that. The collection, which you can view in full below, is available online from indcsn now, and from select stockists including The Chimp Store, Fat Buddha, and Urban Industry.
