Brit brand Swallows & Daggers are back for 2012 with a bit of a refreshed image, choosing to ditch some of the more obvious tattoo-based designs in favour of a more accessible style, but which still stays true to their ink foundations.
Drop 1 includes 4 new T-shirt designs (each available in a couple of colours) designed by the likes of Clark Orr, Zach Shuta, and Matt Skiff, and I genuinely like them all. They all feature large single colour illustrations, each paired with a different tagline or slogan – the tattoo theme still running strong, but executed in a way that means it wouldn’t alienate anyone not normally a fan of the style.
The drop is completed by a simple, raglan cut zip-hood in navy or grey, with ‘DGRS’ text across the chest. I’m impressed with what the brand have put together, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more.
