Today we get a look at the visuals behind the superb Summer collection from the UK’s Enclave Apparel, titled ‘Same As Always’. Shot in a studio environment, the lookbook plays with the brand’s themes of noise, distortion and geometry whilst giving us a clean look at the whole collection.
Although it might be a lot to take in, I’ve included the full size images below, because I think this one is really worth seeing in all it’s glory. Enclave present a rather unorthodox take on the ‘lookbook’, shot by Luke J Wright, and it works perfectly, with the unusual props adding interest but not taking away from the visual impact of the shoot. The Same As Always collection sees Enclave take another step forward, including (alongside a healthy range of T-shirts) two button-up shirts, three pairs of shorts, and a duffel bag. The collection utilises camouglage and paisley patterns, the range of which can be found on the turn ups of each of the three pairs of Soleil Shorts – the olive/flecktarn standing out for me. The blue and grey chambray shirts, with contrasting shoulder yolk look great too, and I’m looking forward to getting a closer look.
With their tees, Enclave continue to stamp their own graphic identity, with clean and simple designs influenced by their unique inspirations. Stylistically they sit alongside those from PAM and Wood Wood, and I can see myself picking up the front/back print Column shirt, which is a great example. As for the collection’s title, it plays with the idea of originality, perhaps a little with the Jim Jarmusch quote “Nothing is original, steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination”, and is maybe even a slight dig at fellow UK brands… but we’ll leave that decision up to you.
