Uniformes Generale have been quietly working away for some time now, building up to this week’s big launch of their debut collection.
The brand’s first release is a combination of printed tees and some unique cut & see products which make things all the more interesting. It features 3 pieces of outerwear, starting with the impressive Flux Capacitor – a combination of showerproof ripstop nylon and vintage laundered cotton, borg lined and finished with real leather and shock cord detailing for a fully kitted out piece of outerwear. This is followed by the lovely quilted Typhoon Bomber – a take on the classic MA-1 in heavy duty nylon – and the Genesis Puffa – a classic funnel neck puffer jacket, fully down filled with a stow-away hood.
The collection also features an impressive selection of fleece including the Down Lined Hoodie – a great piece which combines the classic zip-hood with the benefits of a down filled jacket in its lightweight kite fabric inner, complete with dual-hoods. The grey option below with contrasting yellow liner is my personal highlight, but the piece is also available in black and indigo colour options alongside standard zip-hoods, custom marl fabric and chenille logo crewnecks
Graphic-wise the brand have enlisted the help of illustrator Ben Lamb who lends his talents to a number of designs on some clean white tees. You’ll also find two heavyeight jersey pocket tees with discharge printed text to round out the selection.
The brand will also host a week-long pop-up at Boxpark starting tomorrow (and running until Sunday) where you’ll be able to get a closer look at all of the new products and walk out with a few purchases. This is as impressive as debut collections come and there are loads more details to be discovered.
I highly reccoment you pay Uniformes Generale a visit for a further look at the new collection and the attention to detail of each piece. You can check out a brief selection of some of the highlights below.
