Birmingham’s Dark Circle present the lookbook for their Winter 2014/2015 collection.
The lookbook is kept relatively simple, relying on really nice lighting and good styling to allow the clothes to do their thing. We all like to see a lookbook that puts the clothes in situ, just as much as we like a good lookbook that keeps it simple in the studio, but I also appreciate a lookbook like this, which looks themed, but simply isn’t. It’s engaging to look at, but doesn’t beg some epic story.
As for the collection, the brand bring a mix of T-shirts, hoodies, crewnecks, button down Oxford shirts, headwear and a US made Ebbets collaborative jacket. The Ebbets jackets seem to be getting a strong amount of love from Birmingham’s start-up brands, with Note Apparel also doing their thing with one recently (see here).
As with a lot of Dark Circle’s recent drops, the collection is typography heavy, and it’s something we like, giving the clothing a clean and effective aesthetic.
The Winter 14/15 collection is available exclusively via the Dark Circle website.
