Jeremy Scott x Ksubi In-store this March!

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2009

20081030173114lh7.pngIn the later months of last year, the Brandish team began to see previews from the Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi denim collection.

Now, upon Lady Gaga wearing the orange love-heart suit in Sunday Times Style magazine, we are pleased to tell you that the line will be in-stores this March.

This is the fifth time the two labels have collaborated and as with previous collections, Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi 2009 toys with the idea of Scott’s brilliant, brash prints with the achingly cool shapes of Aussie-label Ksubi.

Trashbag Aesthetics have reported that the line will be released in shops in March and we have already begun sharpening our elbows!

The floral-print denim at left is the only menswear we have so far seen from the collection but those hardcore fashionistos will no doubt be rocking the woman’s Nu-Rave orange ASAP.

See after the jump for more pics!

Cassette Playa x Nike Blazer Hi

By admin on May 19th, 2008


Despite being branded a Nu-rave label, Cassette Playa have outgrown that fad and seem to only be getting stronger. With a collaboration with Uniqlo under their belt, they’re now teaming up with Nike to design a pair of Blazer Hi’s.

Made from patent leather, the colourway is certainly unique. I doubt many will have outfits to match, but that’s hardly the point with these limited edition trainers. The various colours on these trainers – ranging from apricot to purple – make these hard to work into an outfit, but I’d like to see anyone who could pull it off. They’re due out this summer and would be available in all your usual Sneakerfreaky places.

Durkl: Technicolor Team

By admin on December 27th, 2007

Durkl are a label who aren’t afraid of colour. Their collections come in a palette you could only call ‘acid’, or rather ‘aceeeeeed!’. T-shirts, caps and jeans come in any shade you like, so long as its neon.
The collection is quite Nu Rave-y but with a healthy dose of boyish rebellion thrown in: “You’ve got to fight. For your right. To parrrrr-ty” was going round my head as I viewed the collection.
One of their prints for the current season is this crooked rain print which comes in several different colourways, as amply illustrated by the above model. I like it.
Shop the collection on-line here.

New Judy Blame and Dave Baby Collection

By admin on December 12th, 2007


Stylist Judy Blame was part of Ray Petri’s hugely influential Buffalo movement, whose stark androgynous imagery defined late 80s/ early 90s London style and was recently rediscovered (and then seemingly forgotten again) by Nu Ravers.
Judy Blame created looks for Neneh Cherry amongst others, and has since then worked as creative consultant for Dior and Comme des Garçcons. He designs his own line which is available from Dover Street Market.
His new collaboration with Dave Baby is called London Bollocks (rude!) and is available only through Do Be Do. The range consists of t-shirts which bear post-punk statements like “War is stupid” or “No more suicides”.
I’m not completely convinced I get this Bad Penny T-shirt, but I like it nonetheless.

Pete Turner, king of ‘old rave’

By Isabelle on April 13th, 2007

If you’ve ever been out out clubbing in some of Brighton’s more mainstream clubs you’ll surely recognise this white-gloved septuagenarian. Pete Turner has been clubbing since the ’60s but is still going strong saying: "Things have changed
a lot since then, especially the music.
In my view, it has got better." In my days as a student I used to see him a fair bit, and the man never stops dancing; forget Mike from Spaced, Pete is the clubbing king:

"I love music. I love
dancing. The more hardcore the
better. I’m a bit like a Pringle – once
I bop, I just can’t stop."
