It’s always nice to hear from the guys over at indcsn. Since I last spoke about them, the UK streetwear label has continued to go from strength to strength with a slew of capsules, collections and releases, and the brand now presents its ‘Fancy Goods’ collection for Fall/Winter 2014.
This season’s lookbook is shot entirely around indcsn’s hometown of Leeds, with photography handled by Giles Smith and UK hardcore band More Than Life’s Joey Bayes modeling the pieces. This season presents more of Indcsn’s hardcore-infused menswear and athletic pieces with some notable developments working into the mix.
Familiar elements from indcsn are reiterated in ‘Fancy Goods’, such as the brand’s sans-serif logo graphics and ‘tic tac toe’ motifs, combining with punk and hardcore cues as always to create a familiar taste of their rough and rugged style of streetwear.
The ‘indcsn athletic’ and ‘Disorder & Disarray’ sweatshirt graphics lay the groundwork of simple sports pieces, whilst pieces like ‘Dead End Youth’ and the ‘Mean Business Tee’ bring the punk stylization that the brand does so effectively, as well as riffing on a certain sportswear brand’s affection for big type graphics as well – ask Bo.
Beyond this we can also see some quality cut & sew such as a striped button-up and a shirt with what looks like a custom fabric print – no messing about, then. The collection is then rounded off with a staple coaches jacket, some caps and a peak at some accessories.
Overall, it’s a comfortable progression as always from one of the UK’s leading DIY streetwear labels, driven forwards as always by an eye for steady expansion and a genuine passion for the culture and lifestyle the brand aligns with. The straightforward nitty-gritty aesthetic of the lookbook stays true to the story of the brand so far and maintains its stake as an authentic window into the world of UK hardcore, skateboard and street culture.
indcsn’s ‘Fancy Goods’ collection releases today, August 21st, and is available directly from the indcsn website. The brand now also has stockists across Europe, the USA and beyond, so keep an eye out for pieces arriving at your spots over the next few weeks. Safe.
