The SS18 collection from Gola is one that is true to it's history with the vibrant colour palette of a real Spring Summer collection. Modernising old-school sportswear to create a high quality and aesthetically pleasing range of garments. The collection includes classic sweaters, hoodies, track bottoms and track jackets, which are perfect for the fashion-conscious as well as the seasoned casuals. 

Gola's SS18 collection can be found in the following selected retailers:
  • ASOS

Industry brands are taking the mantle for selling and distribution in the UK and had the below to say on the brand:

We at Industry Brands are very excited to be working with Gola. 

"Gola builds on its British sporting heritage to offer product that is authentic and original, remaining true to it's roots. As a brand it doesn't try too hard, it's not pretentious and it's not contrived, it's purely hardworking, loyal and genuine. Anyone buying into Gola should feel like they're buying a snippet of British nostalgia with a modern twist,"

Landlord x Novesta Collaboration






LANDLORD X NOVESTA 

One of the best-loved and most popular brands throughout Europe, Novesta, has teamed up with LANDLORD a brand that was made in New York in 2016 and focuses on mixing luxury and streetwear together. 

LANDLORD's iconic feature is sport and contemporary casuals based on military tastes and has been inspired by the likes of Dennis Rodman (American Professional Basketball Player), Joseph Beuys, Southern Hip Hop and Mauri. 

Novesta like LANDLORD is famous for the background of military supply production since it's foundation historically. Because of the uniqueness of Novesta's sneakers, which pair imaginative designs with timeless sophistication, Novesta tend to only work with brands that they have something in common with them (whether this be nature, history and tastes etc). The collaboration between Novesta and LANDLORD makes perfect sense as they both have an angle of military supply production and because of this the two aimed at making pairs of new military trainers for the Spring Summer 2018 with the textile being developed by LANDLORD and the project and production being run by Novesta. 

The trainer's cost $320.00 (£232.86) and are stocked at LANDLORD's stockists: Barney's, Opening Ceremony, SSENSE and trendy boutiques in Japan.

Star Wars x Bata Heritage Collection



STAR WARS ICONS SHOWCASED ON BATA BULLETS AND BATA TENNIS

For Spring/Summer 2018, Bata showcases iconic Star Wars characters on a capsule collection of Bata Bullets and Bata Tennis. "The retro feel of the original Star Wars by George Lucas was the starting point of the collaboration, as it echoes the legacy of Bata, a company started in 1894 that still produces its iconic styles today," says Charles Pignal, Group Heritage Director. 






Originally created in 1964 to shoe the Baltimore Bullets basketball team, the Bata Bullets was discontinued in the mid-70's and relaunched in 2016 as a testament to the brand's value of endurance. For this collaboration, the Bullets come in high-tops versions in black or white canvas, with red or blue 'Star Wars' rubber patch on the side and matching piping around the shoe as well as top eyelet. The iconic light saber from the movie is featured at the back of the sneaker, which is lined with an allover pattern that is the combination of the Light Side and Dark Side of the Force symbols. 

The first Bata Tennis shoe has been manufactured since 1936 in India for school children to wear for their Physical Education classes and continues today to be one of the brand's best selling-shoe. For SS18, the low-top version has been revamped with tricoloured graphics of Darth Vader, R2D2 and the Storm Trooper. Both Vader and the Trooper's drawings are available in white, black and grey, while R2D2 comes in a fresh white, blue and grey combination. 

The Star Wars x Bata heritage SS18 capsule will be made available in a specially curated pop-up store in Singapore at ION ORCHARD, B4 from Fri, 4 May - Sun, 6 May 2018, 11am - 9pm.

The collection is only available for customers in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Philippines via selected Bata stores and the ION Pop-up event. The collection will also be available online at https://bataheritage.com on the same day.

New In Store – Introducing Look Mate London’s Latest Sock Collaborationwith Architects SoHo+Co


New In Store – Introducing Look Mate London’s Latest Sock Collaboration with Architects SoHo+Co
This month innovative sock label Look Mate London join forces with London based architecture and design studio SoHo+Co for their latest sock pairing.

The multiple award winning practice SoHo+Co is rooted in the ambiguous, between cultures, scales and disciplines.  Their work offers space for delight through offering unscripted, blurred edges and meanings where human interpretation and interaction completes the landscape.  

Internationally recognised for the creation of the Japanese inspired Moon Garden in East London and their work on Centre Point and the new Maggie's cancer caring centre in Oldham, duo Tom Holberton and Jasmin Sohi’s first ever sock design draws on their unique philosophy for their striking ‘Meles Meles’ socks, so named after the Latin name for the badger.

An exciting new addition to Look Mate’s sock portfolio for men and women, these architectural socks are designed with proportion and precision referencing the white stripe on the badger’s forehead.  SoHo+Co describe their socks “As the antidote to pattern, these badger socks playfully tease with the ambiguous.  Bold, monochromatic and abstract, they might just become nocturnal woodland animals on your feet.” 

Founded in 2015, Look Mate London’s ethos is to offer “Exquisite socks designed collaboratively” and each and every pair of socks is produced to high standards of craftsmanship from organic combed cotton by second-generation sock makers in Armenia.  To purchase the new ‘Meles Meles’ socks visit Look Mate’s e-commerce store at www.lookmate.co.
