Introducing: Nicce Clothing
With a CV that includes car part distribution, app development and property renovation, Mitchel Galvin-Farnol had a pretty diverse career path before setting up streetwear label Nicce.
Founded in 2013 on his arrival back in London, Mitchel decided to launch the brand with a few friends who all met while working a season in Ibiza. “I’ve never really worked for anyone and I wanted to be doing my own thing, with my friends around me,” he explains. “Our background hobbies were tech development and house music. I wanted to be involved in something similar, but didn’t want to be a DJ. Fashion and music go hand in hand.”.
Subtle, sophisticated, print heavy with cut-and-sew detailing, the range is inspired by the uniform of La Isla Blanca. Statement pieces that work with anything and sit perfectly in an off-duty wardrobe. “It’s simple, no-fuss design for your typical house kids,” says Mitchel.
For autumn/winter 2014, Nicce have pushed forwards. Introducing parkas, jackets and knitted beanies alongside their classic tees and sweatshirts, the label have created a full capsule for their most recent collection.
With stockists already including Topman, The Idle Man and Footasylum, alongside their new flagship in Shoreditch’s Boxpark, the label is rapidly building. And with “a seriously strong women’s collection and a few cheeky collaborations” – even if Mitchel does say so himself – coming in 2015, they’re definitely a brand to keep your eye on.
