Mami Wata Shirt
One of the defining style moments of 2018, Black Panther is responsible for igniting new interest in African clothing and culture; meanwhile, surf and skatewear brands remain some of the most in-demand on the planet. Mami Wata is what happens when these two seismic fashion forces become one, with bold patterns applied to laid back beach-ready pieces.
Dr Martens x Rick Griffin 1460 Boots
British footwear brand and counter culture icon Dr Martens has dipped into the work of famed Californian artist Rick Griffin for a psychedelic embellishing of the classic 1460 boot.

Levi’s Engineered 512 Jeans
Levi’s bamboozled the fashion world back in 1999 when it released what most assumed was a manufacturing defect. Twenty years on, the brand’s now infamous twisted seam jeans are on shelves once more, re-released in new cuts, colours and updated with modern features like a four-way stretch fabric.

Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision

Tommy Sport Tapered Joggers

The North Face 92 Rage Fleece

It’s all the retro goodness you can expect to be clogging up your Instagram feed in the coming months.
