Engineered Garments Autumn/Winter 2014 Lookbook

September 1st, 2014

Fusing elements from a broad spectrum of influences including heritage workwear, military uniforms and archival sportswear, Engineered Garments is a certified favourite here at END. HQ and one of the most anticipated drops of the season.

Established in 1999 by legendary Japanese-design Daiki Suzuki, each Engineered Garments collection is a lesson in layering, channeling the phalanx of influences into some of the most innovative and captivating menswear on the planet.

Famed for his considered approach to fabrics, cuts and functionality, Suzuki professes the brand’s name came from a pattern maker who remarked that the clothing was ‘”more engineered than designed”.

Over the years Suzuki’s collection have become more refined, eschewing the rigid constrains of honestly replicating vintage silhouettes to create more contemporary, street-ready designs. Autumn/Winter 2014 is no different with classic cuts transformed with distinctive patterns, colours and materials all adding to the revered Engineered Garments aesthetic.

The Engineered Garments Autumn/Winter 2014 collection is due to land early September 2014. For more information, please email us at info@endclothing.co.uk.

Nike Air Trainer Huarache Premium

September 1st, 2014

Like the Flyknit, Flywire, and Air technologies proceeding it, the Nike Huarache platform was born in performance running and swiftly applied to other sport categories.

Designed under the lens of reduction, the Huarache platform was one of Nike’s earliest attempts to give athletes exactly what they need to perform and nothing more.

Twenty-three years after the debut of the Air Huarache, Nike Sportswear reintroduces shoes that combine the functionality of South American sandals and the fit of neoprene waterski boots – the Air Huarache Trainer.

Having successfully created a basketball rendition of the Huarache, legendary designers Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar set out to create a cross-training shoe as well. The upper utilised a similar exoskeleton-innersleeve combination — with one addition.

Recognising the need for superior lockdown during resistance training and aerobic activities, a mesh strap was added, giving birth to boundary-smashing performance footwear.

The minimalist design of the Huarache dramatically reduced weight and inspired a new generation of Nike footwear designers to create footwear stripped to only the necessary components for elite performance.

Release Information
Name: Nike Air Trainer Huarache Premium
Colour: White/Dark Emerald-Black-Medium Berry
Style Code: 647591-100
Launch Date: 4th September 2014

For AW14, Nigel Cabourn has returned to the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and authentic British Military apparel that has influenced a great deal of his work, celebrating artisan British craftsmanship with a selection of new designs and staple pieces.

Debuting some of the designs we first got to see during our visit to the Garden House earlier on this year, the collection is entirely produced in the UK, constructed from hand selected and exclusively developed fabrics.

Encompassing his carefully considered shirting, hand crafted knitwear and world renowned outerwear, the first drop from this seasons collection is full to the brim with new versions some of his much loved designs.

A design with as rich a history as the heroic individuals that inspired it, the Mallory Jacket received its current moniker after the body of George Mallory was finally recovered from the slopes of Everest after his ill fated final adventure and is back for AW14 in authentic Harris Tweed, celebrating the incredible craftsmanship found in the British Isles.

Another cult classic piece, the The Cameraman Jacket was worn by Wilfrid Noyce on his numerous photographing expeditions to Everest and the AW14 iteration keeps to the original design with an authentic Mackintosh fabric upper and a lower section made again from Harris Tweed.

Topping off the collection, the Everest Parka is back in its classic guise and in a new Oil Cloth make up, stuffed by hand with the highest grade goose down, while the collar is backed with thick sheepskin and the hood is trimmed with genuine coyote fur.

Online now, head to the Nigel Cabourn section now to explore the latest from this legendary British designer.

END. x Wood Wood Capsule Collection – A Closer Look

August 27th, 2014

The silent figure at the heart of every collaboration, the END. X Wood Wood capsule collection looks to celebrate that incredibly powerful symbol, the ‘X’.

‘X’ – The Roman numeral for 10, the international symbol for collaboration and in this rendering also a reference to the passage of time (hour glass / eternity symbol). The capsule riffs on that ubiquitous ‘X’ and resurrects a classic print from the Wood Wood archives. The collection celebrates both END.’s upcoming tenth anniversary and cements our longstanding relationship with the Danish brand.

“We have been working with END. since the beginning, and they have always been very supportive of our brand. Both companies have grown and evolved over the years, but we still maintain a strong relationship and we were happy to contribute to the 10-year anniversary celebrations. Lots of respect and congratulations from Copenhagen!” – Brian SS Jensen, W.W.

Comprising a range of classic Wood Wood styles, alongside a selection of new designs, the capsule collection touches on refined outerwear, contemporary shirting and jersey pieces with brand new graphics screen printed in Denmark.

The capsule collection launches online at 00:01am (BST) Saturday 30th August.
