END. x Reebok Insta Pump Fury ‘Claret’

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

The Insta Pump Fury, an iconic sneaker from our youth, is a silhouette that has matured with age becoming a true footwear classic. It’s a shoe that looked like it was from the future when it was first released and 20 years on is now firmly regarded as a classic vintage style. The Insta Pump Fury, like a fine wine, is proof that things get better with age, hence the END. x Reebok Insta Pump Fury ‘Claret’.

“Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.” – Pope John XXIII

The END. x Reebok Insta Pump Fury ‘Claret’ will launch Saturday 15 March. Further information soon.

SOPHNET. & Uniform Experiment – Online Now.

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Now a staple of the END. brand roster, Japanese brands SOPHNET. and Uniform Experiment continue to push the boundaries, melding streetwear and classic menswear together into style that is undeniably theirs.

For Spring/Summer 2014, SOPHNET. continue to approach classic silhouettes, re-imagining them in their own minimal and distinctive style. SOPH focus particularly on variations of camouflage, applying this distinctive pattern inventively to a selection of shirts, knits and even outerwear.

Sister brand Uniform Experiment, designed in collaboration with Fragment Design’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, reinvents wardrobe staples such as Trench Coats and Crew Knits, upgrading each piece with a splash of colour and print. This approach gives each garments of breath of fresh air whilst still being subtle enough to work seamlessly with any ensemble.

Both collections are now available online, have a closer look by looking at the SOPHNET and Uniform Experiment sections of the website.

 

 

 

Maison Martin Margiela Spring ’14

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

One of the most iconic names in contemporary fashion, Maison Martin Margiela’s designs are understated and classically inspired, focussing on quality fabrics and premium construction, subtly styled with his trademark stitch motif. The first drop from the Belgian design house’s Spring ’14 collection spans several of his numbered collections, ranging from high end luggage through to printed jersey tees as well as the latest version of his hugely popular sneaker series.

As usual we’re hugely impressed by the quality of finish and attention to detail in the range, but we’ve come to expect nothing less from Margiela.


 

 

Adidas EQT Consortium Running Cushion OG

Monday, January 27th, 2014

When it was first released in the early 90’s, the EQT Cushion model was a response to the needs of everyday runners. With features that simply made sense, its silhouette was calculated and considered, from the asymmetrical collar for free ankle movement to the external heel counter that kept every step in check.

In celebration of this classic 90s running shoe, Adidas Consortium have reproduced the EQT Cushion in a faithful one-to-one reissue. Every aspect of the shoe has been reinstated from the textiles to the tech, with the minimal tonal upper, contrasted with the famous 3-stripes in the iconic Equipment colours. For fans of the original, it’s a long-awaited chance to grab an Equipment Series classic. For those less familiar, it’s a long overdue addition to Adidas already burgeoning archive.

Set to release at 00:01 GMT on Saturday 15th February this iconic runner is not one to be missed. For further information in the meantime, please email info@endclothing.co.uk or call +44 191 231 3983.


 

Pitti SS14

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Established in 1972, Pitti Immagine Uomo is one of the world’s most important platforms for menswear designers to debut their latest collections, ideas and projects.

Held at the Fortezza de Basso in Florence twice a year, the event was originally indeed to raise the profile of Italian designers but has now developed into one of the industry’s most anticipated events.

Although the event has gained much of its notoriety through the world of street style photography, with images of the event’s sartorially savvy participants flooding the media this time every year, Pitti is first and foremost an industry event and has become a key stop in the annual calendar for the buying team here at END.

Offering a first look at the collections for the coming year Pitti Uomo signals the start of the buying season and has become an important opportunity for our buyers to meet up with the people behind some of our most sought after brands.

2014 was another incredibly successful year for Pitti, with some very exciting collections from Nanamica, Yuketen and the inimitable Mark McNairy keeping our buyers busy.

Take a look at some of our buyers’ pictures from this year’s event below and get ready for their choices to launch online and in store throughout 2014 here at END.

Adidas Consortium x Sneaker Freaker Torsion Integral S

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Adidas Consortium’s latest release came as the result of a dinner meeting in Berlin where the two decided that their first co-branded project was long overdue. Based on the concept of ‘upover-downunder’ – in reference to Sneakler Freaker’s antipodean roots, the pack is based on the classic Torsion Integral, a 1992 runner that was produced for one year only before being archived for over two decades. Such a rare and revered silhouette seemed the ideal canvas for the Australian sneaker obsessives to work on, lending itself perfectly to the bold colourways of the release.

The ice green shoe was personally designed by Sneaker Freaker founder Woody, loosely based on their unofficial colour scheme. The starting point was a black midsole which can be fairly dominating, so this is splattered it with a fine mist of wintery white speckle. From there SF added layer-upon-layer of mint and cool grey, with a hit of Sneaker Freaker red in the Torsion bar, creating a deceptively simple and supremely balanced combination. The use of premium suede, nubuck and leather lead to exceptional results, with the ubiquitous dual branding of Consortium releases finishing the shoe off perfectly.

This limited release is set to drop at 00:01GMT on Saturday 21st December, for further information, email info@endclothing.co.uk or call +44 1941 231 3983.

Mackintosh – The Original British Raincoat

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Scotland’s Mackintosh is a brand so iconic that its name is now eponymous with all mid-length, waterproof jackets. However, none can boast the kind of history and quality that Mackintosh do.

Founded in 1823, Mackintosh pioneered the rubberised cotton that set their jackets apart, making them peerless when it came to keeping the weather out. Soon adopted as the jacket of choice for city gents and military officers alike, the “Mac” became a cornerstone in fashion history.

Today Mackintosh continue to be one of the most revered names in the ultra-competitive world of outerwear, updating iconic silhouettes in slimmed down contemporary cuts and bold, modern colours. Our latest delivery is a great example of this, with the Fetlar and Dunoon jackets updated in new shapes and colours. We reckon you’d struggle to find a better jacket – particular when it comes to dealing with the grim North Eastern weather – head over to our Mackintosh section now to have a look for yourself.
