JANUARY'S BEST NEW DROPS
By Steven Potter, 21 January 2019
Feeling a little, mid-January? Yeah, us too, but don’t dwell on the lack of vitamin D and freezing temps because we’ve got three red-hot drops on the way from Polo Ralph Lauren, The North Face and streetwear brand . Expect a combo of bright hues and standout prints fit to banish those January blues with seriously results.
Polo Ralph Lauren
You can’t deny Polo Ralph Lauren’s status in the streetwear pantheon. Snow Beach, Sailing, CP-93 – cop-worthy picks are second nature to the US heritage brand. We’re heading back in time once more with the newest PRL line – The Great Outdoors, another result of a fruitful rummage in the archives. The main feature is the iconic Sportsmen Respect Wildlife logo, stamped across tees and camo sweatshirts. Just swerve wearing them on any muddy country hikes you’ve got planned, yeah?
The North Face
Outdoor enthusiasts The North Face have, as you might expect, gone all outdoorsy for their latest drop of logo tees. Also, for ultimate bragging rights, each piece is exclusive to ASOS, too. Stepping away from the minimal and iconic logo so readily adopted by streetwear aficionados, this newest crop makes use of bolder and more branding set against bright backdrops. Very 90s indeed. The graphic inspiration came from TNF’s own archives and, with retro logos tying in neatly with all the throwback trends currently doing the rounds, these pieces are hot-to-cop.
Pastel shades are basically spring in form, but there certainly isn’t anything wrong with the hues early. Thankfully, Bristol-based streetwear label has just dropped a crop of tees to see you through the rest of winter in style. The brand first burst onto the scene in 2012 and quickly gained mass appeal for its cuts and minimalist approach to branding. Talking of which, this fresh selection features embroidered logos, each with a slightly different vibe. Think of this release as a more understated approach to ’ that logo lifestyle.
