Mishka present to us another strong collection for Fall/Winter 2011. The collection transitions effortlessly into several iconic styles which have defined casual menswear over the last few seasons. Unlike it’s preppy range from around the same time last year, Mishka remains true to its roots as a streetwear brand with a greater focus on graphics and contrast. As always, the modeling comes courtesy of several underground musicians as chosen by photographer Steve Glashier.
Fall is almost upon us. Did Summer really happen? I feel like we were just trudging through freezing ice a couple weeks back and now our long summer nights and hot summer nights are almost gone. Did we do the most we possibly could with the time allotted us? If not don’t worry yourself because regrets are for chumps and improving is what winners do. Summer’s great and all but if you bungled your summer you can still tackle Autumn like a champ. Maybe you make up for sleeping through the Fourth of July by getting a headstart on your Halloween costume. Tomorrow can haunt you forever if you let or you can flip those table and haunt the future.
This Fall’s clothing line is one of our best. I’m not trying to toot our collective horn but that’s just how it is. There’s a big back to school theme with varsity, letterman and coaches’ jackets. We’ve got our regular assortment of fucking awesome plaid shirts made with our own custom plaids. We’re easing up on the fitteds but making a lot pretty strong snapbacks. We’ve got some new D.A.R.T. gear for those of you who don’t want to sacrifice looking sharp for the sake of clothes that are good for biking in. We’ve also got some rugby shirts and our knit soccer scarf for those of you who dig the English sports aesthetic.
Our Fall 2011 Lookbook was shot by Steve Glashier who used a bunch of English musicians for models. There’s CRIM3S (formerly Story of Isaac) who are a witchhousey duo and O Children who are more early 80s death rock sounding. Then there’s Plastician who you already know and Bok Bok from Night Slugs. There’s Darq. E Freeker who made that Cherry Ade song and also Redlight, Subscape, Tomb Crew, Roska, Peigh, Spooky from Oil Gang, Alix Perez and also Doorly. Also, there’s Rod Azlan the guy who emcees for Dub Police. All in a ll it’s a pretty dubby, grimey bunch.
Whether you’re headed back to school or wish you were, or are glad as fuck that you’re not, you’re going to want to get your hands on our Fall line. Sate your desires for just a little while longer by ogling our flashy new lookbook. Cheers!
