Five Post-Streetwear Brands You Should Keep an Eye on This Week

Uncovering brands that look to have a promising future.

By //Fashion 

In the landscape of fashion, success is more often than not measured by how much exposure a label receives. Yet we should not overlook the segment of brands that are carving out their own sector in the fashion realm with unique concepts that have yet to reach the masses. These labels constantly remain true to their original visions season after season, expressing their interpretations on style and existing in a space beyond what is considered “on-trend” and mainstream. We look to highlight these labels, uncovering why you should keep an eye on their upcoming seasonal offerings.

ALICE LAWRANCE XX

South Korean label ALICE LAWRANCE XX serves to represent the idea of post-modern streetwear with its unisex collections built upon memory and moods. The label began with simple expressive T-shirt ranges but recently branched out, launching its first full collection titled “new BEAT.” The 2017 spring/summer “new BEAT” collection is comprised of jackets, sweatshirts, shirts, T-shirts, trousers and caps that are designed around the idea of communicating uniqueness and individuality to the world. It is interesting to note that aside for functioning as a clothing label, ALICE LAWRANCE XX is also a cafe located in Seoul’s Hannam-Dong district. The cafe serves as something of a showroom for the label and exists to convey the ethos behind ALICE LAWRANCE XX.
