F-LAGSTUF-F‘s Spring/Summer 2021 collection is a blend of the Japanese brand’s signature elements, enmeshing street culture and skate style with activewear, militaria and elements of retro sportswear. This melting pot approach to design was abetted by a standout collaboration with photographer Gavin Watson, whose snapshots of an evolving British subculture grace a variety of lightweight layering pieces.

Watson lensed images of young skinheads in the ’70s and ’80s, before members of the all-inclusive, open-minded collective turned it towards racist far-right politics (i.e. National Front). Instead, Watson’s imagery showcases a group of fun-loving youngsters growing up just outside of London, binging on a mix of reggae and early punk music and making friends with likeminded youths.

Scenes of young skins in love, lip tattoos and even the full foreword to Watson’s Skins appear atop a track jacket, shirts and various T-shirts, all rendered in monochrome to match the film photographs. Co-branding mingles with those lengthy snippets of text sourced from the photographer’s books, but never shifts focus away from the imagery.

Expect the Gavin Watson gear to soon arrive at stockists like HBX and Goodhood.
