Manchester is now one of the go-to hubs for creativity in the U.K. Musically, the city has been spotlighting top-class talent across all genres, from rap — Hypebeast recommends Just Banco, Robin Knightz, and SVMI — to soul, with the likes of KSR and Victoria Jane showcasing the highest levels of emotionally-available music the U.K. has to offer. Creatively, you have Michael Adex’s Northern Quarterz hub: an agency that represents the best talent across musicians, magicians, and online personalities. Finally, Manchester’s fashion scene is thriving like never before. For example, Drama Call is using its uncouth marketing tactics flawlessly and Gramm is also preparing for its highly-anticipated comeback. However, one brand currently flying the Mancunian flag to the best of its ability is Clints and the label has just presented its latest “Cali Pack” collection for Fall/Winter 2022.
Quickly following up on the opening of the brand’s flagship store in Manchester — which was accompanied by a Boiler Room co-signed party — Clints’ “Cali Pack” collection appears to take inspiration from America’s ’90s hip-hop scene, thanks to Run D.M.C.’s oversized silhouettes, skate-ready attire, and durable work boots. The collection follows a purple theme throughout, with collection highlights being the heavyweight Track Set at 500 GSM. Designed with dropped shoulders and baggy bottoms, Clints branding is spread across the chest with a light blue outlining. A plaid shirt is also introduced coming fitted with quilted fabrications on its inside. Rounding off the collection, a “Grape” colored chequered shirt, stencil hoodie, cargo pants, headwear, and eight T-shirts will also be available.
