We have a longstanding relationship with legendary British streetwear brand Addict here at Urban Industry. When we first opened our doors here in Eastbourne back in 2003, the guys at Addict were one of the first brands to grace our shelves and since then we’ve stuck with them. As with other domestic brands such as King Apparel, Addict very much laid the groundwork for UK streetwear. Their sheer longevity in the game is impressive enough before you even take into account some of the huge collaborations they’ve pulled off over the years. From huge brands such as Disney, Marvel and Star Wars to OG streetwear brands such as X-Large and Fuct, Addict have been there from the get-go and continue to impress with their high-profile collabs.
For this season, the guys at Addict have put together a brand timeline full of information and images going right back to the brand’s inception in 1996. It’s a great read and a real history lesson that all young brands should pay attention to. You can check out the full document online HERE
