Garbstore coming soon to Urban Industry

February 12, 2014

Ahead of the first collection dropping at Urban Industry soon, today we take a look at the new offerings from London’s Garbstore and their ‘Indoor Cavalry’ Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook. The premium menswear brand has been on our radar now for some time and we’re delighted to add another homegrown brand to our ever-expanding roster. Founded by British designer Ian Paley (whose previous experience in the fashion industry comes from working with the likes of Paul Smith, Burberry and Levi’s), Garbstore came about after his first experiment with co-founding One True Saxon ran its course. For more information on Ian and his brand, it’s worth checking out the feature piece Glenn Kitson and Mark Smith did with him for Manufacture back in 2012 HERE

The Garbstore label’s philisophy “is richly ensconced in the history of clothing produced after the Second World War and draws influence from what can be coined "Unfamiliar Vintage", familiar garments that reference the past but with a modern edge. For example jeans and trousers are tailored with fifties grip tape, all buttons are Tri-hole and sweats and tees follow vintage models. In essence pieces are re-imagined and made "historically new"". Look for the first drop of Garbstore to arrive at Urban Industry any day now. Stay tuned to our FACEBOOK and TWITTER pages for more updates as and when we get them
