Discover October 2022’s Coolest Stuff

I hope you’re all keeping well among the daily doom and gloom in the world. This month has been a very busy month for product drops and there’s been some stonkingly good ones that have caught my eye. This month is very much the month of brand collaborations. Dare I say now is a great time to make a start on your Christmas list? 

Timex Watches X Nigel Cabourn 

Following the huge success of previous collaborations, Timex Watches has introduced their newest collection with British menswear designer, Nigel Cabourn. The Desert Watch is the next iteration in a long-standing line of military inspired timepieces. It draws inspiration from the World War II era whilst continuing to provide the design and functionality to withstand any situation. The timepiece features a white military-style dial with army green markings and a broad arrow design synonymous with the Cabourn military branding. The neutral strap is made from Ventile cotton which is a natural barrier against destruction during inclement weather. Packaged in an iconic military-style carrying case, this timepiece is deserving of the past but stylised for today.

Baracuta X Engineered Garments 

Baracuta kicks off their AW22 season by joining forces with Engineered Garments, the iconic NYC brand founded by the Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki in New York in 1999. This is not the first time the two brands have worked together to create limited edition pieces. Baracuta and Engineered Garments are equally dedicated to making garments that become more personal through the experiences had while wearing them. They both value unique garment construction with attention to detail, meaning and hidden qualities behind each design. The relationship between the two brands is very deep, it is a relationship that stems from the knowledge of Suzuki and Baracuta which has been important and present in American culture throughout the years and has since adopted some distinctive traits from there. Through this, the two brands unite again, creating a bridge between England and America.

Champion X Percival Collection 

British menswear brand Percival have worked together with the iconic American sportswear apparel brand Champion to deliver an exclusive capsule collection that perfectly combines the philosophies of both brands. The selection is understated and contemporary, using muted tones across the collection that are brought to life by the embroidered design around the Champion logo. The collection marries perfectly together what make both brands such icons in their respective categories. Champion, widely regarded as the inventors of the hoodie, boast over a 100-year history of delivering stylish and practical sportswear pieces, and this is reflected in their collaboration with Percival. The pastel, subtle pink hoodie harks back to the traditions of the Champion brand yet has the personal aesthetics and subversive touch of Percival through the embroidered dandelions surrounding the logo. This theme of embroidery runs across the collection, with Koi carp depicted on the long sleeve black T-shirt, and octopi on the short sleeve white tee.

Admiral Sporting Goods Co. AW22 Campaign 

Admiral Sporting Goods Co. pays homage to its illustrious past by redesigning classic sportswear pieces. The AW22 collection accepts the summer season ending and autumnal colours starting to set in, similar to the last views of its namesake Admiral butterfly. The Admiral Butterfly is currently about to emerge from its chrysalis, having started life as a humble caterpillar, a process known as a transitional state. The collection was designed with a human transitional state in mind, the move from lockdown back towards an open outside world, combining that with a continuous focus on archival sporting pieces that offer comfort, durability and versatility. Throughout the collection there is a heavy focus on garment dying. Extensive research and development into ageing processes was carried out, leaving a range of garments with a true heritage sportswear look, whilst ensuring the quality and comfort of each piece is not compromised.
