We’re really feeling the designs by THFKDLF, who we previously featured here on StreetwearBrands.com, so we didn’t need much of an excuse to feature them again. In this case, it was the teaser pics of their new socks that are launching soon that got us excited.

It’s great to see the Shropshire-based brand expanding their range, which currently includes unique tees, sweatshirts, 5-panel caps, and beanies for men and women, and we look forward to see what THFKDLF come out with in the future.

Buyers and press don’t have to wait much longer to see THFKDLF’s latest collection as they’ll be able to see the brand up-close at Margin, the London fashion tradeshow exhibition, which opens this Sunday and Monday, on the 4th & 5th of August 2013, at the new Margin venue in Olympia.

Renowned amongst key buyers and press as the launchpad for new brands, Margin has been providing an affordable platform for new brands since 2002, and can lay claim to launching Lazy Oaf, My Yard, Long, Ashley Marc Hovelle, Rum Knuckles, King Apparel, and Supremebeing, to name a very few.

THFKDLF will be making their global trade debut at Margin in August 2013 which takes place on the 4th & 5th, and you can find THFKDLF on Facebook here. For information about exhibiting at, or visiting, Margin, visit here.

Margin London Previews August 2013

With the August 2013 edition of Margin London fast approaching, the longest-running independent trade event in London has released the final batch of previews highlighting just some of the great new & emerging brands exhibiting at the tradeshow next week.

Taking place on the 4th & 5th August at their new venue location in Olympia, there’s a whole new batch of great looking labels that will be making their global debut at the exhibition alongside returning brands.

Margin London is an edited trade show which handpicks the best new brands launching for the season so buyers don’t have to waste time browsing large exhibition halls to hunt out exciting new brands to offer their shoppers something fresh. Margin curates the show to present the edit of the season from new, young and emerging UK and international brands, offering menswear, womenswear, accessories, designerwear, or streetwear.

Since the first edition in 2002, Margin has introduced many new brands to stores looking for a point of difference from the High Street, and can lay claim to launching Lazy Oaf, My Yard, Long, Ashley Marc Hovelle, Rum Knuckles, King Apparel, and Supremebeing, to name a very few.

Margin has also consistently been the jumping-off point for international brands looking to introduce their ranges to the UK and European market, such as Upper Playground, Ayame Socks, Loreak Mendian, Camo, Double Goose, Diamond Supply Co, and Stereo Sound Agency, who all made their UK tradeshow debuts at Margin London.

Margin is a trade event for industry only but we’ve spotlighted some of the streetwear brands that are exhibiting below for you.

Enjoy the sneak-peek of brands to look out for in stores near you soon.

Down The Rabbit Hole: Alice Takes a Trip

Alice Takes a Trip at Margin London

Created by two sisters, Alice takes a Trip delves into the darker side of Wonderland with their range of women’s and men’s clothing and accessories. Alice Takes a Trip have created their own trademark blend of cutesy, graphic, and gothic to create their own unique signature.

Most of the range is made locally in the UK with tees and sweatshirts hand-finished by the brand at their Sheffield base. Victorian dolls, fairy tales & myths inspire dresses, tops, and bags.

Alice takes a trip is now stocked in shops & boutiques worldwide, including Thunderegg, JuJu, and Fuse to name a few, and has become one of the top-selling brands on ASOS Marketplace, the extension of the regular ASOS site which lets indie brands sell direct to the public.

The new season’s range will be on display to buyers and press at Margin, the London trade exhibition,  in August 2013 at the new Margin venue in Olympia. Renowned amongst key buyers and press as the launchpad for new brands, Margin has been providing an affordable platform for new brands since 2002.

Alice Takes a Trip will be making their Margin debut in August 2013 which takes place on the 4th & 5th. For information about exhibiting at, or visiting, Margin, visit here.

Book Look: Out of Print Literary Tees

Book Look - Out of Print Literary Tees

One of our favourite brands, Brooklyn-based Out of Print, has released a new batch of literary tees for men and women, including classic titles such as The Naked Lunch, The Sun Also Rises, and On the Road.

Out of Print are unique innovators who were the first to reproduce classic book cover artwork onto tees, bags, iPhone & iPad cases, and stationery. There are numerous brands reprinting old album covers, recreating old tees, and generally recycling old designs, but Out of Print took a simple concept and made it their own.

Iconic covers, such as the instantly recognisable Clockwork Orange, make their way on to butter-soft tees with a vintage feel that quickly become worn-in wardrobe favourites for men and women.

Perhaps it’s the love of a favourite book or perhaps it’s the faux-intellectualism of pretending to have read a classic tome when you haven’t; either way the Out of Print range of classic book covers printed onto cotton tees, sweatshirts and tote bags, has proved a winning range that takes the typical rock-band tee to an erudite level.

In addition to producing great t-shirts, Out of Print have sent over 440,000 books to Africa, support youth literacy initiatives in the US, and supplied new books to Hurricane Sandy victims. Admirable work for a young brand whose charitable work contrasts with the self-aggrandising bravado of most streetwear labels.

Out of Print will be returning to exhibit their latest ranges to buyers and press at London trade exhibition Margin in August. Out of Print first made their European trade debut at Margin back in 2011 and have showcased at the event since.

Margin is the longest-running, and only, independent trade exhibition in London, and has been launching new brands since 2002.  Renowned amongst key buyers and press as the launchpad for new brands, Margin provides an affordable platform for new, young & emerging labels to meet with the fashion industry.

The next edition takes place on the 4th & 5th of August at a new venue for Margin, the Hilton Olympia, and is open to industry only. For European enquiries, contact Boy Parker Distribution.
