Where the runway meets the street

The Highsnobiety inboxes are inundated on a daily basis with new brands vying for a piece of the spotlight. So, to help you show off your vast knowledge of obscure fashion labels, each month we take a moment to introduce you to a fresh batch of upcoming talent.

Below, you’ll find some of the best collections to land in our inbox this month from Indonesian streetwear to high-spec Danish menswear. Get to know this diverse array of brands before they’re all massive.

If your label wants to be considered for future posts then, by all means, get in touch. Meanwhile, for more undiscovered talent, check out the rest of our Under the Radar series.

AA Spectrum

From: Beijing, China

In a Nutshell: High-spec, modern performance wear from Scandinavia.

Key Pieces: The brand’s billowing puffer jackets (filled with ethically-sourced down) and shaggy fleece zip-ups are big vibes for winter.

DOMESTIK

From: Indonesia

In a Nutshell: Graphic-heavy streetwear all the way from Indonesia, which seems like a hotbed of up-and-coming talent, based on the amount of dope Under the Radar submissions we’re getting from the country these days.

Key Pieces: All the brand’s tees are cop-worthy, and are available from legendary high fashion retailer Dover Street Market, as well.

Everest Isles

From: New York, USA

In a Nutshell: Responsibly produced gear made with sustainable fabrics, and a summer-ready palette. Many of the brand’s pieces sport clever technical features, like the shorts which can be neatly packed away into their own pockets.

Key Pieces: The breezy open-collared shirts and shorter-than-short swim shorts have got summer written all over them.

Hidden Mangroves

From: London, UK

In a Nutshell: More graphic-heavy streetwear, this time from the streets of the British capital.

Key Pieces: We’re big fans of the open-collared shirt covered in artist Lucas Dillon’s doodlings.

Les Incompétents

From: Montreal, Canada

In a Nutshell: First featured in Under the Radar a few seasons back, Canadian label Les Incompétents is back with more fashion-forward menswear.

Key Pieces: The reverse-zipped track pants are a witty reinterpretation of one of summer’s biggest (and best) trends.

Mardou & Dean

From: Oslo, Norway

In a Nutshell: One of Scandinavia’s hottest young labels, Mardou&Dean is back with another set of boundary-pushing men’s and women’s pieces, this time for the SS18 season.

Key Pieces: Those side-striped leather track pants are outrageously good, and the dip-dyed, oversized tees look perfect for spring flexing.

OH OK

From:  Cape Town, South Africa

In a Nutshell: Very dope, very orange streetwear from down in South Africa.

Key Pieces: The orange trucker jackets pack a strong punch, and there’s some equally strong tees available if you’re after something a little more low-key.
