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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
