Most streetwear brands survive on hype these days. Super-limited stock with hyped lookbooks and celebrity gifting is the blueprint, and it’s been proven time and time again to work a charm. While we’ve got nothing against this approach — we’re part of the process — it’s always refreshing to see a label that cultivates hype without any of these tactics. Cav Empt, for example.
At Cav Empt, the clothes speak for themselves. There aren’t glossy campaigns around your city or a viral Instagram presence, just streetwear for those who love it. The Japan-based label revolves around enigmatic slogans, retro-futuristic graphics, and a generally dystopian aesthetic.
Consider us hooked. We return every season to reup on the game’s best relaxed-fit hoodies, fire outerwear no matter what the season, and of course a stack of graphic tees.
Cav Empt SS22 is no departure from all the things we love about the quiet label. The outerwear is as strong as it’s ever been, with a particular highlight coming in the form of a pure-cotton, garment-dyed parka. Not only is this piece ideal for the season, but it embodies a lot of what makes the label so unique. The washed-out finish is a defining factor of Cav Empt pieces and this one carries a number of stitched-on graphics patches for the full signature flavor.
Below, we’ve put together some of our favorite pieces from Cav Empt SS22, ranging from outerwear and sweats to tees and pants.
