Famous names reinvent themselves all the time through rebrands, new Creative Directors, or collaborations that reframe the label. What’s not so common is to see a brand work its way up from nothing to become one of the most talked-about names in streetwear. If anything, it’s proof of how difficult it is to create hype from scratch, but Corteiz (often styled CRTZ) hasn’t had a problem in this arena.

Hailing from London, Corteiz has seen an astronomical rise to fame but it hasn’t done so through sponsored ad campaigns or the traditional routes. Instead, organic events broadcast last-minute on founder Clint419’s Instagram page have whipped up a fervent cult following, ready to drop whatever they’re doing to flood the streets of any given location.

From giving out new puffer jackets in exchange for old The North Face Jackets which are donated to the homeless, through to releasing the viral Corteiz cargo pants at a local 99p market shop, Clint’s inspired take on brand building is a masterclass for all young labels.

And boy, is the strategy working. CRTZ announced on Instagram recently that it had secured a collaboration with none other than Nike. The Corteiz x Nike collaboration comes in the form of a Nike Air Max 95. If you thought that CRTZ was hyped already, get ready for the next level in 2023.

So, the question arises: how to buy Corteiz? Well, it’s not that easy. Unless you’re one of the thousands ready to leave school or work to find Clint in London, you’ve got little chance of copping anything from the cult label at retail price. Instead, buying Corteiz clothing at resale is a safe bet.
