Insta Art

Now we all know the impact that social media has on our everyday lives. It brought you here, to this blog post. It’s how we communicate, how we shop, how some of us build our careers and even how we find love. But have we ever thought about the impact it has had on art?

Unit London, founded in 2013 by 2 young artists wanted to “break down barriers of elitism” and include everyone in contemporary art. They’ve teamed up with Avante Arte to hold a free exhibition in London of art popularised on Instagram. Fact of the day, it’s reported that “48% of art buyers use Instagram”. We headed down to Wardour street to check it out.

If art is your thing then showing casing it on your Insta account may be the best way to get you noticed!

Offspring 20 | Timberland | Tea & Toast

Throughout the 1990’s, Timberland created a host of classics recognised by the world over. Featuring the brands distinguished styling, certain colour ways became notorious along with their incidental nick-names; Beef and Broccoli and Mac and Cheese to name but a few.

Offspring has taken this concept and given it a quintessentially British twist to mark the 20th Anniversary; Tea & Toast.

1996 saw an abundance of cafés on Neal Street and tea and toast was a popular staple within the stores at the time. The collaboration draws inspiration from this landmark year with the 6” Premium Boot, finished in tones alike to the classic snack. Featuring premium full-grain nubuck and leather, the boot is also finished with the Offspring landscape lining in blue to represent classic china.

Launching on 11.11.16 these limited edition boots are accompanied with a bespoke ‘Bread loaf’ printed box and Offspring 20th Anniversary tissue paper.

Cloth Surgeon X Vans X Offspring | Launch | 4.11.16

Vans have joined forces with us and London based streetwear brand clothsurgeon to create a premium crafted Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, launching exclusively with Offspring at Selfridges in store and online on Friday 4th November.

Combining the passions and aesthetics of all three partners, the shoes are the culmination of a truly collaborative project. Centred around two iconic Vans silhouettes, the focus of the project was to create something unique, taking inspiration from British menswear design details and maintaining an emphasis on quality.

With clothsurgeon designer Rav Matharu’s nostalgic love for the movie ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ as a starting point and the design references, heritage and philosophies that emanate from Vans, Offspring and clothsurgeon’s combined creative history, the outcome captures all of this as well as their mutual obsession and love for beautiful footwear.

Using luxury veg tan hide and soft suedes for a premium execution and ice sole with the iconic Vans checkerboard, the shoes also feature a gimping detail that runs around the midsole as a homage to British shoe heritage. Whilst zig zag detailing is taken from one of clothsurgeon’s most celebrated silhouettes, the MA-1.

The bespoke side of the clothsurgeon brand is then encapsulated by the insole and box sleeve, which are scattered in patterns of their staple bomber jacket, finished with a cropped garment bag to take the shoes away. It is a conscious effort to merge the two worlds of streetwear and Savile Row.

Offspring’s Aman Tak commented on the collaboration: “We wanted to create a shoe that maintained Vans DNA, but merged three worlds of skate, streetwear and luxury together. Three things that each of us stand for in our respective fields and I think that’s exactly what we’ve achieved.”

Limited quantities of the unique shoes are available at our Offspring concession in Selfridges, online and in-store, from tomorrow.

Offspring 20 | Adidas Brit Pack

Taking inspiration from the iconic attire of the 1990’s, the adidas ‘Britpack’ celebrates the era in which Offspring was conceived & developed, with an exclusive take on three Original classics; Superstar 80s, Stan Smith and Climacool.

britpack

The Superstar 80’s has been ingrained with cues to the heavy-duty, military style boots worn throughout the 90’s. Featuring a full leather upper, gunmetal shell toe, laser cut logo and embossed stripes. The nostalgic nod and seasonal relevance equals a fresh take on a timeless model.

The Stan Smith takes inspiration from the classic monkey boot, featuring a waxed canvas upper in classic khaki with a crepe wedge sole; harking back to the classic 90’s parka. All finished with rich leather heel tab and featuring the iconic British flag, a huge nod to the legendary Brit Pop era.

The Climacool is motivated by the iconic Adidas track top that enjoyed a renowned celebrity endorsement from some of the UK’s biggest bands throughout the 1990’s. This style presents a Climacool mesh in the quintessential blue complete with gum outsole and a luxe nubuck lining.

Launching 28.10.16 the Britpack celebrates Offspring’s 20th year, with all three models sporting an exclusive sock stamp featuring the very first store on Neal Street.
