Still stuck for a way to update your wardrobe for 2014? Well look no further! Give your style kudos a kick-start with Starter Black Label’s new SS14 collections. Famed for its unique collaborations with pop-culture brands such as MTV and Star Wars as much as its popularity with hip-hop stars, from February Starter is offering up three distinct collections for the new season.
Taking reference from post-war counter-culture, the brand’s Veteran Summer collection is available from February. Featuring graphics inspired by tattoo iconography, military humour, and fighter pilot art, the collection introduces a fresh and vibrant colour palette into key pieces. Highlights include hand-drawn custom-camo patterns derived from Asia's indigenous birds of paradise, the Platoon Raglan Tee with veteran palette-coloured sleeves, and the metallic snapback inspired by the 1940’s World War II combat aircraft shark motifs.If innovative prints and eye-catching fabrics are your thing, you can look forward to the Hydrometric collection, landing April 2014. Influenced by Egyptian astrology and combining technical sport fabrics and bold colour-ways, the Hydrometric collection boasts an intricate mix of patterns, themes and fabrics from past, future and present. Key designs include the cavalry twill visor snapback and authentic apparel pieces such as the LBCP Satin Jacket and the LBCP Baseball Jersey. Whether you’re from West Philadelphia or West Bromwich, you can’t go wrong with Starter’s Fresh Prince inspired Philly Fresh collection, pulling up this May. Right on target for fashion’s ongoing ‘90s trend, this collection keeps things suitably bright and sunny for summer. Jazzy Jeff, Biggy and the show’s legendary theme song ‘West Philadelphia Born & Raised’ (High-five if you know all the words!) are the key influences behind this loud and proud collection. Eye-catching snapbacks include designs which nod to the 1992 classic movie, White Men Can’t Jump and FIFA’s 2014 World Cup in Brazil, while stand-out pieces include the Coogi x Jazzy Jeff Starter Aztec pattern jacket, vest and hook-up snap, featuring all-over prints and logo infill.
