F A S H I O N : Russell Athletic Premium 2015

July 25, 2015

2

Russell Athletic collaborate with streetwear aficionados Trainerspotter to celebrate summer 2015 with a meticulously researched, and beautifully crafted, limited edition collection.

 

Russell Athletic Premium is a unique and sought-after collection that will stand the test of time. The partnership combines Russell Athletic’s classic aesthetic with Trainerspotter’s savvy for detail and contemporary style.

 

The range appropriates logos and slogans from the far-flung, sometimes obscure, sports clubs that the US sportswear giant has provided for over its century in business. These introduce a quirkiness to streetwear that never strays into kitsch, producing eye-catching and seemingly unique pieces that are nonetheless firmly rooted in sports heritage.

 

Elsewhere, the varsity aesthetic is stripped back to simply display ‘COLLEGE’. Many pieces also employ the modernist ‘RA Eagle’ logo from the 1980s, evoking Reagan-era optimism and ambition.

 

Colours lead rather than follow, with alluring creams, confident blues and a strutting scarlet prevalent in the palette. The expertly-chosen fabrics are textured and appear tactile without resorting to distressed or marl clichés.

The collection sticks to Russell Premiums conceptual vision, taking some of the brand’s finest historical moments and re-inventing them for the current generation. The line evokes the golden era of sportswear before mass production; when pieces were hard-wearing enough to actually exercise in and colours didn’t suffer from regular laundering. In its style, though, the 2015 collection nods towards the late 80s and early 90s – the on-trend era for retro sportswear. The cut though is flattering and contemporary.

 

At retail the Russell Athletic Premium collection is delivered exclusively into selected size? boutiques. Don’t miss out.

London’s Jack Bell Gallery brought two paintings by Ivorian artist Aboudia. Born and based in Abidjan, his work is brutal, layered, and heavily influenced by the clashes that followed Côte d’Ivoire’s 2010 presidential election. According to gallerist Jack Bell, “his paintings reference street art and vodou and look at social inequalities in downtown Abidjan.” Aboudia’s works are currently exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London, through September 2015.
