Garbstore AW15 'Walking In Seventy' focuses on the British Pastime of Rambling (walking through the countryside) with a particular interest in the 1970's.
Across the range this can be seen through fabrics and styles reminiscent of the 70's. In keeping with Garbstore's penchant for post war clothing, and adaptation of the past, a range of ramblers are represented. Garbstore's jersey embraces sportswear fabrics of the 70's with velour, toweling and micro-fleece garments that are interchangeable as more casual items or functional sportswear. Throughout the woven selection appropriations and recreations of real vintage pieces and fabric treatments allow for a wider telling of the story.
This ranges from sturdy outerwear to casual tailoring brought together through functionality and practicality. The detailing as usual gives authenticity to the collection with vintage zips and buttons.
Garbstore's Made in England Knitwear is also back for another season. The inspiration for the knitwear is always heavily rooted in knitting techniques and the creation of interesting knitted textiles. This season particularly focusing on combining different techniques within the individual pieces. Shop this season's collection available in-store and online.

Insta Pump Fury Road by Reebok X Garbstore
This style was previously unavailable outside of Japan, the Insta Pump Fury Road takes inspiration and was actually released the same year as the Insta Pump Fury with a few notable differences. The original split cushioned outsole, a distinguishing feature of the Insta Pump Fury, is replaced with an all in one 'Hexalite' mid-sole with the webbing mesh designed and using marbled print neoprene as the upper material.
For the in-store London and LA launch, Garbstore collaborated with a local street artist to create a special 'anamorphic' installation. The time lapse video captures frame by frame view the artist went through to complete the artwork. Using a technique dating back to the Renaissance times called 'anamorphic projection', the artist created a distorted flat image requiring the viewer to stand at a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image.

The South Shelter collection takes the idea of construction, of layers, of different processes layered to create strength; fabrics include many Japanese woven Jacquards which are then given extra dying treatments to change their appearance. Hemp replaces cotton, Jacquard replaces print. Most notable items in the collection are the Maintenance jacket and chinos.
which are made up of vintage fabric which is hand finished with paint splats in bleach and oil paint. The South Shelter title is reference to the isolated and melancholy illustration used on the t-shirt print. While the daisy, palm tree, and tropical aloha prints give the collection a playful undertone. Stand in, not out.

Garbstore presents its third capsule collection for Reebok, which comprises four much-loved Reebok Classic silhouettes: the Phase II, Classic Leather 6000, Classic Inferno and Pump Running Dual Mid.
Muted colorways form the backdrop of the two Classic Leather 6000 styles, which combine soft neutral tones for understated, timeless style. A white toe is juxtaposed with a branded pebble midsection, which unexpectedly divides the shoe for a bold, edgy look. Taking inspiration from locker room sports towels, the two styles are completed with premium pig suede lining and luxe terry cloth outers in either steel grey or olive rear colorways.
The four styles from the Reebok Classic x Garbstore AW14 collection will drop between July – November 2014. Shop in-store and online.
The Pump Dual is reworked into a mid-boot for a new take on the staple silhouette. Heavy contrast stitching reveals the asymmetrical outlines of the Pump Dual units that wrap around the rear of the shoe, offering an original perspective and exclusive look at the infamous Pump technology.
For the Phase II, inside details and stitching are transported through the shoe to form the outside design, whilst traditionally external features adorn the insole, which features a printed outline of the sole design creating a novel aesthetic touch.
The 90s Classic runner Inferno returns for the collaboration, featuring contrasting textures and colors that result in a contemporary and daring interpretation of the silhouette. Mesh windows expose the arch bandage from the inside, whilst perforated suede leather adorns the midsection in a distinctive outline that brings an original twist to the shoe’s traditional construction. A speckled sole provides a final dash of style and fresh update for fall.
