Just when we thought there couldn’t possibly be anything else we wanted this season, Wellgosh comes and blows us clean out of the water. It’s ok though, as long as we’ve got our North Face Black Box Utility Vest on, we’ll at least be somewhat dry afterwards. Take a look at our other favourite picks from the Leicester-based apparel icons this week.
WELLGOSH DROPS OF THE WEEK
From The North Face to Cav Empt, the Leicester-based fashion store unveils their top picks of the week.
The North Face Black Box Utility Vest
With the majority of our favourite festivals returning this summer, TNF (The North Face) already have our dancing gear sorted. The Black Box Utility Vest is equipped with all you need, which, to be honest, is just plenty of pockets and a lightweight feel. Made with DWR Nylon, the vest is far more durable and water-resistant than your average gilet, a 10/10 all around (£90).
The North Face EU Street 5 Panel + Karakash Cargo Pant
Of course, that’s not all. The North Face has also given us a sleek 5-panel cap with adjustable straps and a WFlashDry™ sweatband. Obviously, this is a huge win for those of us with big sweaty heads, keeping us cool and dry at all times (£25). Why not then pair your hat with a new pair of comfy cargo’s, cut from a blend of cotton, nylon and elastane? With drawstring waistbands and plenty of zip-closed pockets, these trousers are perfect no matter the weather. Take them mountain climbing, free-running, even flower-picking if you so desire (£90).
Adidas x The Simpsons x YDWFWS
Adidas have been hard at work resurrecting our favourite cartoons in shoe form, and after the wild success of their South Park ‘Towelie’ trainers, they’re back with an even ballsier collab, with The Simpsons and YDWFWS (You Don’t Win Friends With Salad). Now you too can wear the Kwik-E-Mart on your feet, with an opaque blue sole and shell tongue of the Superstar, and a whole host of vibrant pink, orange and green tinges to tickle your fancy. There’s even a Slurpee motif on the laces! (£75).
Cav Empt is giving us prints, on prints, on prints this week. Let us first introduce the Check Print Denim Shirt in Indigo. Comprised of a light bio-washed cotton denim, the design offers a whole lot of graphic punch and even two chest flap pockets (£370). Next up is the Japanese brand’s take on a bold shirt jacket, in a blistering overdyed orange. With wide fits, panels and bellowed cuffs, nothing could make us more obsessed with such an eye-catching design (£370).
Converse’s Chuck 70 Hi has been given something of a makeover this season, but the blusher and glossy lipstick is yet to be seen. Instead, it looks like they’ve waded through an album cover shoot for The Stone Roses, covered in splatters of blue, white and black paint. Whether you’re after a cream high-top (£80), or a low-rise iteration in Sunflower yellow (£75), the iconic sneaker brand has us covered for all vibes.
Nike NRG Solo Swoosh
We’ve been transported back to Tumblr’s 2013 pale blog era with Nike NRG’s latest collection. For those of you who weren’t there for all the faded ice creams or crisp snowy landscapes, not to worry, you can join in on all the fun with this selection of pastel pageantry. From Xanadu green crewnecks (£70) and icy psychic blue track pants (£65), to tees (£35) and hoodies (£80) in sandy shades of light bone, we’ve never seen such comfy looking loungewear in all our lives. Looks like we’ll be picking something up in every shade…
