With winter now truly upon us, we’ve said goodbye to long sunny days, and with them our warm-weather wardrobes. Alongside this seasonal shift comes the need for more suitable pieces which can hold up to the elements.
Established in 2009 by Cho Nadan, Park Inwook and Choi Jonkyu, the Korean brand has spent over a decade gaining traction whilst defining a niche within the landscape of contemporary streetwear.
To celebrate the arrival of cosy new winter collections at Couverture, we invited brand consultant and digital creator Brittany Bathgate to pop by the store for a catch-up and coffee whilst she was visiting West London from her hometown of Norwich.
For our latest editorial, The Garbstore has enlisted photographer Luke Fullalove to portray its three in-house labels – Garbstore, The English Difference and Drop Out Sports – around his local North London, putting each piece to the test of a typical day in the city.
Paying homage to both US and UK cultures, the piece takes inspiration from traditional British wax jackets and early outdoor garments from the Pacific East, updated with technical goose-down insulation to keep you warm throughout the colder months.
