Unknown Union is off to (capsule) in Las Vegas next week to show our new collection alongside some of the best menswear brands in the world. Wish us luck!
Unknown Union will be at the Agenda Show in NYC on January 23rd premiering our Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Featuring design from Anees Petersen, Ben Johnson and Daniel Jackson, UU will be in good company alongside such brands as OBEY, BLVCK SCVLE, MISHKA and many more. UU will also be visiting (capsule) and Project to make sure we bring the best brands back to Cape Town next season.
We’ll be updating the blog with shots of our trip this week!
Unknown Union is very proud to announce our latest collaboration, the Levi’s® Premium Showcase opening Friday November 16th.
Levi’s® Vintage Clothing makes its African debut alongside a curated selection of premium pieces for both men and women.
Levi’s® Vintage Clothing is an authentic assortment dedicated to capturing the spirit of American workwear. Each season, the LVC range offers a selection of the most notorious of their “Icons” from a specific period in time, reproducing the precise fits, fabrics and details of the original garments found in the Levi’s® Archives.
Very excited to have our second shipment from Topshop and Topman on sale at Unknown Union now. This time the focus is more on Topshop for women, with over 100 new styles from Jeans and Hotpants to Backpacks and Sunglasses. There’s some great new pieces for the Topman as well. Supplies are extremely limited though – only one piece per size. Get here before they’re gone!
Unknown Union couldn’t be more proud of original member Yannick Ilunga, better known as Petite Noir. We’ve posted this video for “Till We Ghosts” before but today it was named Best New Track by Pitchfork.
The Guardian UK raved “The first three words he sings are “Oh my God”, which is exactly how we felt when we heard this.”
The downside of all this success is that we don’t see Yannick as much we used to: he just returned from Senegal and he’s leaving for London soon to prepare for his live debut Read further...
The wait is over! The Topshop and Topman pop-up shop launches at Unknown Union this Thursday July 12th!
While working hard to get the Topshop and Topman pop-up shop ready for next week, we got a pleasant surprise yesterday with the arrival of Levi’s new premium Commuter line. Designed with the urban cyclist in mind, this is the nicest range of product we’ve seen from Levi’s in a very long time and is only available at a handful of select retailers.
One of our favorite beat makers to emerge in the last few years has dropped his second instrumental mixtape. You may know many of the beats from tracks by A$AP Rocky, Lil B, The Weeknd – even Lana Del Rey – but it’s amazing how great they sound without the vocals. Nutley, New Jersey’s finest has been kind enough to make this mix available for free. Don’t miss it!
Beginning in July, Unknown Union will be home to Topshop and Topman’s first pop-up shop in Africa. Watch this space for more details.
