New Year, New Brands at Solestop
A new year means new beginnings at Solestop. We are welcoming four new brands in this month's blog. Featuring FELT, pinqponq, Han Kjobenhavn and Individualist Lab. From t-shirts to hoodies, and even dye-and-print kids, we have got all the new brands you should know about in 2021.
FELT: For Every Living Thing - The New York City streetwear brand founded by Kristian Acosta in 2014 has become known for playful colour palettes and an understated simplicity. FELT has employed apparel as a canvas for the artistic expression of the experiences and feelings we all share. The brand loves their bright colours and nostalgic graphics inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, bringing back a lot of retro and vintage vibes.
pinqponq is a sustainable backpack and clothing brand from Cologne, Germany. Their mission is to offer products that break new ground on the functionality and design front. All their products are vegan, PFC free, and eco-friendly. As we all know, climate change has been shoved under the rug and many are denying the fact that our Earth is changing. The climate crisis is closely related to the way we consume. Each purchase is a decision and the first step towards change. You decide where and what you consume. Choosing the eco-friendly option means that the planet can breathe a little easier. Responsibility is a big word and an even bigger promise to the future that pinqponq takes at heart every step of the way. Check out the collection and save the Earth now!
Han Kjøbenhavn was founded by Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen on the streets of Copenhagen in 2008. With roots in Danish design culture, HK began with their popular designs in the eyewear industry and evolved into menswear and womenswear. The vision of Han Kjøbenhavn is to create an uncompromising and unconventional universe, built upon creativity, storytelling and craftsmanship – with the ambition of taking people on a journey to new places. Now with three flagships stores in Copenhagen, New York and Paris, Han Kjobenhavn is making its mark in the fashion industry - as seen on Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and our very own, Drake.
