Throughout the U.K., it feels like there are brands constantly popping up out of nowhere. And while the uncouth marketing tactic of straight to the point Instagram captions -- partnered with last-minute drops -- appear to be the in-thing right now, the latter can only be justified by a strong consistency of good-quality products and garments. One brand championing quality is Places+Faces. The London-based label is capitalizing on the hype around its impressive social media co-signs from the likes of Skepta, Lil Uzi Vert, A$AP Rocky, and Lewis Hamilton by presenting its last drop of the summer that includes oversized utility looks and bootlegged brand logos.
For the collection, P+F has welcomed U.K. drill star Unknown T -- who starred in the recent Palace x Calvin Klein collaboration -- to be the face of the latest drop. Collection highlights include the khaki cargo pants that incorporate utility pockets on both legs along with customary P+F branding on each side. The capsule also features a double-hooded, water-resistant windbreaker that's available in both black and blue colorways.
Standout T-shirts feature a reworked FedEx logo that reads "FedUP, where's my order?" along with a bootlegged Street Fighter logo that brings a slice of nostalgia to the collection. Rounding off the final drop of the summer, the V2 P+F sunglasses -- a design favored by Unknown T throughout his career -- have been designed with a slightly boxier frame than previous editions.
You can have a closer look at the latest Places+Faces collection above and it will be available on the official Places+Faces website on August 26 at 3 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. EST).
