Adidas’ premium fashion oriented sub-label needs no introduction. The collection draws on the rich heritage of the company’s history in sports to turn out amazing retro-inspired street wear and iconic sneakers such as the Superstar shoes, Stan Smiths and Adicolor Trainers. The brand is taking inspiration from 90s rave style, Manchester Hacienda clubs and football culture for SS14, with acid brights, and bold retro patterns dominating the collection. Relive it all at Capsule Berlin.

 

BILLYKIRK

billykirk

The BillyKirk accessories collection is handmade by Amish craftspeople in Pennsylvania, and we think that’s freaking awesome. Chris and Kirk Bray, the brother duo behind Billy Kirk place a lot of emphasis on finding the best American leather workers to make their collection of men’s accessories and their commitment to top quality production and materials really pays off. Billykirk’s classic and loveable, well-made leather goods and canvas accessories are designed to get better with age - nice. These artisanal collections aren’t led by trend, just an honest appreciation for utility, longevity and provenance. Find these beautiful satchels, totes, pouches, and carryalls along with belts, card cases, and wallets at Capsule Berlin.

 

DEMOCRATIQUE SOCKS

DS210012-rwdy

Putting sock design into the hands of the people, Jacob Christiansen, or the The Sock Democrat, as he calls himself, launched Democratique Socks in 2011 with the goal of creating great quality socks at an accessible price point. In addition to designing a wide range of colorful socks featuring traditional Danish design aesthetics, Jacob & co ask his customers and fans to send in their own design suggestions, which are posted on the Democratique website and voted on by the general public. The designs with the most votes are manufactured and sold by the brand. The SS14 collection is a mix of cotton and wool socks in patterns that will tickle one's toes. Check out what’s in store for your feet at Capsule Berlin.

 

 

MAHARISHI

maharishi

Military surplus dealer Hardy Blechman launched Maharishi in 1994 as a small-scale producer of fair trade clothing with a military-style influence, and his original vision for the brand continues to be relevant today. Maharishi is known for its innovative use of camouflage, embroidery and details from army uniforms and the now iconic Snopants style (not to mention an amazing book on camouflage). Maharishi was awarded Streetwear Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Council Awards in 2000 and after all these years, the brand has expanded to offerings for men, women and kids. Maharishi has continually embraced the latest technology to create well-styled pieces out of fair trade and natural materials while always drawing on the camo, military details and fabrications that have become the label’s signature.
