Unfazed by the adverse weather, our Scandinavian correspondent set out to capture some of adidas Originals 2014 female sportswear highlights in a cold and wintery Norway
While in New York recently, Tom sat down with street culture pioneer Jeff Staple, a man who surely needs no introduction.
Taking inspirations from the thriving reggae/dub scene that is synonymous with West London, Grind London's 'Jah Bless' collection was an opportunity for the brand to reference a culture that they have been involved with for years. Shot in Portobello, this exclusive lookbook showcases the impressive collection amongst an area that is so imperative to the musical sub culture.
In a somewhat unusual slant towards menswear (For us at least) we recently caught up with Ian Paley – founder of British menswear boutique and label Garbstore.
Around about the beginning of last year the world of menswear experienced a movement of sorts. Gradually dismantling a dichotomy of Haute Couture and Hot Commodity that for decades kept all of fashion’s creatures in their appropriate cages, the emergence of type-defiant labels that refused to sit comfortably on either side of the fence has arguably been one of the best things to happen to fashion in a minute
Colourway first came to our attention last year with their debut collection 'First Light'. I'd never heard of them until I saw Greg talking about them on Fuckin Yeh, and was keen to know more. Generally you can set your trend watching clock to brands Greg finds and speaks about, and it seems Colourway is no different.
Australian brand Grand Scheme exploded onto our shores last year with a ultra-strong collection of headwear, prints and cut n sew. The brand itself has been going since 2006, and in the process has been worn and endorsed by some of hip hops finest, including Kendrick Lamar, Odd Future, Action Bronson and the Flatbush Zombies.

While visiting London for their pop-up at West London's Bluebird store, GregK got the chance to sit down with brand founder Silas Adler and his business partner Jacob Kampp-Berliner
We've been following Scottish brand POP.SIC.ILL since we featured them a few issues back and off the back of their 'Atlanticism' we decided to find out more.
Bodega is not your average store. Its range of clothing, sneakers and accessories can put many to shame while its collaborations have consistently been some of the finest on offer. No short cuts, no bandwagon jumping, just quality product
I stupidly respect Graeme Gaughan. Dude is the communications director of London agency IPR, works there full time and still finds the time to run a fully fledged fashion brand that in just over two years has grown from a t-shirt and sweat line into one of the most exciting new brands to come out of London in recent times.
Last week Hypebeast launched their Impressions Issue, which focuses heavily on A Bathing Ape, at the BAPE Store in London
Take a look at what happened when Puma & Millerain invited Breaks Magazine up to Aberdeen to check out the factory that produced the fabric for the awesome Puma Stepper Luxe trainer.
Long-time Breaks collaborators Anna Victoria Best and Georgia Boal Russell present their fashion editorial 'Bro's in Brockwell', featuring our picks of the seasons more retro-themed street and sportswear
This year quite a few streetwear brands celebrated a decade of existence, 2003 was clearly a good year as it birthed The Hundreds, Mishka and Rebel 8. Despite what Joshy D from Rebel 8 would say (Started on $500, look at me now blah blah), none of them are more deserving of reaching that decade than King Apparel, who currently reign as the UKs oldest independent streetwear brand.
Over two trips to New York in the summer of 2013, Tom took the time to meet Kiernan Costello and get to grips with the LES legend that is his brand aNYthing.
Ten years ago, the adidas Stan Smith was in a pretty sorry state. It was a shoe you'd most often see worn by students, a dirty pair poking out from a pair of shit-flicker bootcut jeans with the hems trodden down. Even worse, numerous skate shoe companies had taken the elegant silhouette and ruined the proportions with fat tongues and excessive padding. With brands and retailers exploring the far reaches of their extensive back catalogues for alternatives, the adidas Stan Smith wasn't enjoying its finest hour.
Regular columnist GregK of Fuckin Yeh mulls over The Language of Brands
Times are tough for the sneakerhead in 2013. Insta-sellout quickstrikes, retros and themed packs have left them penniless and hooked like swagged up smacks addicts, and the streetwear explosion of the past few years has seen an invasion of Joey Essex chino wankers buying up all the #rare kicks as well. Alec Leach considers some alternative hobbies for the recovering sneakerhead
