When it comes to brands in the realm of streetwear, there are those which came around and proceeded to make a name for themselves, then there are those who exist simply because there was nothing left for their founders to do outside of throwing their proverbial hat in the ring.
One such brand is Staple, which comes to us by way of the creative mastermind behind both Staple Design and Reed Space, Jeff Ng… more affectionately known as Jeff Staple. For years now, Staple has been on the forefront of streetwear culture not only creating his own line of wears, but also collaborating with some of the industry’s biggest names like New Balance, Nike and Oakley, just to name a few.
Over the course of recent seasons however, Staple has placed a renewed focus on the line that bears his name (or nickname) and the attention to detail and subtleties that can make a closing line great, which have yet again been brought to our attention by one of the best in the business.
For the fall of 2013, Staple has once again employed the things that have gotten him to where he is currently positioned in the market. Being no stranger to the use of printed materials, we are treated to another round of this more, the prints are ever present without being overwhelming, something that not many streetwear brands can say exist in their lines.
The fall 2013 offering also serves up many of the “staple” pieces and materials we have come to expect for this time of year with soft, tonal colors in the spotlight and layer-friendly, all-weather items serving as the centerpieces of the line. Evolution and growth are something that every designer strives for when creating something new, and it appears as though Jeff Staple and crew have accomplished this rather simply, by remembering where they come from.
