Shepherd Fairey's eponymous brand, OBEY, has been disrupting the streetwear landscape since it's inception in 2001. Originally an extension of Fairey's street art and work in activism, OBEY became globally recognised thanks to the brand's Andre the Giant stencil logo adaptation.
In recent years OBEY have put out seasonal collections, with each one building and evolving on the last. This year for Fall the brand explore a number of on trend materials and continue to remind us why they're still a force to be reckoned with 18 years down the line.
Comprised of impressive cut n sew pieces, their Fall outerwear explores on trend materials such as Sherpa fleece and a range of colour palettes.
The Echo Pop Over Fleece and matching Easy Echo Pants in a distorted checkerboard pattern are a formidable set for the colder months. With a half zip mock neck, zippered pockets and elasticated cuffs and hem the Pop Over Fleece is a sure fire winter warmer. The Easy Echo Pants have an elasticated waistband with drawstring and elasticated cuffs providing maximum levels of comfort.
If a matching set is too much for you, perhaps the Out There Sherpa Jacket will suffice? Available in both Natural and Pure Teal, the fleece has zippered chest pockets and woven OBEY branding. A casual style with plenty of punch, this could be your new everyday piece.
Continuing their cut n sew assets is the Channel Mock Neck Fleece with simple branded embroidery in a split colour style. No nonsense functionality is at the forefront with this one.
As always, at the heart of all streetwear brands, OBEY drop a number of heavyweight hoodies offering up a range of graphics for the Fall season. The Psych Hoody with its direct embroidery on the chest ticks all the right boxes, available in both Back and Alpine.
Winter layers are present also, with the Outpost Woven Shirt leading the charge. In a heavyweight cotton twill, this layering piece has button down chest pockets with it's traditional silhouette given new life in a bright Mauve colourway.
Finally, taking things in a new direction are zippered versions of wardrobe favourites. The Baron Zip Crew brings the best of both worlds of polo shirts and sweaters. With an embroidered hit to the center panel, zip neck and collar this is a slightly smarter take on the traditional crewneck.
Continuing the zippered theme, the Chunk Classic Polo Shirt with oldschool stripes and a delicate chest motif takes inspiration from 80s style polo shirts, in a modern streetwear form.
