Nicce has launched its limited-edition White Label series, pushing the boundaries of the brands current aesthetic for a more directional and fashion-led offering. Our Fashion Editor, Thomas Falkenstedt, has always had a soft spot for the brand and reviews the collection from a place of admiration.
It's no secret, I've always had a faiblesse for Nicce. My liking for them dates back to 2013 when the brand launched, but you can find me ranting on about them in earlier articles here on Candid as well.
Taking note from their roots in music, Nicce have now launched a White Label series in homage of the prestige of white label vinyl records.
To be quite honest, this was a gap in my widespread range of knowledge.
Produced in a limited run to generate buzz around a new track or single, white label vinyls have become a critical marker in the establishment of experimental and cutting-edge music scenes.
Often one of the original pressings of a track, white labels have become highly sought after, collectable items. I mean, I knew of the phenomena, just not what it was called.
Taking inspiration from this, Nicce White Label is an exclusive limited-run capsule, released bi-annually, with a more trend-focused approach while still taking the lead from functional and technical outdoor wear.
The collection draws heavily on architectural influences and contemporary art, citing the works of South American artist Luis Barragan for inspiration for the bold, graphic, angular cut-and-sew pieces in colour-blocked pastels.
Coral, white and mint tones combine to evoke memories of late summer sunsets, seen across sweats and jersey to nylon jackets and ponchos, ensuring all bases are covered for the ultimate summer wardrobe.
I must admit, I'm finally starting to believe summer will come to us this year, despite it having been a long struggle to get this far.
The collection is available at the Nicce website.
