London’s very own Skepta has released the first collection for his highly anticipated brand MAINS, now available for purchase exclusively at Selfridges online and in-store. The line is made up of tracksuits and tees, designed to be worn anywhere on which ever occasion, for comfort and style in the true fashion of Skepta, who’s taste in garms for years has been displayed through his love for a good tracksuit.
Most noticeably, the designs are absent of branding, straying away from your typical everyday tracksuit - “I’m tired of logos. The whole thing was about the ability to wear a tracksuit anywhere. I wanted a tracksuit that I could wear without feeling less entitled than anyone else.”
The unisex collection exhibits Skepta’s desire to break boundaries within fashion with simplistic pieces that are accessible to all. MAINS displays classic designs and colour-ways, with pieces available in khaki green, navy, and white for now, with hopes to stand the test of time and build a brand that ties in with Skepta’s wishes. “I want this to be for life and with all that instant hype stuff as soon as something goes up its just as quick to come down. I want to build it up with a great integrity.” (Skepta speaking with Vogue.)
After 2 years of designing and production, the first MAINS collection is now ready, premiered with a Marrakech themed launch party and a lookbook shoot to match, the new line is perfect for your chilled summer wardrobe with a hint of royalty through it’s detailed embroidery. Get shopping.
