The Tube is one of those things you just can’t avoid when you are in London. East to West, best use the Tube? Walk of shame home from Brixton? Gotta use the Tube! It has become a part of all Londoner’s lives and a melting pot for history, subculture and, of course, convenient travel. Last year we saw the release of the debut capsule collection from Roundel by London Underground, a street wear brand inspired by the iconic place itself and now the brand is launching its first full range for A/W14.
British subculture and the dirty heart of London really remains at the heart of Roundel by London Underground. and for AW 14 the brand continues to develop its close connection to youth style throughout modern history.
The T-shirt selection has grown this season with the addition of a selection of graphic prints inspired by the archive artwork created by a collective of some of the world’s most iconic artists. The collection has reinvented their classic MA1- style bomber, which has long been a symbol of youth style, as well as adding a great raincoat to the repertoire. And out course the classic French Terry tracksuit is back, because we are all chavs at heart. The accessories range has been designed using the famous moquette print and contains a series of zip pouches, oyster cardholders, wallets and a backpack.
“The Roundel by London Underground collection truly encapsulates the diverse mix of music, style and art that make London such a unique city within the global community.Embodying the inclusive and democratic nature of the Tube, by embracing the motto “Thanks to the Underground, we are all Londoners now.”
