Places+Faces' First Collection Includes Hoodies, Fanny Packs & Cozy Coordinates
Places+Faces has debuted its first unisex apparel collection. A humble beginning of shooting hip-hop’s finest has transformed into an international movement in youth culture. The brand’s co-founders, Ciesay and Soulz, began to produce screen-printed hoodies, caps and waist bags due to popular demand. Now the duo has released a streetwear line that includes everything a cozy girl might need. The co-founders shared their journey with Vogue:
“We wanted to move on from screen-printing to doing cut and sew. To grow the clothing, and move into denim jackets and sweats with matching bags… Some of the t-shirts are produced in Portugal and washed to give that faded look I love in vintage tees. We want to progress into that look: we are photographers and we shoot and film, so that is on brand.”
Standout items include the denim outerwear and lightweight vests. These items arrive in solid colors like black, navy and red that allow for easy styling. The brand’s text logo is stamped on the front for instant recognition. The fan-favorite fanny packs and backpacks are sure to be the accessory of the season. The lookbook above showcases the entire range placing focus on new pieces like the camo tote bag and crewneck/jogger coordinates. Every look is paired with Nike’s Air Force 1 in white — a staple sneaker.
It won’t be easy to get your hands on this release and that is intentional. Ciesay confesses:
“We don’t want to be too easily accessible. We prefer it to be for people that really like the brand and understand the brand. We like to do the pop-ups because we meet those people, and they come to the party afterwards. It helps make a community of different people around the world.”
