It’s been a while since we last posted on local label Grand Scheme. It wasn’t a hiatus or trial separation or anything – but things needed a little time before we could realise what they were truly capable of. It’s a pleasure to say that it looks like this men’s street label has indeed been scheming away in the last year or so: their latest lookbook for Spring Summer 2011 is The Shit.
The lookbook for the sun dappled collection features more of the standard streetwear and artist collaboration tee’s that we’ve come to love from Grand Scheme. Think high-necked plaid shirts, denim cut-offs, and some Pink Floyd-esque graphics. All of it is tinkered around in on hot tin roofs and river sides by three of the Brisbane-based label's friends (code for: "we paid them in clothing and they're not real models, but don't they look schmick in our clothing regardless?
The snaps were taken by a local photographer, Luke Shirlaw
, whose portfolio includes street art, skate, men’s fashion, and Sydney’s Hobogestapo. He also shoots for a new little magazine from our sunnier sister that everybody should check out: Brisbane’s Hell Yeah
. Luke just finished snapping 30 lads and ladies in their favourite tees for Issue #2 and we can’t wait to see the results
Since opening the “arts and lifestyle label” (no idea what that means, but it sounds good, hey?) the boys have featured names such as Lister, Nate Van Dyke and Revok on their tees. Today they’re stocked all over the country as well as in New Zealand and the U.S. of A. Go you good Aussies!
