It’s no secret that here at The Alternative Store we’re big fans of Mike Giant and Joshy D’s Rebel8 brand. There’s something about their mix of tattoo, street and graffiti influences that makes Rebel8 one of the most iconic and visually-striking brands.
The latest drop of Rebel8 is now in stock and flying out of the door, so we thought it’d be a good idea to feature some of the items here. First up, we have the Rebel8 Rosalie III Tee in Black.
Also available in a white colourway, the Rosalie III Tee has everything that is great about Rebel8 – classic tattoo-inspired design, stunning iconography and an instantly recognisable style.
Also in the Rosalie III range, Rebel8 offer a wallet based on the same striking design.
As well as their tees, Rebel8 also offer a range of awesome jackets and outerwear, such as the Rebel8 Infinite Reversible Jacket.
Arguably the best item in this current range, this padded jacket is embroidered on the back of the neck with the Rebel 8 wreath logo and is embroidered on the left chest with R8 script. Being reversible, all of the design elements feature on the other side of the jacket, which is a shiny dark maroon colour.
Rounding out the selection is the Rebel8 The Block Snapback. This maroon snapback cap from Rebel 8 features a Rebel8 motif on front and snapback detail on the back, and is a guaranteed classic already.
Though life is always far from quiet at The Alternative Store, one of our fave new streetwear brands is The Quiet Life (note: you know when a play on words seems like a good idea, but actually isn’t? Yeaaaah…)
The Quiet Life is a small project from Los Angeles that is run by Andy Mueller and Jennifer Pitt. The Quiet Life have a habit of bringing out classy T-shirts such as the Joy Division-inspired Joy tee and their trademark apparel offers a stylish alternative to many other identikit streetwear brands.
The Aloha tee features a distinctive photographic design by Sam Smyth and is just the kind of eyecatching apparel that makes The Quiet Life such a hot brand.
Along with apparel, The Quiet Life also do a fine line in caps, such as the Painted Lines Starter Cap.
Similar in style to the Aloha tee, The Quiet Life ‘The End’ Black Tee also features a detailed photographic print designed by Andrew Neuheus.
