  • ADDICT x Cooler Than Cake

    23rd November 2015

    Our friends over at New York-based menswear blog Cooler Than Cake have absolutely nailed it with their new editorial piece featuring our AW15 range.

    Featuring model Lucas Sachs and shot by Todd Alexander, the team have taken some of their favourite pieces for a walk around a park in Brooklyn, commenting that the collection "blends seamlessly into the New York landscape and captures the edge and functionality that embodies the streetwear vibe".

    Mad props to these guys! Head over to their blog to see the full editorial

  • ADDICT x Ben Manuwa

    30th October 2015

    He's the kind of guy we don't want to get on the wrong side of, so we're lucky Ben "Man of War" Manuwa is a fan of our new range!

    Ben is manager, and team member, of fighting gym Lion's Pride MMA in Croydon. The mixed martial artist is currently undefeated and competes in the featherweight division, while his brother Jimi competes professionally in the light heavyweight division.

    We went back to basics with our Autumn Winter 15 collection to create a small but strong line of easy-to-wear statement pieces, which still retaining the technical detailing ADDICT has always been known for.

    Key pieces to the collection include the strong tailoring of the Padded Shirt Jacket, the white Kwills camouflage printed Neo Mariner Jacket, and, most notably, the Reflective Reversible Windcheater which features a completely high reflective outer shell.

    In true form, we have released some limited edition pieces in collaboration with two very talented artists. in our Artist Series this season, you can find work by world-renowned illustration agency ilovedust, who delivered their trademark abstract typography for the Operations Jacket, and also an amazing all over print by draughtsman Kwills, who presented this season’s brushstroke woodland camo print.

    Hit us up on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and let us know what you think!

  • Introducing... Tom Joy

    9th October 2015

    Meet the photography mastermind, Tom Joy, who shot our Autumn Winter 15 collection fresh off the plane from Norway!

    Name: Tom Joy

    Location: Originally from Aberdeen - I've been in Leeds for just over 2 years now. LEEDSLEEDSLEEDS!

    Has also worked with the likes of: Red Bull, The Hundreds, Harvey Nichols, Abandon Ship, Prevalence Co, and I've just finished up a pretty cool project for Leeds City Council related to my @LeedsLurking project

    What are you listening to right now: The Rolling Stones - Give me Shelter. Shout out to my Dad for this influence!

    Why Photography: Fundamentally, photography is something that has never held me back. I have control of it, I have control being self employed and I can go at the pace I want. Back at Secondary School I wanted to pursue business marketing - I guess I'm doing that to a large extent being a freelancer whilst also being able to engage with my creative side. There's only a few things that let me switch off completely and I am probably most relaxed when I'm behind my camera focussed on what's in front of me.

    Which ADDICT piece was your favourite from the shoot? That's tough... I really liked the olive bomber jacket - the quilting on the exterior was cool and the vibrant orange looked rad! I also really liked the grey collared jacket. It's simple and could be smart or casual - perfect. 

    Check out Tom's project on Instagram, Leeds Lurking, and keep an eye on his personal instagram @TomJoyPhoto for his incredible personal photography as well as sneak peaks of his work
