Coming up from Croydon, South London, Jamie Backshall’s interpretation of skinhead culture in his peripherals passed on from his father’s outlook, the love of punk, echoing street culture, combining these two tribes to create a new identity in the fashion industry.
A Viper favorite, Jamie Backshall unveils a look into his street-tailored set of new tracksuits and no, it’s not just any tracksuit so don’t be fooled and let us tell you why.
Jamie once told us that his main inspiration comes from his favourite Tupac poem “The Rose That Grew From Concrete” and his vision is to try and create that rose that grew from the concrete though his own cutting approach. It’s clear to see that as a young designer, Jamie Backshall is mastering his craft in his own manner. His own way. Rooting from the “cement’, we can see a slate’ colour reference covering the base of his uniquely cut tracksuits and a tactical input of wide pockets and secretive pockets featuring on both the hooded sweatshirt and pants. Belonging to the street, the tracksuits receive an embroidery branded finish of the Jamie Backshall logo situated on the hoods and lower leg of the track pants, never to be missed.
Take a closer look at the Jamie Backshall debut release above with a Viper exclusive editorial. The Collection is available online now at www.jamiebackshall.com
