Introducing LFT FLD
The streetwear market is currently awash with mawkish 90s nostalgia – swapping subtle references for full on, costume-like garb. So, I was filled with a sense of trepidation last night when I read the press release introducing LFT FLD when it mentioned that the collection took cues from 90s sportswear. However, this is nostalgia done right and executed from a thoroughly modernist standpoint, which is exactly how it should be. The silhouettes are contemporary and the reference points seem to span from rave culture to football casuals in a manner which is coherent and considered. In LFT FLD’s inaugural collection, stripped back M-65s sit alongside track jackets and rugby shirts – taking all the good bits from 90s street fashion but applying technical fabrics and graphics from the sought-after Fergus Purcell (Fergadelic). Once you read who is involved – Paul Ruffles of Footpatrol & Size?, Gareth Skewis of Palace and David Farrell of the best British blog-cum-agency to have emerged in the last year, Peach—Fuzz – you begin to understand why this brand has the makings of a very solid label. I look forward to seeing more from them.
For the time being, you can shop the collection at size?
