The Chimp Store look books have always been amazing and they return to the Illustrative lookbook for their first creative output of 2014. Teaming up with the extremely talented Illustrator Kieren they have brought the past, Rat Pack, into the 21st century by chimpin’ them out in latest Ice Cream, Nike, adidas Originals, Asics, Levi’s, Rockwell By Parra & more. Kieren Illustrates core members of the infamous Rat Pack & gives a detailed look at some of The Chimp Stores latest products and roster additions including footwear & streetwear mainstay adidas Originals and the much praised Japanese footwear brand Asics. The Loobook features Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, Humphrey Bogart & Joey Bishop as you have never seen them before.
After the huge success of their snapback cap collaboration with INDCSN, The Chimp Store have decided to put out their first tee, named Rising. It was hand screened in Yorkshire with artwork provided by Harlton Chesterton to make up the extremely small run of this tee shirt. The Rising tee is available from 10am in store tomorrow, 19th November and will be online at midday.
The Chimp Store presents a quirky editorial this season, that is to some extent literal to what the store name implies. Enlisting photographer Harlton Chesterton to come up with a series of black and white images, the Leeds-based retailer flaunts a vast selection of beanies as worn by the ape-masked models. Titled “Barnet of the Apes,” the lookbook draws attention to select stocked brands including Crooks & Castles, UNDFTD, HUF and Dickies. Be sure to check out the editorial above.
Chimp Store has done it again, here is a unique way of presenting the season’s new releases through lookbook illustrations. Having previously used a Planet of the Apes theme to highlight, this time the store has chosen to feature the famous Lego man sporting tees from brands like Rockwell, HUF, Rebel 8 and Crooks & Castles. All pieces are available for purchase now through The Chimp Store.
This has got to the best look book I have ever seen. The illustrated lookbook by Chimp Store highlights the Dickies x Stussy capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2011. Drawing inspiration from Planet of the Apes, the unique images feature revolutionary chimpanzees wearing items from the collaboration that include a zip-up hoodie, chambray shirt and work pants. The pieces are on sale now and can be purchased here
Back in July I told you that two iconic brands were joining forces, Stussy and Dickies. The workwear aesthetic of Dickies along with Stussy’s well-documented coolness results in a collection comprised of hoodies, denim shirts and pants. I have been excited for a long time about this as once upon a time these were two brands I loved to wear. My good friends at The Chimp Store offer us a closer look below. The collection will be available here in early Feb.
After preview images of the newest addition to the Amos Toy line appeared online some time ago, the James Jarvis created Caleb has finally hit shelves in the UK. Star of his own online comic strip, ‘The Wisdom of Caleb’, he comes in 2 colourways with a selection of T-shirt prints, including a few references you might be pretty familiar with.
Caleb comes in at around 20cm tall, in white/red/blue and black/green blue and is one of my favourite vinyl releases in a long time. The ‘Sausages’ and ‘BARE’ Calebs, with their Supreme and Bape references respectively, are my particular favourites and I’m stoked to add them to my collection. James Jarvis is an illustrative genius and it’s great to see more of his work in the Amos Toys line.
Caleb is available now, online and in-store at The Chimp Store, but I’d warn you… The first batch sold out in record time, and these aren’t likely to be around for much longer, so be quick.
