SBc Spaces: anumberofnames SS14 Press Day

It's Spring/Summer 2014 Press Day season again. I often struggle to get to London when they occur but this time I was lucky to be able to time it to make it for a couple. Kicking things off is the anumberofnames press day. I have a very personal relationship with the guys at anon. In the many years that I have known them they have been there for me from day one. Whenever I walk into their showroom my eyes light up like a kid in a candy store and this time was no exception. I feel completely in my element amongst the various brands that they represent. From Billionaire Boys Club to Mr. Bathing Ape and C.E. The list is endless. I have been wanting to do an SBc Spaces feature for the anon showroom for quiet some time now and this was the perfect occasion. So here we go..

I'm always envious of these ICE-CREAM cushions which are basically blown up versions of the graphics the brand has used in its collections throughout the years.

Native Sons Eyewear seem to be a new addition to the brands anon manage,  I surely haven't noticed them before. The Japanese brand sure has some fantastic detailing and the quality is evident from the moment you pick them up.

The Billionaire Boys Club collection of headwear was looking strong as always, and an interesting fact is that most of it is designed within the agency itself! Injecting some fresh young British talent into the collection.

One of my favourite brands Human Made by NIGO® is always setting the bar. Meticulously re-created pieces from NIGO's intensive archive of vintage pieces. Each more beautiful than the other.

The attention to detail in the showroom is second to none..

You can't go wrong with a bit of anon humbug candy! I'm hooked.

With the popularity of baseball apparel these days if you are looking for the real deal you can't get any better than Seattle based Ebbets Field Flannels.

In all it was a great start to my trip to London. Craig and his team had put together a brilliant day showcasing the best brands from across the globe. There's a lot more that I could not share for obvious reasons but as you can see from the images above it was definitely worth the visit. I would like to thank everyone at anumberofnames for having me on the day, and keep up the fantastic work. Can't wait to see you guys soon.
