XCVB is yet another independent gem

XCVB spring 13It has come to Hoodywink’s attention that there are some quite brilliant independent clothing companies carving out a niche with superb original designs.

XCVB is one such enigmatic brand. It heralds from Sheffield and has released its spring 2013 lookbook, which is an atmospheric cracker thanks to some ethereal photography by Georgina Marton and an omni-present faded green chair.

The new collection has XCVB’s signature understated styling with deconstructed designs – hinting at Native American influences – and simple colour choices. It’s sublimely a world away from the high street and a chance to say something individual about yourself.

Our only criticism is that no hoody is included in the spring collection to take the edge of the season’s cool evenings.

Check out the suitably ambiguous website and revel in an effortlessly relevant street brand.
