StreetwearTalk’s BrandWatch series brings you fresh styles and wardrobe-worthy additions from little-known names in the streetwear world. This installment showcases Junkbox Apparel, an independent UK retailer with comfortable, colorful pieces that appeal to the adventurer in all of us.
There is nothing in the world quite as liberating as heeding the call to adventure. Whether it’s going to an entirely new locale or even something as simple as taking a different route home, trying something new sparks feelings of curiosity and excitement unlike anything else.
As an ode to that thrill of adventure, Junkbox Apparel was born.
The Junkbox Apparel Story
Unlike the wilder origins of other independent fashion brands, Junkbox Apparel has a much simpler story to tell.
Junkbox was established in 2013 as the offshoot clothing brand for an independent boutique called The 2nd Floor. This Cheshire-based store sold a wide variety of pre-loved and recycled items such as decorations, accessories, and stationery. Over time, Junkbox would eventually expand to sell to customers online, bringing their distinct aesthetic to customers around the world.
Always Ready For Adventure
Keeping in line with The 2nd Floor’s indie aesthetic, Junkbox Apparel’s selections consist of comfortable clothing pieces as well as a variety of accessories including bags, hats, and jewelry. Themes revolving around board sports and travel, from “Surf Club” to “Wanderlust“, tie these capsule collections together.
As an eco-conscious lifestyle brand, recycled fabrics and materials define Junkbox Apparel. On each piece of clothing, bold, silk-screened graphics establish the capsule’s central theme. Tastefully-selected color palettes then top off each collection to create highly versatile pieces that will always be ready for your next big getaway.
