Everything you’re after,
all in one place


As Elvis Presley sang, home is where the heart is. He wasn't wrong. In this case, the comfort of a cosy interior was Opening Ceremony's overarching inspiration for a snug autumnal collection.

Featuring abstract flower tees, everyday sweatshirts splashed with graphic lightbulbs and chairs with devilish faces (illustrated by New York designer Bráulio Amado) – AW21 embodies our safe haven as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.

Exploring the idea of "comfortable tailoring" as we venture from sofa to supermarket to swish cocktail bar, Opening Ceremony's relaxed silhouettes are the day to night remedy we've been searching for.

Georgia Kemball’s delicate jewellery designs read like a fairytale storybook: myths, magic, mysticism and teeny-tiny characters existing in a world of otherworldly power and protection. Naughty goblins resting from your neck, or miniature pixies from your ears, the London-based designer’s ethereal approach has found a legion of spellbound fans and, now, her latest collection is available on END – and it’s yours for the taking. So, step inside the rabbit hole and follow the path less trodden…

Goodbye, British summer – we hardly knew ye. But never mind, Apron Records are giving us one last knees-up with their latest capsule collection. Since Steven Julien established the label back in 2012, he has offered only the best in music of Black origin: from jazz and electronic to hip-hop and all the way back again. Made in the US and finished in London, Apron Records’ latest drop includes quality embroidered baseball caps and heavy cotton tees emblazoned with various iterations of the record label’s logo. So treat yourself! Summer’s pretty much over, but there’s still a few festivals knocking about, at least.

Remixed, reimagined, reinvented! Ahluwalia is back with a limited edition drop of re-designed signature pieces from the label’s AW21 collection, Traces. After three years, the London-based brand wants to show that design has no expiry date – that we can fall in love with key pieces all over again – in a sustainable fashion, obviously. So feast your eyes, and wallets, on Ahluwalia’s denim, track and graphic pieces brought to life all over again.

The heatwave might have subsided, but there's still life in this summer yet. Nightclubs have reopened their doors for the first time in 18 months, and we're ready to put our best fits forward. And bold ones at that. Ride the tie-dye wave wearing Levi's X Grateful Dead's colourful collection, go wild in Ganni's lemon satin tiger shirt, look fancy in Aries' Sacred Vulva Hawaian shirt, or stay cool in a low-key longsleeve from Browns X KLOSS' merch series designed in collaboration with founder Alec Maxwell's creative friends. Wherever you're going, be sure to go big, go bold, or go back into self-isolation at home.

In Johannesburg, Capetown, Durban and beyond, the Ebumnandini crew is much-loved because they’ve thrown the coolest parties. Core member Francesco Mbele also runs Franasonic – a deliciously retro multimedia project that has inspired bright and brash clothing. The new longsleeve T-shirt design “Black Women Fighting Apartheid Were the First Punks” was inspired by the 1956 Women’s March in Pretoria. 10% of proceeds will be donated to the Sonke Gender Justice organisation.
