Block Apparel – Streetwear Collaboration

Studio Twwo have recently teamed up with Block Apparel to collaborate on a streetwear design project.

We have created five unique designs which have been individually screen-printed, onto high quality cotton t-shirts here in Manchester.

There are limited number of each design; which are all based around urban clothing brand ‘BLOCK‘; an independent urban streetwear brand, based in Manchester.

One of a kind clothes design…

This collaboration came from a shared interest in Urban Landscapes, inspired from visiting cities all around the world from: New York to New Delhi. It is the habitat of the modern human, a space we have created by manipulating the earth and it’s resources. The designs were originally hand drawn in pencil, with buildings taken from global skylines and fitted together to create organic and abstract shapes. The logo is inspired by the footprint of a building or a block, with angles and perspective giving the illusion of scale and the vanishing points you see when looking at a large building or structure.

Here at Studio Twwo and at Block Apparel, we thought what better to adorn urban streetwear than the buildings and streets themselves? As we are a reflection of our environment…

All t-shirts are high-quality cotton from Fair Wear, an ethical clothing producer ‘Ethical Trade & Justice for Workers’.

We collectively believe that fashion & streetwear should and can be both ethical and affordable…
