N1SQ – THE FIRST DROP
N1SQ is the unfazable new kid on the block representing a cross culture of streetwear with a laidback Scandinavian aesthetic – a brand that effortlessly upscales the casual street look in its own redoubtable style.
This first drop says everything you need to know about the brand: a carefully collated collision of bold prints, stylised surfaces and raw attitude, it makes quite the impact.
Starting at £20-25 the graphic prints combine unique embroidery, injection printing and zip details. Essential items include skinny fit denims with subtle internal branding, longline shirts designed to be paired with fitted joggers and teamed with longline wool bomber jackets – and cult pieces include the Colchester jacket and the longline knitted hooded zip-thru that opens upwards.
Elsewhere marl print neoprene, mesh and teddy-fleece and cut & sew add to the surface interest for a brand that goes much deeper: the arrow in the logo points to the northern roots of the brand and, in tattoo culture, it is a symbol of focus, power & direction.
You might say the brand has a foundation that No 1 Should Question.
