Spotlight November: Educate Elevate Releases Winter Collection

London-based streetwear brand Educate Elevate are set to release their much-anticipated winter collection this week. What I love about this brand is their message: Educate the Mind, Elevate the Grind, and the importance they place on manufacturing in the UK.

Demonstrating even sharper designs than in 2012, their new collection moves away from the “in your face” bold branding on basic tees seen in the first collection, but keeps the much-loved EE beanies.

Creative directors Suzan and Faith say of the collection:

“The collection was heavily inspired by supergroup TLC and their oversized baggy colourblock clothing, we wanted it to capture the essence of the brand’s ethos despite the low-key logo branding.”

Consisting of eight new garments, the collections pans from panelled sweatshirts in green and purple tones, to cropped sweaters and doorknocker earrings. Without a doubt the key piece is a 90s inspired quilted bomber jacket, available in two colourways and featuring a strong “X” colour contrast back panelling.

My favourite piece in the collection is the Green Panelled Colourblock Sweater, £40.00 (below). Worn with leggings, hi-tops and a EE beanie, this sweater is the ultimate winter staple.
