- Navy Green Zipper, £80, La Fam
The highly sought after, Amsterdam based brand La Fam have announced their sample sale this Saturday (27th May). A quick weekend trip to ‘Dam doesn’t sound too bad, when you’re guaranteed first dibs on the brand’s unreleased hoodies, special colorways of bestselling tees and tracksuit sets featuring their college-inspired logos and stars. With their playful and creative streetwear fits backed & certified by the likes of NSG, Cat Burns, Ayra Starr and Rema, you can’t go wrong copping a couple pieces from LaFam. And if you can’t make the Eurostar down to the Zeedijk 60 store for the sale, we recommend some of their hardest pieces online: The black and grey star-logo jacket (£187), and the navy green La Fam college logo zipped hoodie (£80)

2. Zoe Padded Slides, £164, Hanifa
One of our favourite black-owned womenswear brands Hanifa continues to blaze the trail, this time with a vibrant selection of newly released Zoe Padded Slides (£164). You’re spoilt for choice with these cosy & delectable-looking, 1-of-1 colorways: Flame, Black, Pear, Bone, and Hanifa pink. It might be wise to get multiple for every summer function ahead. You’ll be joining the ever growing group of Hanifa-lovers including Ciara, Jodie Smith and Danai Gurira.
3. Reconstructed Jersey, £134, Spencer Badu
Get into this innovative “JERSEY CAMPAIGN” collection by rising design genius Spencer Badu. Inspired by the classic American football-jersey streetwear trend, Badu’s taken it to another level with padded shoulders, black stars honouring his Ghanaian heritage and a cropped length, perfect for some tasteful midriff or undergarment exposure! Or maybe you’re looking for a superstar performance fit like Kendrick Lamar – one of the many wearers of Badu’s pieces. Opt for the reconstructed jersey in either yellow, black, red or white (£134)

4. Carpenter Short jeans, £143, Flaneur
Jorts anyone? From baggy to flared, Amsterdam-made Flaneur have proven themselves as top-tier providers of the new wave of quality jeans. That being said, it’d be wrong to pass up on their pieces just released. Head over to their site, Flannels or Luisaviaroma for the latest. We’re feeling the carpenter short jeans (£143), cutoff jeans in blue denim (£143). While you’re at it check out their new pink logo, distorted printemps black t-shirt (£107) too. Then start thinking about the holiday to rock all this Flaneur drip to!

5. Denim two piece, Corteiz
This one comes from the masters of the exclusive drop and the newsworthy guerilla campaigns – Corteiz is dropping a capsule of pieces today at 7pm, including over twenty new products and six new t-shirts. There are some lovely summer ready pieces in there, and we particularly love this denim two-piece.
6. Georgina Johnson: The Slow Grind x Everpress “Big Love Tee”
You probably already know that here at GUAP we are all about supporting creatives in all industries. Multi-faceted artist, writer, designer and curator Georgina Johnson is using her creative outlets to speak on the hustle-culture in fashion that tends to “wear people down”. Having worked with the likes of Ib Kamara, Campbell Addy and fellow writer Tamara Clarke-Brown, Johnson has now released merch! Powered by a thought-provoking message and collection of essays and pieces from Johnson since 2020, The Slow Grind’s Big Love tee (£30) is a gentle and graphic reminder of all these works. Especially Georgina’s instruction to all creatives: “Give yourself more time to think. Be transparent, be conscious, be ethical, be fair”.

7. 6 in 1 denim jumpsuit, £150, Jaded LDN x Cowboys of Habit
Gen Z favourite Jaded Ldn have partnered with independent brand Cowboys of Habit to bring out a thirteen-piece modular collection. Designed to be multi-wear, the collection features changeable items such as reversible dresses and a 6 in 1 jumpsuit, our favourite piece. Described by the collaborators as “promiscuously charming, inspired by satire and millennial humour” and featuring tongue-in-cheek slogans, the collection is definitely fun.
