Following the success of our sample sale earlier this month, we decided to host a Summer Pop Up, selling some of our most coveted styles. Here are some of the pictures from last weekend. Underground will be at Brick Lane again this weekend.

ON THE UNDERGROUND RADAR: COMICS UNMASKED EXHIBITION

Posted by & filed under News.

The British Library‘s new exhibition, Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK, traces British comic’s tradition back to its origins in the Victorian age to today’s digital innovators.

Featuring iconic names such as Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum) and Posy Simmonds (Tamara Drewe), Comic Unmasked showcases works that explore how British comics have become a medium to address politics, gender, violence, sexuality and drug-taking.

Co-curator John Harris Dunning says, “This show is a call to arms – we’re trying to encourage creative disobedience that challenges the status quo. Comics have never been more influential.”

The exhibition is open until 19 August 2014. Don’t miss it!

Underground X Pringle of Scotland SS15 at LC:M

Posted by & filed under News.

Pringle of Scotland debuted their SS15 collection at London Collections: Men on Monday. For a second year, Underground collaborated with Pringle for the show’s footwear.

It was a privilege to work with the company, which celebrates its 200th anniversary next year. This season’s collection is inspired by the man on the street as much as it is the 60s and 80s golfwear of Pringle’s past. Massimo Nicosia, the man at the helm of design, told Hunger TV, “I do not like nostalgic approaches that look exclusively to the past. Mixing yesterday and tomorrow, tradition and innovation – that is what I try [to do].”

Underground’s Alice designed the loafers, inspired by Pringle golfwear but nodding to the creepers that make up a part of our own heritage. The line features loafers in black, navy and black, and white grain leather.

The limited edition range will be available next year.
