Inspired by its board sports heritage, Animal is a British lifestyle brand creating clothes and accessories for those who share a passion for adventure. They’re a free thinking lot, designing products for like-minded individuals who love nothing better than heading out there with a group of friends, as well as collaborating with riders and artists for unique collections.
The folk at Animal say they’ve long since had a love of Brighton and are stoked to have set up shop here at Churchill Square. Heading into their brand new store you’ll get a first look at the New Season Collection, featuring textured knits, graphic tees with clean lines and subtle branding, alongside hoodies and sweats with an urban edge. Now summer is drawing to a close, there are also great sales offers for that final warm-weather fix, including 50% off selected lines.
Spacedust full zip hoody: £55; Allex beanie: £16; Swing dress: £55; Ines boot: £70
Longtide graphic tee: £20
As the colder weather approaches, Animal Outdoor Division will be dropping in-store. Animal tell us this is a collection inspired by their local beaches and forests, combining technical detail with lifestyle pieces to create clothes for those who love battling the elements. Brighton dwellers will also be keen to know that the new shop will stock a range of Animal wetsuits. Their suits for Winter 16, featuring their very own A-Flex Pro neoprene are looking pretty slick for those cold water surf days.
Thinline Thinsulate shirt: £75
Phoenix wetsuit 5/4/3: £150
Creative design and self-expression is an essential part of Animal’s heritage. They keep it fresh with their own team of super-talented in-house artists who create amazing illustrations across their men’s, women’s and children’s ranges. Animal also love to team up with local artists, photographers and designers, to form unique collaborations. Creativity can come from anywhere and they recognize that, like Brighton, their south coast home is a melting pot of talent. This season don’t miss out on two capsule t-shirt edits for men, featuring incredible work by tattoo artist Leon Morley and surf photographer Dan Hunter.
We reckon this brand is spot-on for Brighton, so head over and check it out.
