Strong Island Clothing Co
My good friends at Strong Island have just released their Summer 2016 collection and for some reason they let me loose to prance around the beach showing it all off, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to share it with you all.
The collection mostly consists of t-shirts, hoodies and sweaters, but also features accessories such as a bright yellow pac-a-mac (festival essential), wooden sunglasses, and a picnic blanket - complete with beautifully hand-cut leather carrying straps.
You might have noticed me talking about Strong Island a bit more often here on my blog lately. That's because I joined the team at the beginning of the year as a contributing writer to their online magazine. I love my hometown of Portsmouth & Southsea so the fact I get to join in with local events and play a small part in promoting the creative scene of the city makes me very happy.
Strong Island acts primarily as an online resource for music, the arts and all things cultural within the city of Portsmouth. In 2010 they began designing and selling a couple of t-shirts to a handful of friends, and since then it has expanded into an independent store and exhibition creating brand new collections on a bi-annual basis.
This summer they've released a collection that stays true to their roots with the same high quality that their customers have learned to love, but with added attention to detail. The graphic tees showcase a combination of minimalist embroidery and detailed designs, all with the classic but subtle Strong Island branding.
