3sixteen – Spring 2009
3sixteen is one of those brands that I’d always see in great stores like The Reed Space and never understand what was so special about them. More or less a tee shirt line with basic designs, all very dark and somewhat Gothic driven.
However in the holiday ’08 collection I was pleasantly surprised to see the direction that they were going, and now with this upcoming Spring ’09 preview I am convinced that 3sixteen has an entire new direction as a serious player in this game. Take a look.
The season is completely grown up with tons of nice cut & sewn pieces. I think they did a good job keeping the prep and proper all American look while still paying attention to detail and fine tuning the garments to perfection.
Check out a list of 3sixteen retailers on their site as the collection will be available soon.
