Australian label Schwipe create luminous clothing that’s too hip for hipsters and too chilled for chillsters but sits in somewhere in between. The label packs the momentum of tsubi/ksubi with the experimentation of Limedrop, and a blatant disregard for political correctness similar to Tight Knickers. They’re the sort of well cut, finely styled threads that you’d wear to a Mystery Jets gig. Or a Dave Eggers reading. We like. [see also Social Suicide; Mr Bingo; Imaginary Foundation]
