Announcing the “#COLDESTWINTER” Collection by The Incorporated

In Current on December 9, 2013 at 9:17 pm


Last week, we launched our #COLDESTWINTER week, releasing new content everyday to correspond to our Winter 2014 “Coldest Winter” collection release. Originally written as the brand’s manifesto, “This Is The Incorporated” was transformed into a compilation video made up of footage spawning back to the early days of The Incorporated (circa 2010). The releases include our Flannels video lookbook and “RIP Pimp C” Sweatsuits with a video and track premiere for Spoon’s “Everything Slow.”

Here is the press release:

Portland, OR – December 4, 2013- The Incorporated Clothing returns with their sophomore collection for Winter 2013, entitled “#COLDESTWINTER.”

Following the release of their Spring/Summer 2013’s “Straight from the Slums of ’89 and ’90” collection, the Northwest brand returns to test the limits of traditional street/sportswear. The pieces embody the theme of American history juxtaposed with pop culture and the resulting influence on the youth of the 90’s.

#COLDESTWINTER is an illustration of what it means to be young, unheard and hungry.”

The first pieces released are printed vintage flannels each a unique fabric and pattern, with one of 3 designs on the back.  The references range from fine art to graffiti to war, but all center around the “new” founding fathers of society. 

Released in memory of Chad Butler, who died December 4th, 2007, the “RIP Pimp C” Sweatsuits are a response to the growing use and promotion of the “purple drank” culture and the lack of actual medical information that is available to the youth.  By putting it on a sweatshirt rather than a bottle, we can incorporate important health education into an on-trend street wear garment. 

#COLDESTWINTER began on Dec. 2, with new content released every day to reveal the various new pieces.  

These products and more will be available on Dec. 9th and available for order for the remainder of 2013.  The #COLDESTWINTER lookbooks and more information can be found at http://www.theincorporatedclothing.com.

An introduction to the Rose City Circle

The Incorporated’s 15 Cents: An Introduction to the Rose City Circle

There’s more to this city’s fashion scene than what Brownstein or Armisen rock on Portlandia. Yes, not everyone wears horn-rimmed glasses and carries a separate bag for their bowling shoes. A few months back, this notion of ‘the other side of Portland fashion’ and its lack of exposure powered a few like-mined entrepreneurs into action. After some key contacts had been exchanged, four of Portland’s top streetwear apparel brands were scheduling weekly meetings in preparation to combine their forces for something exclusive, something big. Now, we at The Incorporated are pleased to announce to official kickoff event of the newest clothing collective to hit the streets of Portland.

In conjuncture with Portland Fashion Week, Rose City Circle will be hosting an evening at Harlem PDX on September 12. Following an exclusive VIP networking event for handshakes and introductions, doors will open to the public with guest DJ sets.

Did we mention there will be raffles with giveaway gear from each brand?

Together, Rose City Circle is Triibe Movement, The Incorporated, Bullē Classic and The Creators. While each brand brings a unique approach to apparel design, RCC’s goal is to combine resources and further cultivate themselves as the other side of PDX fashion. Oh, and of course host dope events for lovely people.

WHO? Triibe Movement, The Incorporated, Bullē Classic and The Creators
WHAT? An Introduction to the Rose City Circle
WHEN? Sept 12th, VIP Event 6-9pm, general admission 9-2am
WHERE? Harlem PDX (220 SW Ankeny St., Portland, Oregon 97204

We at The Incorporated now have a weekly column on a local fashion and lifestyle platform, EYES + EDGE. Our good friend Holly Hoover was kind enough to publish my nonfiction piece on the enigmatic chemistry between boys and trains, and you should check it out here.
