Independent Leaders are definitely just that in a sea of drab, matchy-matchy urban labels and what’s more exciting than an upcoming street wear brand that prides itself on breaking the mould instead of simply trying to fit in. Influenced by the city of Rio, their collections are enthused with the colourfully wild and heated culture that Brazil is notorious for. Aimed at ambitious youths who embrace their freedom, Independent Leaders are allowing every shopper to own a piece of South America without having to leave the country.
Independent Leaders SS14 collection has waltzed straight off of Ipanema Beach with pieces dripping with various tropical prints. But these aren’t just the standard Hawaiian shirts your embarrassing uncle wears on a family holiday while he has a few too many by the pool! These are cool, stylish and let city dwellers take palm tree and toucan prints from the beach to the street. Thank god two pals got bored of their 9-5 in London and visited the city that never sleeps because their search for fun turned into something a lot more exciting!
