An Empire State of Mind

Style : Launching today as Topman's newest 'Premium Brand', Empire's Union is a forward thinking t-shirt brand that has come out of Paris, via London, since 2005.

The apparel is shaped out of the geometric of a star, finished with raw or finished edging and complete with an equally geometric design print. Unlike some brands that have an incredible concept but lack quality, Empires Union uses premium cottons for their t-shirts, which is all made in Europe.

There is a certain mixture of cultures in the inspiration of the brand, taking the ideals of England and mashing it with elements of Europe. However, the brand says that 'you express yourself through Empires Union, Empires Union does not project itself on you'. A refreshing view, no?


The side seams of the t-shirts make the star are a discrete but viable detail on all of the brands apparel, which, as regular readers will know, I am a huge fan of 'in the know' detailing eg. the shoulder seams on the Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme top-wear. Again with the quality, which I guess is why Topman picked them for a premium brand, is each design is silk-screened by hand onto the super fine, super soft cotton.

Each t-shirt is priced at £55, and the vests at £50, which can be viewed and bought here.
