Would you let me start off my chatting about one of my favourite Manchester based brands? *rhetorical question, this is my blog.
As a proud Northener and a recent ‘expat’ to Manchester (originally from the not-so-exotic Preston), local brands are something I love to support.
Native Youth is the flag I’m waving today. They’re based in Manchester, 100m from my flat, and with a family history dating back to the industrial cotton mills that made Manchester the city it is today. Fast forward to the 21st century and Native Youth are creating incredibly slick high-fashion styles at great prices! I met some of the team and head designer a couple of weeks back and they gave me a great insight of future plans for the brand – an exciting 2018!
My new favourite jumper: The Solomon. Purple isn’t something I’d naturally be drawn to.. but I saw this lil number, and thought “wow! she’s a catch!” I’ve worn her (yes, I’m that attached) to a few events and she’s just PERFECT for the winter chill. Thick, warm and stylish as hell, I’ve been complimented every time I’ve worn this.
Here I am wearing the Native Youth – Heyes Sherpa Denim Jacket. Unfortunately this is now sold out – and for good reason – but it’s still an example of the style being on point.
Total outfit cost: £110
Green Parka: £35 – Asos
T-shirt: £5 – Next (sale)
Trousers: £40 – Native Youth
Trainers: £30 – Reebok (sale)
So, if you’ve not already… go check Native Youth out.
A great brand. Great team. Great prices.
