The music festival season is upon us and here at Foxberry Boys HQ we couldn't be more excited about it because music is art and so is fashion, right!

We are looking forward to Coachella, Glastonbury, Wireless, V Festival and Lovebox…

If you’re heading to a festival this summer, fashion is a great opportunity to be playful and try something new, because anything goes.

So let’s do a quick wardrobe check. Here is a fashion guide on the must haves and accessories.

Bum Bag

Fellas a bum bag accessory is not just for the ladies. We all need to make sure at the end of the night, we still have our wallet, keys and most importantly our mobile phones. So up your style game because a bum bag is good investment and we have highlighted some of our favourites below.

Footwear

If the festival is lit, you will be on your feet all day.  A cool comfortable trainer is a must. However, if you are a proud trainer collector, we would suggest you leave your best at home and opt for a classic pair of Nike, Adidas, Vans or Converse that can easily be replaced because festivals can get quite messy.

Tops

As they say ‘Suns out, Guns out’. If your confident you can wear an on trend pattern print Cuban/Hawaiian short sleeve shirt or tie dye t shirt is definitely the look for you.

Although, if you have spent a lot of time in the gym during autumn/winter and you are feeling yourself, then it is all about the sleeveless statement t shirt or better still a vest. 

Eyewear

Bring a bit of Miami to your festival outfit through eyewear. Why not try a tinted round or hexagon sunglasses to upgrade your look. With so many choices, we managed to narrow it down to a few favorites.

Shorts or Jeans

Long story short - If it is hot then bring out your shorts. Knee-length denim options are a good way to go.

Still, keep in mind that festivals are a great opportunity to be a bit more playful with your fashion choices. So search for different colors or shorts with prints.

Headwear

If you haven’t already, get yourself a Foxberry Boys Snapback and make a real statement. With so many to choose from, why not get your hands on our new florescent classic Signature snapback that can be found on our website.

FA Vase Wembley Finalist Cray Valley PM looking relaxed post kick off

Speaking to the Cray Valley PM players ahead of the biggest game in the clubs history. We asked how they manage to contain their excitement at reaching the FA Vase Final. Francis Babalola said “Players prepare in different ways, I like wearing our club tracksuit it makes me feel comfortable and I usually compliment it with fresh trainers and a cool baseball cap. I also like to zone out by listening to music on my apple air pods”.

Lose the fear of being different

All Eyez On Me Tupac Biopic Movie Shows the Resurrection of Early 90s Streetwear Fashion

upload.jpg

First of all we just want to say straight off the back Foxberry Boys thoroughly enjoyed watching the 'All Eyez On Me' biopic movie of Tupac Shakur. And cast members Demetrius Shipp Jr (Tupac Shakir) and Kat Graham (Jada Pinkett) did a great job playing these roles. Foxberry Boys are a massive fan of the late Tupac Shakur and watching the resurrection of US streetwear fashion such as Karl Kani and Walker Wear clothing brought back fond memories. We remember learning about Tupac in the early 90s watching him feature in a track by Digital Underground called 'I Get Around' on MTV cable box set channel programme called 'Yo! MTV Raps' . Tupac eventually branched off to be a solo artist, with most of Tupac themed songs revolving around hardship and social issues within the inner cities.

Tupac very much felt he was the voice of the people and what he stood for inspired the youths of today and most of his music is still relevant in today's society. in the early days we quickly noted Tupac's love for streetwear and his snapback he would wear backwards throughout most of his career which can be seen throughout his biopic movie.

The 90s saw the introduction of the 3 sided embroidery snapback merchandise during this decade because of the rise of HipHop and Rap music. This was heavily influenced by the artists who used to wear their snapback to the back.

Since then the snapback still remains an essential staple piece accessory within the modern day consumers wardrobe for everyday use.

Inspired by the early 90s HipHop music genre and streetwear fashion Foxberry Boys have designed a collection of quality 3 sided embroidery snapbacks of our own which can be purchased at £29.99 www.foxberryboys.co.uk giving our customers that stylish and edgy look with today's fashion contemporary trend.

Foxberry Boys definitely gives the 'All Eyez On Me' Tupac biopic 4 stars and the only reason why it wasn't a 5 star is because it was hard to squash his entire life into a 2 hour movie and most of all their will only ever be one legendary Tupac Shakur.

A Review of LFW 2016 Highlights

True to British form - the weather was a little over cast, but nothing would stop the hype surrounding London Fashion Week. The atmosphere was definitely unexplainable in the capital that has inspired the collection of Foxberry Boys and brought many fashionistas from around the world together to inspire one another and to pay respect to the craft of talented designers.

So we decided immerse ourselves in the atmosphere, connect with fashion enthusiasts on the streets of London who dare to break boundaries in social conceptions of dress code and support the well known designers and those upcoming coming through University and start ups.  

The demand for menswear is booming and it's all due to the rise of style smart consumers, for whom are more likely to buy accessories to give their outfit that personalized touch. 

Therefore Foxberry Boys decided to mingle with, and check out the cap game of the street fashionistas and the talented catwalk designers showcasing their accessory collection.

With very little time to stop and eat, we visited Carnaby Street, Brewers Street Car Park, Grand Connaught Rooms and London Spitafields Market. Inspired by some talented artwork and craft, for me Allan Vos luxury underwear and Victor Wong sunglasses collections were my favourites. Victor Wong sunglasses collection was definitely a firm favourite. The contrast between the garments and eyewear. The designs had edge, the collection was presented to seamless precession to music and the models wearing the eyewear were carefully chosen to represent the look.

Foxberry Boys - #wearitwednesday

The other day I was inspired to write this blog because of Mr David Beckham himself. Now who on this planet does not admire David Beckham, if not for his footballing ability, then it has to be for his swagger. And for this later reason I am acknowledging him seen wearing the above Canada Goose Hybridge Lite Outdoor Jacket David wore in his football documentary 'For The Love Of The Game'. These jackets are great for our British weather conditions, keeping you warm in the coldest months. Although this picture was taken of David in Iceland during the fly on the wall documentary, I believe his effortless sense of style and the functionality of the clothing suits the hustle and bustle lifestyle of London. This Hybridge Lite Outdoor Jacket retails online at www.canada-goose.com or can be purchased in London stores such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Harrods at £449.95. Below we can show you how you can get the look for a fraction of the price.
