Reebok Classic have gone all nineties northern council estate on us again with their FW16 drop: The Vector. Oversized sportswear was religiously adopted in the nineties and it turns out the aesthetic is pretty similar nowadays, too.
Initially designed for 90s football icons, the Vector range represented much more than gear to train in & was embraced by multiple subcultures and movements, markedly across the rave and hip-hop scenes.
Keeping the noughties influences in mind, the new gear is made up of silhouettes that came to define that decade. The extensive apparel collection has been produced in the signature Vector colours of red, white and blue: colours that encapsulate the 90s look through a contemporary lens.
For the release, Reebok Classic teamed up with two of the newest cultural influencers, each individually carving out the movements of tomorrow. Both model Anais Gallagher (Noel and Meg’s daughter) and performer Raleigh Ritchie, also known as Jacob Anderson, feature in the new season’s look book and campaign which pulls on 90s streetwear references, set against a brutalist urban backdrop. A council estate, basically.
