A brand with a difference: Astray
Here at The Upcoming we are always on the look out for anything new and exciting and when we came across brand Astray, it certainly didn’t disappoint! Think dark, edgy and sexy, and you may be thinking along the right sort of lines! Founded by film director Ben Charles and Burberry model Oxford Nielsen, Astray is a new and exciting unisex brand we are sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from!
Both men bonded over a mutual passion for the dark and bizarre and this is clear to see throughout the designs that are inspired strongly by symbols from Haitian culture and the masking of mummering tradition. They are combined to create a truly unique, raw and enigmatic apparel brand and we predict it will be very popular among fashionistas!
Any of their items would be perfect additions to your wardrobe ,adding an urban vibe and effortless sexuality. So, surely this comes at a high price? Wrong! The collection that includes a select range of T-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories come at a very reasonable and affordable price. But this doesn’t mean it’s lacking in quality by any means. In fact, Astray pride themselves on their outstanding attention to detail and all garments are carefully designed to ensure the highest quality street wear is produced. They’ve even researched into the best fabrics to ensure they fall into all the right places, enhancing muscle and accentuating our curves! Well, we couldn’t ask for much more could we ladies!
Our favourite pick from the brand is this incredible bubble wrap coat! Unfortunately for us, it sold out within the first few days but with more to come we suggest you keep your eyes peeled! We think it’s the perfect addition to those festival outfits!
