Back with another collection the team at Cav Empt released their Fall/Winter 2017 lookbook today. While the spring/summer collection had a club and rave theme, this one takes a more pedestrian approach to showing the clothes. The photography is reminiscent of street style focused with what appear to be street cast models. As for the clothes themselves, the full range of bombers, parkas, sweats, hoodies, graphic tees and even bags are represented. Longtime fans of the label will have plenty to choose from with both heavily graphic items as well as simpler tonal or textured items.

In 1999 the Marxist academic collective Krisis Group published an essay entitled “Against Labor, Against Capital”. In it the authors argued that due to increasing automation a society based on labor was quickly becoming obsolete. Instead of looking to free workers from their oppression, as traditional Marxism espoused, the goal should be to end the labor society entirely. The only reason the world had not yet realized this was because of the economic and political elite, who have pacified the masses with “Silly fancy goods, designed to create the illusion of a full life”.

Eighteen years later, this phrase has appeared as a recurring motif in T-shirts, jackets, and hats in the Spring/Summer 2017 season of the streetwear brand Cav Empt. At first glance, it seems to be nothing more than another example of capitalism’s ruthless drive to commodify even the thoughts and actions of its opponents- just a more advanced version of a Sex Pistols shirt at H&M, in other words. Yet a closer look at Cav Empt’s history reveals that while garnering praise for their alluring graphics and uniquely cut and sewn garments, designers Sk8thing and Toby Feltwell have embedded a radical critique of consumer society into their clothing from the beginning. Cav Empt’s Spring/Summer 2017 season is the apex of a project that has been inherent in their clothing since its inception; an attempt to challenge the wearer into thinking seriously about the act of fashion fandom, desire and consumption under late capitalism.

CE SS 2017 from c.e on Vimeo.

C.E. has been known to release a video previewing each season and spring/summer 2017 is no exception in that regard. This time the film taps directly into club culture with a rave scene playing out with models rocking outfits from the collection. The music comes by way of Trilogy Tapes (the track feature EMG “Mother Funk”. I always thought C.E was a streetwear label that paired perfectly with nightlife and this video confirms that fact. Look for items to drop on the C.E. website as well as stockists including END CLOTHING and Well Gosh.

C.E SS 2016 from c.e on Vimeo.

C.E brings new light to it’s spring/summer 2016 collection with an eye-catching video shot using 4k drone footage. The clip is voyeuristic in nature and pieces together aerial shots and surveillance type camera work. The soundtrack sounds like it’s straight out of a black mirror episode and the fast paced editing is a good accompaniment to the layered collage graphics often employed by the brand.
