Wrung ● Russel t-shirt


Wrung just delivered its latest collection to shops so it was mandatory that I had to post something from this brand from Paris. I was just talking about it the other day: the direction of the brand is really clean. It’s not easy to represent properly your underground roots related to graffiti and real hip hop but this brand somehow maintained the connection with the street people while at the same time it evolved in a contemporary and sharp way.

Take this Russel t-shirt that Michela P is wearing. I can read between the lines and the outcome is that such name comes from the brother of Reverend Run, Russell Simmons, the co-founder of Def Jam Recordings and of one of the most successful brands during golden age hip hop era: Phat Farm. Our man is known for his preppy style that can easily be reconnected to this clean t-shirt. Here there is a personal interpretation of that color block trend that took streetwear and sportswear by storm. Entirely navy blue on its back, this tee alternates an almond brown band to a light khaki band with a strong branding in the middle and a woven label on its sleeve. The cotton has a very soft hand and the collar is low as you and me like.

Next thing you should do now is to get in touch with Nitro Distribution and ask for the nearest Wrung dealer in Italy. But before you do so, don’t forget to follow Wrung Italy page on Facebook and @wrungitaly on Instagram to get familiar with the realness that this brand represents effortless.
