Marshall Artist Festival Essentials At 80s Casual Classics
Come rain or shine, our collection of Marshall Artist overshirts, tees, jackets, tops, shorts and bucket hats have you covered this festival season!
Marshall Artist was born in London EC1 in 2001. The past 15+ years has seen Marshall Artist become one of the best-loved casual clothing brands in the UK. Timeless pieces such as overshirts, tees, and lightweight jackets have been collection staples, featuring in several releases throughout the years. Versatile in nature, it is not uncommon to find casual clothing enthusiasts donning MA to various events. Summer is fast approaching and with the “sunssshiiiine” (shout out to Liam) brings music festivals, combat shorts, and of course the gold old bucket hat!
The first pick of our Marshall Artist essentials list comes in the form of the Molecular overshirt in teal. Marshall Artist overshirts have become one of the most popular styles from the British brand and this latest addition is made from a fluid nylon fabric to give it a unique finish. Features include a full zip fastening, pockets on the chest and sides, mesh lining, a drawstring waist, and Velcro fastening cuffs to ensure maximum comfort and protection from the wildly temperamental British weather.
Second on our list is another ‘Molecular’ piece that features a holographic MA logo for those wavy moments. The enlarged MA symbol comes in a variety of colourways to suit your style. MA tees are made from 100% luxurious cotton and is best worn either on its own on a hot summers day or as a layering piece underneath an MA jacket.
Needless to say that a defining piece rounding off the top three is the garment dyed Field Jacket in sulphur. Stand out features, aside from the explosive colour, include two chest pockets which are accessible via zips. The two-way zip feature allows for greater comfort while wearing the jacket. Furthermore Velcro cuffs allow for precision fitting much like the Molecular overshirt. Hidden features like a hood compliment an essential outdoor piece. The jacket is made from a fluid 100% polyamide fabric with a rustic crinkle effect.
Outside of the top three but nevertheless an essential item for any casual wardrobe is the Martial Artist funnel neck top coming in the iconic Breton stripe. The classic white and blue horizontal stripe, often associated with sailors, has become a quintessential casual clothing item, and Martial Artist has designed this iteration down to a T. The zip allows for greater comfort and stylistic expression, while the loud yellow interior provides a pivot point when building an outfit.
Next we have the garment dyed cotton shorts in Khaki, a fantastic summer colour grounding any expressive festival look you build. The shorts are made from 100% cotton and the intense dying process gives the shorts a unique aesthetic look and style every single time you wear them. Two large fastening pockets provide security for your valuables in busy atmospheres and spaces and drawcords on the hem of the shorts allow you to complete your style.
Crucially, as mentioned earlier in the first paragraph, we come to our final item. As accessories come, there is nothing more vital than a well-fitted hat. Well, Martial Artist has you covered there. The bucket hat is classic Madchester style, available in navy the MA iteration is perfect for protection from the elements and is a welcome addition to any style that includes any of the above mentioned items.
