Born in 1989, Triple Five Soul originated as a humble storefront in New York Cityâ€™s Lower East Side. Originally entitled with a tongue-in-cheek reference to one of the then-popular telephone party lines, T5S quickly became a focal point for a multi-faceted cultural movement. Exponentially increasing coverage in a wide range of fashion magazines, an uncanny and genuine popularity amongst this generationâ€™s cultural heroes, and the unorthodox establishment of a base of operations in Brooklynâ€™s then upcoming Williamsburg neighbourhood all contributed to Triple Five Soulâ€™s broad and fashion-forward visibility as leader of the street wear industry.
Spring 2007 features the leaner bottom with a voluminous top for girls. For guys it’s the short jacket with a lean bottom. Blazers are on the downswing, with military inspired short cotton jackets taking their place. Cotton bottoms are also coming back strong, there will be a huge variety of pants and shorts in a range of fabrics, lengths and styles, all with washed down, soft, vintage feel. Key themes for Spring 07 will be beach, surf and resort – it is a time when people want to get away. The colors and prints of the tropics will be very important. Continuing an already exciting expansion, Triple 5 Soul has ventured into new territory by launching a line of fashion footwear.
