United arrows & sons and huf release capsule collection

by Stephen Garner

Japanese retailer United Arrows & Sons has teamed up with Huf on a new capsule collection called “Downhill 2.”

Spearheaded by United Arrows & Sons creative director Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, the limited-edition range of apparel and accessories draws inspiration from British ‘Mod’ subculture and the unique style of legendary skateboarder Matt Hensley, who can be seen modeling the collection alongside Huf founder Keith Hufnagel and team rider Justin Drysen.

Key pieces include a military-inspired MA-1 jacket and retro M-65 fishtail mod coat, both of which incorporate the Downhill Bar Towel along the left arm panel as a nod to Mods who wrapped towels around their sleeves in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Other highlights include the Splash long-sleeve button-up and bucket hat featuring a multi-colored paint splatter motif and the Accordion long-sleeve tee, a nod to Matt Hensley’s current position as an accordionist for the renowned Celtic punk band Flogging Molly.

The Huf x United Arrows & Sons collection is now available at HUF and United Arrows & Son’s flagship and online stores.
