Smalltalk ─ März 2014 Intruz
Smalltalk mit Paweł / Aren von Intruz aus Oswiecim, Polen.
Please introduce yourself…
We are Intruz. Classic street wear label, born and bread in Poland with international appetite since 2005. We are also a group of three good friends with heads full of ideas.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Our products reflect out lifestyle and hobbies so it’s safe to say it’s our lives and people around us that inspires us the most. Also sport and music as a vital part of our day to day life and in general everyone who works with us or support our team.
Do you work alone or do you collaborate with others? Any collaborations planned?
So far we’ve worked with US Starter and Japanese 7Union. You should definitely check our baseball cap collection with them. We also work with local creatives, tattoo artists and people involved in street art in general. Such a collaborations are great experience and we are looking forward to more opportunities like this.
How important is music while working on new stuff?
Music plays a vital role in our design especially while working on new collection. A lot of projects were inspired by classic hip hop or hardcore music lyrics and tunes we grew up with. That music shaped our taste and style of patterns and cuts.
What music is playing right now?
Black Flag – My War
Joey Bada$$ – Summer Knights
W.E.N.A – Nowa Ziemia
Name a current „anti-trend“.
We’ve noticed a general burst in startup brands with poor quality clothes and cheesy slogans.
Great labels we should know about?
Great blogs we should visit?
Go visit your local streetwear store, not a blog :)
