You can hardly walk the streets of Glasgow without seeing Abandon Ship. The cult Scottish street wear company has went from being sold out boxes in a bedroom to international lifestyle brand. From New York to Berlin, London to LA – Abandon Ship has snowballed in the last 3 years before launching both Glasgow and London flagships earlier in the year.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Abandon Ship. It was the bat print tee (everyone remembers their first ASA.) From then I’d find myself popping in to store and lovingly stroking clothes (like a massive creep) and silently coveting away the snake print joggers and the printed ragalans (which I obviously needed as a dress. Obviously.) It may not quite pass the finger tip test (and let’s face it, who gives a fuck about arbitrary standards of respectable dressing) but it’s easily one of my new favourite things either with a pair of heels or lounging about the house.
Which is why I’m so super stoked about the launch of Abandon Ship Girls collection. They’ve dabbled before but this fully realised collection sees a line of tees, skirts and midi-dresses that are begging to be hanging in my wardrobe. The new tattoo flash makes an appearance (featuring pups and cats) as well as a pretty killer watermelon print, which I am clearly ALL UP IN.
The collection lands in Glasgow the 8th of July (before becoming available online) with a sweer launch party. It’s all drink and doughnuts coupled with hair transfers, temp tattoos and nail decals. Quite frankly I can think of far worse ways to spend my Tuesday night. I’ve already got my eyes on a few bits and bobs (tartan midi we should def become pals) so can’t wait to see it in the flesh and play dress up.
If you’re at a loose end on what to do with your Tuesday night (or really just fancy a kick ass time) then make sure you pop down to Princes Square next week and get your paws on the new line. See you hotties there?
