The return of the fash pack

That Thing pride themselves on leading the fashion pack, and their latest collection sees them waving the Bristol streetwear fashion flag more than ever.

Their latest collection is a cool mix of soft pastel pinks and peaches, mixed with monochromes and grey streetwear pieces which can be dressed up or down. The look is perfect for streetwear fashionistas, sportswear lovers and festival darlings alike, who want garms that are comfortable and functional, plus bold statement pieces with sharp That Thing graphics.

“We have a whole mixture of stuff,” explains owner Joh Rindom. “We have streetwear, sport-chic basics, sweatshirts and t-shirts. Lots of people have really wanted our extended length t-shirts, which is quite exciting.

“We have bespoke one-off and limited edition pieces,” Joh continues, “and we also have jackets and accessories, backpacks and loads of unisex pieces, so we have everyone covered!”

Following the launch of their menswear and interiors collections earlier this year, That Thing always seems to be busy, supporting Bristol’s creative scene and getting involved with Bristol fashion in a big way. There is always something on their agenda, so what’s next at That Thing headquarters?

“It’s always an exciting time of year,” says Joh. “We’ve got the festivals just around the corner with Love Saves The Day first up. We are dropping our festival wear in-store quite soon, so we are really looking forward to that. We take on around another ten designers in the summer months that just do festival wear.”

That Thing really get involved in the summer festival season, taking their clothing to the many festivals throughout the summer with their own fashion-loving, cocktail-sipping, glitter-themed stall. Look out for them wherever you are, and expect lots of fun, sparkles and glitter.

“At Loves Saves The Day we’ll have a big stall,” explains Joh. “We have a festival alter-ego to the shop: we are not just there trading as That Thing, we are there as The Fash Pack.

“We basically offer everything that you would find instore but with extra festival vibes: loads of glitter make-up, and lots of different individual brands that you might not necessarily find in the store.”
