Speak the language of British music and heritage with Religion
It's time to immerse yourself in cool. Religion's men's line is unassailable in terms of style and underground energy. From tees that teem with attitude to jackets that really stand out from the crowd, get ready to tune up your wardrobe with untamed vivaciousness.
Bring a touch of the sacred to your basics
Religion is all about elevating your wardrobe staples. No tee from their range will ever be boring, bland or predictable. We're talking fiercely bold artistic prints, and challenging the expected limitations of those shapes. Stock your wardrobe with these and every outfit – no matter how simple or low-key – will be transformed into something bold and thrilling.
You can expect no less from their line of sweaters, either. Comfortable, durable and well-constructed? Sure. Full of daring design choices and surprising suaveness? Definitely. Dark and muted colours allow the graphics to take centre stage. Pair with tracksuit bottoms for a splash of laid-back urban attitude, or team with skinny jeans if you need an outfit that flies just about anywhere you'd ever want to go.
Music is in every piece by Religion. Whether it's in a lyric that inspired a new design, a nod to the British artists that influenced and popularised so many of the brand's styles, or just a vibe that the clothes give off, the legacy and love of music define them.
Lyrically inspired, artistically inclined, supremely cool
This is fashion for people who are bored of the everyday. It's in the name; Religion is about transforming your looks into something transcendent. Their vest tops are a great way to project confidence and strength. It's not just the lack of sleeves that make them stand out, though, it's the outstanding, edgy designs. We particularly love the praying skeleton collection, with its iconic logo depicting a skeleton kneeling in prayer. Provocative stuff.
Silhouette is all-important when building an outfit. With that in mind, why not try a tapered-fit jean? The narrow leg contrasts with the wider waist, drawing the eye while retaining breadth. For a narrower overall impression, skinny jeans are a metropolitan and modern classic, and for good reason. They pair wonderfully with a whole host of other pieces, and this makes them an indispensable and versatile part of any wardrobe.
Religion is the archetype of a modern British fashion brand, having grown up around the club scene in the '90s in East London. The influence on the clothes is undeniable. They're absolutely dripping with the kind of cool that carries your party spirit through the night and into the early hours.
Clothes that never apologise for being what they are
Every piece in Religion's collection is unique, loud and original. That's something you can count on. Combine distressed denim jeans or shorts with floral patterns that flow over the shoulders or sides of a tee, each visual element emphasising and accenting the others. Or keep it low-key with long-sleeved plain shirts, and let the rest of your outfit do the talking. A gradient design on tracksuit bottoms gives a futuristic feel, perfect for pairing with darker items.
In terms of outerwear, look to the brand's redefinition of the classic coat, featuring diagonal lines that slant your silhouette in an unexpected but attractive way. When the weather calls for something a little lighter, a light jacket is the way to go. We're totally into the high collar and broad shoulders. Even the tracksuit jacket gets an exciting, radical redesign.
