DC014 | BEHIND THE BRAND x ALTUS APPAREL
Unisex apparel company based out of #Manchester, mixing music & streetwear.
All their products have a relaxed & contemporary feel . Taking inspiration from music, #nightlife culture, the streets & community. Altus Apparel celebrate creativity & all things real.
Starting out as a club residency, the brand is now committed to capturing the vibe around Manchester through streetwear – putting a contemporary twist on musically-influenced clothing.
“I’ve been doing a lot of street photography in and around Manchester, mainly around the canal in Castlefield. The street art has been something that has definitely inspired some of my recent designs and I’m pretty sure that will continue into future drops.”
To maintain the brand’s music-based values, Tom makes sure music remains at the heart of everything altus does. He immerses Altus in the scene by producing relevant playlists, promoting DJs and mixes, supporting events and gigs and sharing content on social media.
“I really hope that my interests and messages resonate with likeminded creatives. It’s a weirdly fulfilling feeling when someone buys a piece that you’ve designed. To say that someone holds similar values, or a common interest with you is one thing, but for someone to invest in a piece that I’ve created feels very special"
