CITY STATES is a contemporary fashion brand founded in 2018 in London, United Kingdom. Born as a subcultural brand, their mission is to provide a centralised platform to collaborate with the most up and coming, dynamic and eclectic creatives across the globe.
A city-state, or polis, was the community structure of ancient Greece. These states prided and defined themselves through their individual qualities, yet also found harmony and strength in a shared identity. This is the foundation on which CITY STATES has built its model – mixing music, high fashion, design, youth culture, art and more, allowing them to move up and down the fashion spectrum.
To strike the perfect balance of iconography and exclusivity, the collections are co-designed with the collaborator and are made up of limited runs. The mission is to produce clothing with a global mindset that can be both worn or collected.
