Countdown to Capsule: No Mas

Filed under: Designer Discovery, Fashion Indie, Indie Man - 19 Jan 2008

The best labor is always the labor of love, and I’m sure no designer knows this better than Chris Isenberg of No Mas. The journalist turned sportswear designer stuck with what he knew when he started the label back in 2004. Creating items that are neither trend driven, nor trendy, he has been able to parlay his passion for sports into a label that knows no age or season.

But don’t be confused; although the brand is stocked by stores notorious for carrying some of the biggest names in streetwear, not by any means does the label fall into that category. He doesn’t ‘do’ streetwear. Actually, its quite the opposite, the Oxford graduate tells me of his line, whose very marketable nostalgia keeps orders pouring in from boutiques like Bodega, and The Reed Space.

When Chris left the magazine world in 2002, not being able to find an outlet for his tone, and the subject matter that appealed most to him. It wouldn’t be until 2003 when he found a new medium with which to tell his stories: “During that time, I found this old picture of Muhammed Ali when he was Cassius Clay,right before the Sonny Liston fight in 1964. He was wearing this t-shirt that had this script “Cassius Clay” on it that I just felt was so cool, and I thought it was so much a part of this amazing moment– and then, the name was so charged. So, I felt like it was really a part of the story, and I just wanted to have one of those shirts for myself to wear.”
