Born out of the three elements (youth culture, street style and undying passion) that make up today's pivotal music and culture scenes comes The Essence.
The Essence is a sharp and unique streetwear label, hailing straight out of the heart of New York City.
Designed and manufactured by creator and founder Jonathan Goldberg, the popular U.S clothing brand bottles a life-time of ideas and affective participation, born from years entrenched in the thick of New York's transient artistic and musical cultures. A timeless and classic range of clothing that's built to last, The Essence represents the drive of creative individuals with an unwavering and never ending passion.
With signature staples- such as their trademark Big Apple 1979 red leather baseball jacket, or their Wu-Tang tribute 'Shaolin Chessboxing 1993' black leather/fabric mix jacket – The Essence offer a timepiece of clothing that will want to be revisited again and again, no matter the direction that time and cultures move forward.
With The Essence slowly making waves outside of their NYC home, now is the time - much like the musical imports that the city has delivered over the past 4 decades - for the brand to make their mark on global popular culture at large.
