The Essence – Hip-Hop-Inspired Clothing from NYC

The Essence is a sharp and unique streetwear label hailing straight out of the heart of New York City.

Designed and manufactured by creator & founder Jonathan Goldberg, the popular U.S clothing brand bottles a life-time of ideas borne from years entrenched in New York’s artistic and musical cultures.

Items have been sold privately in the past to icons considered to be architects of hip hop culture, however, a full catalog of products will be offered for the first time in Autumn 2015.

The Essence’s custom-made, premium, leather & fabric jackets have been seen on the backs of hip hop legends Redman,  Smif n Wessun, Havoc of Mobb Deep and the Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon, with early UK customers counting DJ & presenter Yinka and hip hop cognoscenti Kish Kash.

The urban undercurrent of the collection was inspired specifically by New York City hip hop culture of the 1990s, that shaped the lives of a generation.

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, the world over.

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.
