Don't Assume collection

18.05.19 words by Will Dickson


Excited to announce 'DON'T ASSUME', our new 8-piece collection we've made with adidas Originals, dropping on May 25th. Also a long-standing tagline for NTS Radio, the name ‘DON’T ASSUME’ was borrowed from a free-jazz LP by singer Maggie Nicols & pianist Peter Nu, released on Leo Records in the late ‘80s.

The collection features NTS' very first full tracksuit, hoodies, shorts and football jerseys. Caribbean restaurant and Hackney institution Peppers & Spice gets a cameo as the football jersey sponsor. Catch it in adidas stores and via the NTS shop from May 25th.

We enlisted the help of NTS friends and fam to model the collection - all the artists featured will be presenting one-off shows on NTS in the week leading up to the drop. Check all the photos and broadcast details below:
