Of course, I did a collection like this. I mean have you seen my closet? To be honest, you would think I actually don’t own as many tees as I do because of the number of button-ups, slacks, and fabrics made of tweed that I own. I couldn’t help myself. I had to figure out a way to tie both my loves together and what better way to do that than to take colors from that era, graphics that heavily resemble the past, and put them on tees, kicks, and sweatshirts?
I’ve been asked, “Why the 1940’s”? Have you seen black style around that time? The Harlem Renaissance Era was the entry to New York's black style. It was our grandparents' way of stepping on the scene in attire no other can wear better. The era was booming with style, good music, and culture much like where we are right now. Timeless and perpetuated by all races.
This October we’ll be teaming up with DJ Dick At Night - yes we know how that sounds, to throw the ultimate ode to one of the best eras our culture has seen. We’ll be celebrating with a Halloween party, and of course, everyone is required to pull up in their best 1940’s aesthetic.
In the meantime add some of these to your closet. Below are a few of our favorites from the new collection.
