RSVP Gallery presents Travi$ Scott for the Fall ’14 Raf Simons/ Sterling Ruby collection. In an unprecedented move, Raf Simons puts his namesake label on hold for one season in order to drop the collaborative collection. For nearly a decade, Raf Simons has been a fan and friend of the contemporary artist Sterling Ruby. Ruby’s mixed media work is known for exploring counterculture, a shared interest between the two artists that led to a collection inspired by the punk scene of their youth. Ruby approached Simons’ classic silhouettes like a canvas, utilizing DIY techniques from punk aesthetics to create both hand dyed and mass-produced garments that bring their nostalgia for youthful rebellion to life.
It makes perfect sense that the artist collective that is BEEN TRILL would team up with avant-garde streetwear label KTZ. Both brands are known for pushing the envelope when it comes to streetwear to deliver the unexpected, and that is just what they did for the collaborative collection. Seamlessly blending both label’s aesthetics, the results are bold separates with Internet imagery, religious undertones, and most importantly glow-in-the-dark capabilities.
One of the most anticipated lines in our autumn/winter collection is T by Alexander Wang. The New York-based label, launched in the spring of 2009, is the sibling brand to Alexander Wang, yet it is in a league of its own. Each piece from the brand has a minimal, casual, downtown-cool appeal and carries Wang’s signature grunge style. You can expect high-quality cottons, loose-fitting tees, perfectly slouched sweaters, and plenty of repeated wear.
A Bathing Ape is no stranger to collaborations, and this time around we’re excited to see the Japanese brand blend with one of America’s most iconic names, Coca-Cola. The anticipated capsule collection seamlessly combines both companies’ aesthetics, BAPE’s iconic prints with Coca-Cola’s trademark red and vintage graphics. A Bathing Ape x Coca-Cola capsule collection offers products that encompass all aspects of a person’s life, from clothing to a drinking glass and even a yo-yo.
He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation. The Second Collection by Fear of God is a refined extension of their first collection. Featuring essentials that can be worn alone or in layers, the collection features a wide range of pieces that are reminiscent of not just 90’s youth culture, but of England’s working class in the 80’s.
