ROSE IN GOOD FAITH X ED HARDY
A HIGHLY ELEVATED TAKE ON ED HARDY, THE ICONIC TATTOO-INSPIRED BRAND KNOWN FOR ITS BEDAZZLING AND MAXIMALISM.
“The idea of the modern millennial as I see it, and why nostalgia is so imperative from a cultural perspective, is I think we as millennials are the most referential of our child-like selves, and see the least amount of stratification between us as kids and teenagers, and as young adults. Consequently, a lot of this connectivity has to do with our constant access to information; so in a way, ROSE IN GOOD FAITH plays into this notion of being haunted by nostalgia.”
A DESIGN LANGUAGE REFLECTIVE OF PRE-CONCERT AMBIENCE; STEEPED IN THEMES OF GRIT AND DECONSTRUCTION.
“Violence is applicable as a form of aggressive self expression, and can be a positive act; especially in the context of the mosh-pit. It’s this notion of unadulterated human emotion. The angst we all possess can be distilled to its core elements, and through the lens of this collection, create a vibrancy, and sense of raw energy.”
ROSE IN GOOD FAITH X JNCO
RE-INTRODUCED THE CULT LABEL JNCO BACK INTO THE CONVERSATION THROUGH A VIRAL COLLABORATION IN 2017.
“The collection explored a fundamental memory of my teenage years, which was parking, and listening to music in my favorite parking lot adjacent to a concert venue I frequented. This of course combined with a deep love for Japanese import-tuning.”
