The video features a skater with a distorted face, and a reel of some of the most psychedelic footage I’ve seen since my last acid trip. Many have criticized the brand for a variety of reasons, but I have to respect them for their creative marketing campaigns, a la the Kate Moss/Supreme billboards plastered all over the Lower East Side of New York. Check out the video below, and the new collection releases 2/23 in the NY & LA locations.

Crazy patterns and prints fill the collection, peep the dopeness below and after the break and click here to view the entire collection: (more…)
