“Death is the great equalizer…” – Mitch Albom
Designer Nicholas Raefski has taken this quote and centered a six piece collection around it. One of the standout pieces is knitted sweater of a man smoking while carrying a pistol, utilizing whites and neon colors to create the perfect storm of a garment. There is also a button down which depicts 1000 bullets, caked in blue highlights, cascading down towards the hemline. With the collection also having an innovative pair of 8 leg cargo pants, socks and a tee shirt, interpolating the vintage Newport iconography and slogan, this collection is full of things any fashionable individual would want.
In addition to this well-rounded collection is a stand-out we don’t see much of today: A custom shoe, fully equipped with a unique silhouette. Aptly named “The Stormtroopers“, this cookies and cream colored shoe adopts a unique lacing system as well as a sleek air bubble at the heel. It almost looks like a mishmash of a Nike Presto, Vapormax and an Osiris D3. Ultimately, this shoe is as unique and personal as this brand is and is the cherry on top of this perfect collection.
