686 Mike Shinoda Parka
Though he is chiefly known as the singer/songwriter/producer for Grammy Award-winning Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda is also a visual artist with a BFA and Honorary Doctrate from the Art Center College of Design. From album artwork to solo exhibits, the California native has even stepped into the realm of fashion design with his own line with DC Shoes. Continuing his foray into apparel, Shinoda links with perennial outerwear brand 686 to construct his very own parka that blends modern design aesthetics with technical fabrication to create a jacket that is as at home in the streets as it is on the mountain. The artistic musician designed all details on the above jacket, including its subtle camouflage pattern and the quilted hyena art on its interior. The 686 Mike Shinoda Parka will be produced in a limited run of 175 units only and will be available at select outlets in the very near future.
