New York charity program ART START is now supported by the collaborative efforts of a streetwear design quartet — jeffstaple of Staple and Scott Sasso of 10.Deep from the East Coast, and Keith Hufnagel of HUF and Michael “Mega” Yabut of Black Scale from the West Coast. “This collaboration was brought to life through a simple conversation that started with three other designers that I greatly respect,” says jeffstaple, founder and creative director of Staple Design. “We not only represent both coastlines of America, but also represent the many facets of street culture. We are constantly inspired by these streets and wanted to find a way to give back by supporting Art Start, an organization that we greatly admire for their tireless efforts.” Available at select retailers on Black Friday, November 29, the collaborative Art Start collection between Staple, 10.Deep, HUF, and Black Scale includes a varsity jacket and a snapback cap. The Art Start Varsity Jacket features a melton wool outer, PU leather sleeves and quilted lining. The Art Start Snapback Cap — produced by Mitchell & Ness – features a melton wool crown, PU textured leather brim and front chain stitch embroidery. Both pieces come adorned with chenille patches to represent each brand and will retail for $224 and $42 USD respectively.
