A darkhorse is considered an entity that is relatively mysterious whose abilities and potential to achieve greatness are unknown. Here is a look at Darkhorse’s 2007 Fall Collection. Much of this collection derives its inspirations and themes from a plethora of different sources such as classic hip-hop, rock and political punk. In turn, Darkhorse represents a melding of clean lines and simplicity with the aforementioned themes. The result are designs that exhibit an interesting collective of understated and loud statements. These Fall pieces include some inspirations from some of Darkhorse’s favorite artists, from Prince and Queen to Grace Jones (a collaboration with artist David Flores).
The educational institution is perhaps best known as a relationship between pupil and teacher.

The Staple 2007 Fall/Winter Collection features an extensive division of garments such as outerwear, bottoms, tops, t-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories.
