Honeyee posted the much awaited full feature on the Uniform Experiment Fujiwara x Soph. collaboration. As expected photography and product placement is an excellent supplement to the tops quality product, that is obvious in the feature. It contains elements we’ve seen previously but in a new light. A brand meant for the maturing heads, who’ll be needing blazers and ties, and necessities like jewel encrusted carabiners. An off-beat collaboration will also see a pair of board shorts developed in conjunction with Quiksilver. Check out the Honeyee feature and the Uniform Experiment site for more fulfillment and awe.
