Chicago-based photographer trashhand once again lends his talents to modern streetwear label dopeboymagic. The Windy City-based brand unveils some witty retro pairings in the form of the “OCTOBER ‘96.” Fondly recalling the days of The War Report and the Bulls’ fourth consecutive NBA title, “OCTOBER ‘96” has a gruff, ‘street soldier’ feel about the stylings, underlined by the tucking of pants into large Timberlands. The details fully justify the collection as quilted bomber jackets are paired with graphic T-shirts, and button-ups are printed all over with the ‘great’ labels of the day: FUBU, Iceberg, Sean John. Orange soda and braids resting atop a Swisher Sweet-themed shirt might reference a certain Nickelodeon childhood favorite. Retrospective in radical, yet interesting ways, “OCTOBER ‘96” updates the throwback aesthetic for the modern youth. Enjoy the lookbook above, and head over to the brand’s website to purchase.
