Finding inspiration from the durable workwear styles that Beat Generation poets and artists of the ’50s and ’60s donned, CGNY presents its 2017 spring summer collection but with a modern street twist. The brand draws parallels between the counter-culture, protest mindset of the Beat Generation and today’s heightened political activism, which leads to the lineup featuring oversized poncho-esque hoodies, functional workwear overcoats and vintage-style leather jackets that also incorporate pro-protest details and prints.

Each purchase also comes with a complimentary CGNY pen to “write your street stories.”

The collection is available from CGNY’s web store now, and if you’re feeling it, be sure to also check out their 2016 fall winter offering too.
