Since its launch last year, designer Yang Li‘s diffusion line SAMIZDAT has carved out its own category of fashion — informed by an obsession with music and visual language. Recently, the fictional music-band-meets-fashion-label released another cohesive collection of subversive graphic-emblazoned garments for the Spring/Summer 2018 season.
Inspired by bootlegs and subcultures, the latest offerings from SAMIZDAT by Yang Li is comprised of bomber jackets, T-shirts, caps, patches, stickers and other bizarre music and lifestyle merchandise. Graphics found throughout the range reference album covers, self-defense items and religious motifs all expressed with a gritty, rebellious attitude. Some standout items include the embroidered Toxin Bomber Jacket, Chemical Mace tour T-shirt and overdyed NOMUZIC cap.
Priced between $10 USD and $512 USD, SAMIZDAT by Yang Li’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection is available now at retailers like /017. For more contemporary news, the latest wares from ALYX, Heron Preston and Misbhv come to life in new “Simulacra & Simulation” editorial.
