Building on its homage to the significant cultural moments of the past, Chicago creative Easy Otabor‘s fledgling label Infinite Archives‘ Spring/Summer 2018 release puts a spotlight on the year 1986.

Proving history is a vast wellspring full of narratives and creative ideas, the latest release of T-shirts references ‘86 and some of the prominent figures from the year that went on to shape our emerging culture. Leading the set of tees is the “4 Kings” T-Shirt which features a choice group photo of Spike Lee, Andy Warhol, Jean-Micheal Basquiat, and Fab 5 Freddy at the New York premiere of Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It. “The Sweetest Taboo” T-shirt presents an imaginative sketch of singer Sade done by Canadian illustrator, Georgia Bayliss, while the “Tyson” T-shirt references trading cards with a print of a vintage Mike Tyson’s sports card complete with bio on the back. Lastly, Infinite Archives’ permanent “Blur” T-shirt comes in a standout pepper-black washed out base with the logo “Infinite” in purple at the front and “Archives” in orange at the back, along with both a white and black base color iteration.

Priced between $60 and $65 USD, Infinite Archives Spring/Summer 2018 release is available now at select retailers like HBX.

For more contemporary fashion, OBEY went psychedelic with its latest colorful Tie Dye pack.
