Tremaine Emory has dropped the latest pieces from his brand Denim Tears online, available for a limited time during the Holiday period.

Drop Three continues on from September’s Procell-exclusive collection of garments that saw the imprint comment on the beginnings of enslavement in the colony of Jamestown. For this new capsule, Emory continues this messaging with pieces such as the Tyson Beckford “Southern Man” trucker cap, which not only references 1619 — the year enslavement began in this colony — but also brings elements of Polo Ralph Lauren to its design, nodding to the brand’s model in its name and a design inspired by its house symbolism.

Elsewhere, Denim Tears continues the use of floral embroidery seen in the Procell collection through various pieces, dressing the front and back of T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and caps with floral branding. Flowers also appear as reworked peace symbols, forming a “Cotton Wreath” on numerous cozy essentials.

Rounding out Drop Three are two graphic T-shirts, with one referencing the Virgin Mary and the other sporting an image of Sinead O’Connor’s 1992 Saturday Night Live appearance where she publically ripped up an image of the Pope — only here, Denim Tears replaces the Pope for a historic image of Jesus.

Take a look at everything from Denim Tears’ third drop in the gallery above, and pick up your favorite pieces online while stocks last.
