Berlin-based skate imprint Civilist has dropped its Summer 2019 collection, capturing its colorful seasonal offering on the streets outside its boutique-meets-youth club skate store.

Pieces are cut and sewn to Civilist’s exact specifications and feature designs by Face Oka and SHINKNOWNSUKE, who have co-created the “BABALU” and “Champagne” T-shirts honoring the BABALU strip club in Mitte, Berlin. Other cultural references include “The Holy Tee,” which is a homage to the 1973 fantasy-drama movie The Holy Mountain and features a reinterpreted version of the artwork from the film’s vinyl-disc soundtrack.

Speaking on the collection, Civilist says, “Other than that all of our collections are mostly stuff we like the most… don’t really care for what’s hot or not. As long as we love a design or a certain mood we go for it. I suppose that this time there was a lot of Nigerian psychedelic funk and visuals that lead to this setup/collection.”

Its psychedelic funk influence can be seen in pieces such as the “Das Tor Zur 4, Dimension” sweatshirt, which sees an all-over tie-dyed color scheme. Rounding off the collection is a selection of graphic T-shirts and logo-adorned garments, as well as host of accessories which are all available to purchase now on the Civilist website, as well as select retailers worldwide.
