Brain Dead Long-Sleeve Half Zip

GOAT streetwear Brain Dead Long Sleeve Rick Owens Cropped Pants Junya Watanabe Short-Sleeve Patchwork Air Jordan 5 Retro Fire Red Aimé Leon Dore x 827 White Yeezy Basketball Quantum Stussy x Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Caged

Release Season: Winter 2019
Lowest Price: $108 USD

The label Brain Dead is led not by one single person, nor one idea, but rather a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world. With its graphic-led approach to a more disruptive design take, the brand takes cues from post-punk, underground comics and skateboarding to sartorially embody counter-culture as a whole. This vandalized take on a classic button down shirt replaces the typical buttons with a special half zip neck, while the graphic features text that encourages the unconscious mind to guide the conscious — seemingly appropriate for warm summer nights.

Designer Rick Owens, who launched his eponymous line in 1994, is now synonymous with asymmetrical silhouettes, sculptural T-shirts and distressing that’s inspired feverish devotion.

The cropped lightweight cotton pants come with a signature dropped crotch and host secure Velcro fastened pockets on the reverse ensuring your essentials stay put.

Marking his first foray into a hoops-inspired sneaker, the adidas YEEZY “Quantum” brings the basketball enthusiast out of Kanye West. Recently sharing a touching story in GQ about the late-great Kobe Bryant, West’s affinity for the sport and its greatest heroes is not lost on his brand vision. Applying his avant-garde sensibility to a more functional design, this version finds a divided upper with a lace-up neoprene bootie, snakeskin-textured paneling and a suede toe. A semi-translucent casing contains classic BOOST cushioning, doubling as the outsole for directional traction, on the court and off the court.
