Proceeds from the T-shirt and hoodie will benefit Chicago CRED (Create Real Economic Destiny), an organization that aims to reduce local gun violence by creating opportunities in the fashion industry for underserved communities.
Prince x Brain Dead 2020 Capsule
The special range features a light zip-up jacket, long-sleeve polo and T-shirt, alongside accessories like a bucket hat, five-panel cap, tennis racket and a tennis ball. The jacket expresses the retro-style design of bold contrasting color-blocks of teal, brown, blue and black, accented with small hits of orange and beige. The standout racket continues the color scheme with a large “P” logo emblazoned across the string bed, while black tape around the handle finalizes the design.

Teaming up with Porsche, the three-piece capsule features a T-shirt, long-sleeved T-shirt and a hoodie. The limited-edition range in neutral magnolia colorway and features a graphic print on the chest that reads “Time Travel Isn’t Just For the Movies,” alongside an illustration of a classic Porsche car.
Gordon Parks Foundation x Public School Collection
Offering its stance on the current movement in the United States, Public School looked back on some of the great Civil Rights Movement leaders and their peers for a new charitable effort.
The brief collection of T-shirts is centered around rare imagery sourced from the archives of the Gordon Parks Foundation in honor of the highly influential photographer. Malcolm X and members of the Black Panther Party, Parks’ self-portrait and a quote that the artist uttered back in 1968: “What I want, what I am, what you force me to be is what you are” are emblazoned on Version Tomorrow blanks. The sustainable bases are crafted of a 60/40 blend of recycled and organic cotton, to create a completely biodegradable and recyclable piece of clothing, softening the strain that fashion places upon the planet.
