After collaborating with Deeper Into Movies late last year, London-based vintage specialist Unified Goods has now prepared a special release for charity. The latest drop features 50 vintage pieces, with 50% of all profits being donated to the charity Mind, chosen by artist David Shrigley who has also curated artworks on the Unified Goods Instagram.
The project with Shrigley marks the first installment of a new project from Unified Goods. Every week, the seller will partner with a chosen curator to publish artworks on Instagram and choose a charity for a special release. Shrigley’s choice to work with Mind — a U.K.-based mental health charity — is particularly important due to a surge in depression over the past year. Due to this resonance, Unified Goods has prepared a larger-than-normal capsule.
This weekly release features items covering a wide range of products and themes, with apparel ranging from the Apple and The New Yorker to Black Flag and Twin Peaks. Additionally, the curated selection features a 1995 Akira game, a 1991 copy of The Face and early edition books from Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Hunter S. Thompson.
The new vintage collection will release via the Unified Goods web store at 6PM GMT/1PM EST.
