Modeled by indie-music artist Cuco, the collection looks back at eight years of Menace where designer Steven Mena reflects on his journey growing up in Southeast Los Angeles and his family’s roots in Central America. “This collection is about the growth and maturity of Menace while also figuring out how to instill humility through fabrics and silhouettes. You don’t need to be religious to understand this collection so we’re putting religion up for interpretation,” says Mena.
As the name suggests, this collection features references to religion as seen on the “MENACE FOREVER” cross motif and the highlight leather blazer with skeletal embossed wings across the back. The range of offerings includes a laser-engraved suede trucker jacket, a tiger fleece zip-up, and velour burnout monogram shirts. Drop 1 is out now with pricing ranging from $25 – $340 USD while Drop 2 is scheduled for October 28 over at Menace LA.
