Patta has collaborated with the Netherlands-based project Outsiderwear on a capsule collection that showcases art from diverse backgrounds. Outsiderwear’s mission is to give “outsider” artists a voice by collaborating with streetwear brands, fashion designers and artists with mental or physical disabilities, a psychological vulnerability or who have experienced homelessness.
Uniting people of all experiences in the creative industry, Patta has partnered with Outsiderwear artists Desmond Tjon A Joy and Regilio Benjamin to create graphic tees featuring original artwork. Desmond Tjon A Joy’s work, a pen and ink drawing, is inspired by Compton rapper MC Eiht, who starred in Menace II Society. Regilio Benjamin’s piece is a Patta Script logo t-shirt that features a Bob Marley-inspired multi-color photo print on the back.
The Patta x Outsiderwear t-shirts will be available at Patta London, Patta Milano and Patta Amsterdam on Friday, November 5th as well as on patta.nl and the Patta mobile app.
