GRIMEY FALL WINTER 2020 THE NEW PRESENT
We introduce this collection with a very special feeling. We have
channeled our vision to this NEW PRESENT of the streets, more undefined
than ever before, and we have fallen in love with the results. Grimey
FW20 is a collection with a mix of aged flavors, yet it still manages to
retain its freshness in a deep and rough sense, it contains various
conceptual points but they are all joined together by a very fine thread
that allows the collection to be more continuous than in previous
occasions. For us it was fundamental to enter the new decade with a much
more defined personality. Apart from returning to our usual places of
inspiration we decided to explore new ones and returned only with what
fascinated us, what we love unconditionally. Trying to convert
tendencies into personal taste while overcoming our own natural need to
create something new, to not repeat. In this occasion the color range is
a bit more subtle in most of the garments but that does not mean that we
have completely forgotten the use of vibrant colors and in some
occasions they become the main focus resulting in a powerful and well
balanced mix of colors.
A special reference to our set of sweatshirts and tops that carry on
with an abundant amount of details that are the complete opposite of an
afterthought. We have put our focus on making this garments the pillars
of the whole collection. As far as textiles and materials go once again
we bet on cotton and polyester, while still making use of corduroy,
satin, polar fleece and Sherpa and introducing ingredients the likes of
velour, flannel and more than anything synthetic textile which without a
doubt is one of the stars of the collection, clearly seen by the use of
this material in garments such as a tracksuit and a baseball jersey. We
have the personal conviction that our Fall/Winter collection is the most
compact, bringing in a new breeze but yet and still not altering our ego
nor none of our personal convictions.
Inspired by Nascar racing but full of our own Grimey parallels and
classic concepts that are linked to the street knowledge, avoiding any
type of symbology that can be connected to the world of motoring.
Patches and vibrant colors over cotton garments, reversible jackets with
full prints, mesh t-shirts, skirts and leggings. The race goes on in the
streets and it is NOT in any way pertaining to cars.
Starting from the conceptualization of the expressions "Nightwalker" or
"Nocturnal Animal" and joined by the enchantment of the night life and
its surrounding infamy emerges "Nite Marauder", possibly the most sober
and moderate part of our collection, although by no means any less
suggestive than the rest. Jackets made from synthetic fabrics and denim,
pullovers and tracksuits made out of corduroy which has become our go to
fabric within our preferences, garments made from cotton and carpenter
pants as a novelty, all within a set of warm colors with our infamous
touch that give our 2020 Fall/Winter collection a sense of ambivalence
We shall forever loot.
You know my steez. Yet another spin to our classic core garments. This
time we have introduced a very potent color palette, plus a few metallic
touches in the graphics, whether on windbreakers, sweatshirts or
t-shirts we continue to reclaim our nonconformity.
Ubiquity is a reconstruction of the "Back in the days" concept, only it
has been liquified and converted into a cocktail of references and love
towards rap music, Roy Ayers Jazz tunes, inner city living and our own
ego. The message here is the intention to "Rock" the streets with a
youthful energy mixed with the memories of times that have passed, all
in a very uncertain present.
Tracksuits with a new and revamped concept combining mesh and polyester,
sweatshirts made with different materials and vainful prints, conceited
hockey jerseys and a dress born out of a NFL jersey, all within a very
vibrant and contrasted color range. Closing the capsule we have T-shirts
and heavy cotton pants, very "early 2000's" with more discreet colors
and more basic graphics but none the less still very conceited.
Inspired by the powerful Thai graphic style and supporting a
revolutionary concept of protest, Omnipresent within our manifest since
the beginning, we reveal Yoga Fire, a disobedient garment set that at
times seem to meddle with arrogance.
Ostentatious baseball jackets that flow with the classic concept that
this type of garment has, cut and sew sweatshirts with washed cotton,
chained embroidery, printed long sleeve t-shirts, cotton pants with
embroidery and cargo pockets, as a novelty we introduce padded garments
and flannels, loop earrings and even a Muai Thay set with a skirt and a
top.....the message is clear, the flame is still burning.
CALL OF YORE
Mystic? perhaps. Call of Yore stands as a graphic call to the mixing of
cultures throughout history's intrinsic conceptual map. Palpating
ancient cultures come together in the vastness of the universe exploding
into what this capsule has come to be. The range of colors used is much
closer to the earth tones and in regards to fabrics, once again we
turned to cotton, but in this occasion it is also accompanied by
synthetic textile tracksuits, baseball jerseys, pants, jackets, overalls
and different accessories, on top of that...velvet, satin polyester,
tricot, chenille, contrasting embroidery and full prints....we mix
concepts and fabrics...we are aware of the call from the past.
The name for this mini collection arises from the mysterious magnetism
found in the New Mexico deserts. We quench our thirst in the fountains
of the late 90's and early 2000's and we bring it back to this decade
transforming it into a set of garments inspired in the outdoors and
ready to tame the nightly desert and the streets. The graphic style is
linked to the aesthetic of the "Drum 'N' Bass" nights" and the color
palette is oriented towards warm tones with strokes of intense colors
that in a few particular garments are able to increase their energy
levels transforming into exciting yet very abstract prints.
Polar fleece sets and Sherpa jackets are joined by nylon tracksuits with
half zippers and hoodies, windbreakers with mesh panels and puffy
jackets with reversible polar interiors. Closing the circle we have a
set of very particular accessories that gives the capsule an extra hint
