Dope Chef x Mikill Pane Collaboration

London based brand Dope Chef have collaborated with UK hip-hop artist Mikill Pane, creating a T-shirt and crewneck infusing their respective logos.

Fresh off of his UK tour with Ed Sheeran and XO Man, Mikill has a big year ahead, with his new EP ‘The Morris Dancer’ out February 13th, and himself being featured on many ‘Ones to Watch’ lists for 2012 – this new fashion venture is sure to only add to his repertoire of successes.

Limited to 50 pieces each, the same design features on both tees and crews – an amalgamation of the classic Dope Chef logo with Mikill Pane’s take on the skull and crossbones. On the back is the full signature Dope Chef logo along with a monochrome handshake between the two partys’ initials.

Available from the 11th of February, you can pre-order the items now from Dope Chef online, or pick one up at their Boat Store, where Pane himself will be doing a signing on the day. Pane also dropped a freestyle to mark the release, which you can check out in the video below.

    Johnny cupcakes anyone? Great to see a uk brand doing something, but when you get a graphic designer that can copy someone else’s ethos it looses it’s appeal pretty quickly!


    As a brand Dope Chef come in with consistent designs, good product shots, strong themes and good collabs.
    I feel they’re always tainted though as a ‘ghetto’ brand which would sit next to brands like Money and Playdot, which sucks because I actually really rate the whole vibe of this brand I just feel like they need a shake up on their target market.

    anyone else with me?

    I’d kinda think chill on making 4 variations of the same print for a collab, 2 is enough.

    Apart from that Dope Chef do the UK scene some good for sure..

    I’d never heard of this Brand before but gotta say Dope Chef is one of the illest brands i’ve come across. Fully diggin the concept of the brand ! The fact that the their store is on a BOAT say’s it all. WTF

  • logic

    they have changed a lot, and far above brands like playdot. big up mikill, and big up dope chef


    like it. dope chef has potential. plus 4 variations is fine. its only black, grey and white.. some people like black, some like white, some like tees, some like sweats.. they have a choice.

    p.s. its not like johnny cupcakes….

    It does look well executed, and looks cool. But as said before, I am sorry but I don´t see this as fresh ( Johnny cupcakes ,fit it before) There is also a brand called something like Edward tea-belly. I feel the same, they are cool brands and they have cool graphics but I just see too much inspiration on the JC concept.

    @ REALITYCHECK – i think dope chef is ment to be his ‘ghetto’ / ‘street’ project, if im right, the guy/guys behind dope chef also have this brand also, so i was told when dope chef 1st started up.
