Collections form the UK’s GRIND London are some of my favourite to write about, simply because there’s often a tonne of detail and information to be discovered on closer inspection. For February 2012, GRIND introduce ‘Stereo Killah’ – a collection inspired by the music which has influenced the brand and it’s creators.
Comprised of four printed tees and two plaid button ups, and with nods too Tupac, Biggie, and NWA, the four tees each reference a different artist. The Makaveli tee makes use of the Tupac alias and the idea of faking your own death, flipping the name with images of Kim Jong Ill and Rodney Dangerfield, while ‘Machine Gun Funk’ sees the brand do the Biggie tee thing their own way on a white pocket T-shirt. The small collection also includes two plaid wovens, in red and turquoise with a button-down collar, which again sees the brand realise a hip-hop staple in their own way.
The 6 piece collection releases this Wednesday, February 1st at Grind London. A look at each of the pieces follows below.
