For the Fall/Winter 2016 season, streetwear label Head of State released its 'Cruel Hands' collection.

Intermingling influences from across the board, the apparel carries a strong vintage feel that aims to provide a message that concerns contemporary injustices and issues. In order to make this aspect clear, Head of State imbues the pieces with hand-painted lettering -- giving it a rough DIY appearance. In many others however, the streetwear brand uses clean-cut line work for a modern feel -- making for a revitalized vintage aesthetic that's rather versatile.

To present the apparel to consumers, Head of State put together an expansive editorial that highlights some of its most standout pieces. Those looking to get the subtly anarchist apparel that comprises the Head of State line can find it on the brand's online shop.
