Miami-based underground streetwear brand 'Stray Rats' released its lookbook for Summer 2016. The collection is modeled by edgy tattooed boarders in an arcade, using the neon lights to illuminate graphic t-shirts, shorts, accessories and hoodies spectacularly.

Stray Rats uses a number of different pop culture influences, making use of iconic signage, the 'Exodus' brand logo, Michael Jackson and even Disney characters. The company takes away the innocence of 'Snow White' dwarf 'Bashful,' showing the cute character oddly sexualized along with a speech bubble that reads, "You're Pretty."

Also included in the collection are pieces printed with the Stray Rats brand name -- with it arching over in high contrast on t-shirts and hoodies. The streetwear company is worth checking out for those interested in one of a kind graphic art work and statement pieces.
