Streetwear label 40s & Shorties looked to Shyne, the former Bad Boy rapper, to star in the new lookbook for its Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The label traveled to Belize, where Shyne is originally from, for the shoot to showcase the rapper's childhood upbringing. Shyne gave a tour where he once struggled, guiding the crew around his familiar island and introducing them to resource centers he's played a role in.
The new 40s & Shorties Spring/Summer 2018 collection is comprised of a series of graphic t-shirts, short-sleeve button-down shirts, crewneck tops and crossbody pouches. The lookbook explores the country itself, as well as its cultural beliefs as a primary experience, and even taps to locals to debut the pieces. The capsule dropped May 24th online through 40s & Shorties.
