Streetwear imprint Bricks & Wood works in collaboration with K-Swiss on a new collection that celebrates the creativity of Black designers. The new range aims to capture the importance of inclusivity, community, and culture by paying attention to the design evolution of the emerging talents.
The capsule itself is made up of sweatsuits in either a dusty chalk color or a stone blue hue. The text that details the chest of the hoodies and down the sweatpant's legs reads "For Daily Use Design Program" in an embossed application. It also celebrates Dazo Anderson, who is the uncle of Kacey Lynch, the CEO and Founder of Bricks & Woods, and the first Black shoe designer at K-Swiss. To honor Anderson, the brand features a signature K-Swiss sneaker.
