The Mishka SS 2012 lookbook is heavily dosed with young New York rap talent and spunky streetwear. Both the video preview and the editorial photographs are rich with youthful energy and rambunctious attitude. Artists featured include Danny Brown, Das Racist, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Queens rap trio, Children of the Night, Venus X, DJ Shiftee, Perrion and more.
The spring collection boasts the zany printing signature of Mishka. The flaming single eyeball appears on leggings, embroidered on Letterman's and slapped on snapbacks. A colorful slew of leopard print is added as subtle yet wild detailing to more sartorial pieces. Artist Party Supplies is adorned with the most memorable piece -- a standard spring jacket with a color-cluster lining reminiscent of Sgt. Pepper on acid.
