The upcoming 2018 collaboration between Oakley and SSS World Corp's creative director and designer Justin O'Shea draws cues from motocross fashion, as well as something else—the Thermonuclear Protection capsule boasts classic 90s Californian motifs along with the expected black and white checkered fabrics, referencing a race flag.
The motocross fashion designs also revert to a heritage piece in Oakley's high-performance lens collection. The colorful gradient in the Thermonuclear Protection puffer jacket is directly inspired by one of the company's signature lens hues from the 90s—the Oakley Iridium.
As expected, the Oakley x Justin O'Shea collection is "a shield against the mainstream" that incorporates the stylistic values and purpose-driven designs of both companies.
