Skating Brands Unite For Casual Collection
Swedish streetwear label WeSC has turned to skateboarding brand Stereo Skateboards for its latest collaborative collection.
Using vintage photography and hand-drawn artwork, the two labels have produced a line of men’s t-shirts, jackets, shirting, trousers and accessories, inspired by their skating backgrounds.
Stereo Skateboards founders Jason Lee and Chris Patras feature across t-shirts in photographs taken in the early nineties by Tobin Yelland, while sketched illustrations from fellow skating talent Clint Peterson appear on a mixture of styles.
Motifs vary from sketched elephants to illustrations of a human heart, finishing with a mixed print of trees, insects and weapons on workwear jackets and shirting.
Other pieces feature a small emblem of two united hands on the chest, with ‘WeSC x Stereo’ printed along the sleeves.
Finishing the collection is a variety of hat designs, with beanie and baseballs caps coming in blocked colours, completed by a collaboratively branded label.
The two brands already hold a strong connection, with actor Jason Lee and Chris Patras being named WeSC’s first WeActivists, each acting as an “informal ambassador” for the brand.
Best known for his leading role in My Name Is Earl, Lee was formerly a professional skateboarder prior to beginning his acting career, founding the Stereo brand with fellow skater Patras in 1992.
The WeSC x Stereo Skateboards collection is available online now, with prices ranging from £19.95 to £79.95.
