For some months now, I’ve been paying close attention to Des Pierrot (who you may recognize as @loverboyclub_ on Instagram). The young creative who’s based between New York and LA has been executing his visions as well as building a following of people and fellow creatives from various ranges that admire his works through social media. I initially took sight of his hand made apparel during the beginning of last year and i can attest to the fact that he has not slowed down not one bit. To shooting his work on models in the NY streets to having his work worn by stylist and model Aleali May to rappers like Famous Dex and Quavo, it aint hard to tell to Des Pierrot is here to take over. I had the opportunity to catch up with the founder and designer to breakdown the inspo of his .01 collection pieces.
According to Des “I honestly just make shit that I like, i don’t like to wear what everyone else is wearing so i make my own pieces”. He goes on to express that his clothing is inspired by his own take on things and what’s specifically cool to him from art to shapes, pockets, and color schemes and then brings those things to life in his designs. If anything for Des, it’s not more-so about being inspired by one thing but rather about how his clothing can inspire others, specifically the youth. Although Des does enjoy executing dope visions through clothing, he’s rather more interested in motivating and inspiring those who came from nothing and are trying to make a way for themselves.
There’s definitely more to come from the sought out designer but for now, be sure to check out the Des Pierrot Collection .01 (NYC) here, you wont regret it.

Just after creative director and designer J.Reid collaborating with streetwear brand Undesirables, the Charlotte based designer is back with more heat for the streets. The designer recently teamed up with producer and photographer Myles Harris to create their Whealthy hoodie.
The hoodie’s symbolism illustrates that a healthy mind is indeed a rich mindset. If someone was to ask you what being wealthy means to you right now, what would your answer be? Whatever your answer is, the best investment in life isn’t necessarily something that costs outrageous or how much money you have to get what you want, it’s how much you invest into your mind and what you do to protect it. It may cost you a lot of reflection but once it’s right, it’s nothing that anyone can take away from you. This collaboration represents a positive investment for any individual who’s love is for the culture as well as for themselves.
The collaborative design is set to exclusively release tonight at the annual “LITMAS” Christmas party that is taking place at 832 Seigle Ave from 8pm to 12am. What will you do to make sure your rich in mind before anything else ?
