I've always been a HUGE fan of rap royalty Nipsey Hussle. Nip is an incredible philanthropist and also an amazing entrepreneur. He inspires me on how to run my business as well, by showing me what really "starting from the bottom" was really all about.
I decided to mockup a potential collaboration look for his brand The Marathon Clothing and VANS Sk8 Hi's. I used the biggest symbolism of Nipsey, which is the gang that he always claims when he raps, the "rollin' 60's crips." So I decided to use the blue bandana material, using different types of paisley leaves material that originated from his country, Eritrean. Also used his trademark "Crenshaw" logo script on the back embroided.
