This season Carhartt WIP collaborate with West Coast collective, Braindead.
Ed Davis and Kyle Ng, the founders of the esoteric west coast brand, have reworked a selection of iconic Carhartt WIP products from their post-punk, graphic-led perspective. The collection features much-loved styles, such as the classic Bib Overall and Chore Coat, produced in lightweight nylon fabric. These are complemented by a selection of graphic t-shirts, a Beach Carpenter Pant, and a Logo Cap, with each one accented by Brain Dead’s signature lo-fi approach.
To coincide with the collection release there is also Brain Dead Index Vol. 1 – a publication created in collaboration with Carhartt WIP, which features a compilation of graphics and illustrations from a selection of renowned contemporary artists. Contributors include: Asato Iida, B. Thom Stevenson, Brian Kanagaki, Clay Arlington, Cody DeFranco, Daniel David Freeman, Flossy, Gustavo Eandi, Hassan Rahim, Jason Polan, Rob Cordiner, Stefan Marx, Tetsunori Tawaraya, Tim Head, Will Sweeney, Joshua Gordon, Jack Felgate, Coley Brown, Joe Roberts, Nick Van Woert, Oliver Payne, Jess Maybury, Nick Atkins, Gasius, Peter Sutherland, Joe Garvey, Shana Sadeghi-Ray, Kevin Donald McEleney, Quentin Gomzé, Face Oka, Fuck This Life, Amelia Galliford, Horfee, Favorite Nightmares, Lucas Dillon and Matt Locke.
