Historic players in the streetwear realm, Futura and Crooks & Castles team up for one of the more thoughtful collaborations this season: The LEWDS Collection. The popular streetwear brand and the artist come together to pay homage to a fallen comrade – Christopher “Lewds” Natalio, the late Marketing Director of Crooks.[carousel source=”media: 14559,14570,14569,14568,14567,14566,14565,14564,14563,14562,14561,14560″ link=”lightbox” target=”blank” title=”no”]
The newly-crowned U.S. National Team art director applies his signature handstyle to a range of T-shirts, bucket hats, and sweatshirts, paying homage to Natalio while preserving the Crooks & Castles aesthetic. The collection will drop exclusively at Crooks & Castles’ Fairfax location June 21st, 2014.
Utilizing Futura’s signature hand style and iconography through the lens of the Crooks aesthetic, the collection portrays an artful approach while maintaining the core brand DNA and paying homage to our fallen brother, Christopher ‘Lewds’ Natalio.
The collaboration itself stems from the camaraderie between both Crooks and Futura. Like two sides to one coin, the mixture of high and low, street and art, contemporary and timeless, within the collection proves to not only be impressive but essential to everything that is Crooks & Castles.
