Earlier this year, we had the honor of collaborating on a tee with 10 Deep featuring the likeness of Malcolm X. Through the “By Any Means” collab it became apparent how important of a figure Malcolm X was in American History. So please join with us as we wish Malcom X a Happy Birthday.
“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.”
In commemorating the fateful day of Malcolm X’s assassination and a continuation in awareness of Wish’s ‘Black History Month’, the Atlanta-based retailer offers a new rendition of 10.Deep‘s 2009 Spring Collection T-shirt. A direct homage in its design, the T-shirt displays an enlarged portrait of Malcolm X set in a grey-scale illustration, with the aforementioned brands’ logos adorned in minor detail. Aptly titled “BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY,” the T-shirt will be released onlineand in store on February 21st.
“We started off wanting to do the Johnson Low sillhouette and wanted to use cheetah print. But after reviewing and seeing that The Hundreds had a new sillhoutte called the Hoya, we thought it would be a challenge to do something new and refreshing, we thought that cheetah wouldn’t translate to that type of shoe. [Wish’s] owner Lauren Amos thought it would be interesting to use print that is rarely used and initially we wanted to use pony hair material. So we came to the decision to take on peacock.
We curated different designs using the peacock pattern mainly on the outside upper of the shoe. But in final renderings we figured using the peacock pattern in the toe box and tongue area would let the pattern speak for itself, toning it down with darker colors.“
How long did the whole creation process take?
“We initially started the process in September 2011, as previously stated on a different shoe. We ended up going through about eight months of revisions until we nailed down the final design.”
Do you think people will like the shoe?
“I hope so, I know we love it. Lauren and I just wanted to do something a little different and not really do a print that was safe. Because I think something that is unique that you don’t see in the market often is peacock print.”
What do you think about the competition with Major DC?
“First off, let me say that Dukki is one of my good mentors in this industry. He’s been doing it for years and is definitely one of the top tier store owners and gurus of branding. I mean, just look at his adidas and New Era collabs. Just brilliant. So when we got the chance to go up against the legend, I was all for it.”
So do you think Wish will come out on top?
