Mishka—Born in Brooklyn, Raised in Hell—has just released its R1TU4L5 Pre-Summer 2014 Collection. The collection recalls and reinterprets many of the darker more esoteric themes that have been present in Mishka’s graphic vocabulary. Mishka means strangeness, and the brand has reimagined its strangeness for the beginning of its second decade.
The collection draws inspiration from Mishka’s obsession with the Internet and the occult. Mishka’s roots have always been planted in obscure, strange and modern-day arcane cultural touchstones. Mishka is exploring what it means to reinterpret those touchstones with its newest collection. This is not a departure for Mishka. It is a redefining of already existing and present themes within Mishka’s world.
The collection comprises snapbacks, jerseys, and long sleeve and short sleeve t-shirts. The R1TU4L5 Collection is available now.
Supreme doesn’t actually own the trademark to a name that has become ubiquitous with brand allegiance. In speaking with Interview Magazine back in 2009 founder James Jebbia said, “Supreme wasn’t meant to be a brand. I just was like, ‘Hey, that’s a cool name for a store.’ But it’s become a problem since it’s become a brand because we don’t own the name. It’s a good name, but it’s a difficult one to trademark.”
He went on to say, “With Supreme, there were no grand plans—with the name, with the store, with anything. It all just evolved. These days, it’s a lot more difficult to do that. You’ve got to come out with all guns blazing right away or you don’t stand a chance. Whereas when we first started, there weren’t blogs ready to shoot us down the day we opened. We were given time to make mistakes and grow.”
