Chris Stamp’s Cali-born STAMPD is having a major moment. From Ikea partnerships to walking NYFWM to collaborating with Barneys New York, the skater staple thrusts itself to the forefront of the fashion collective of its own accord. The next stepping stone in the multi-year plan—a Spring 2017 lookbook that reinvents utilitarian-wear with that ever-popular street urbanity. Dubbed “Against the Grain,” the new looks do not distance themselves from the STAMPD collections of past, rather building upon the foundation for a neutral, brooding body of work that finds its soul in a pavement-pounding passion. With an intentionally androgynous construction and elongated lines that extend the torso, the pieces style a pre-millennium man, one willing to don the repurposed “uniform” for a crisp sartorial uprising that raises hell and softens demeanors all in one clean sweep.
