DYNT x Premium Co Capsule Collection | FW13

Finding genuinely good people in this industry can be difficult at times & collaborations have been watered down.  Whether it's a good business move or not, after learning from past experiences we believe solely in genuine collaborations with people we fuck with. 

We discovered Premium Co on Instagram, exchanged words, contacts, eventually swapped product, built a friendship & respect for these dudes.  Premium has created a variety of Jewelry & Accessories that are very relevant & essential in 2013. This was one of the first pieces that caught our eyes, The solid 10k gold, or 18K Gold Plated Micro Jesus Piece is pretty unique.  Accessories has been a growing market this year, it's only right that we do something we haven't got a chance to do yet. 

Davin & Tyler have a very unique story behind their company, would you believe that they said MAGIC was the first time they legitimately hung out.  Davin is from D.C. & Tyler is from Kentucky, even more complicating, their product is manufactured in Florida.  The thing I like most is they actually work with solid golds, full 18k gold plating, & genuine leathers.  We previewed some of their newer product which Davin has focused even more on the detailing in each piece.

This past week in Vegas we got a chance to meet up face to face with the Premium guys and share our story to them.  What was supposed to be a brief talk turned into a a full on meeting & collaboration prep. 

The DYNT x Premium Co Capsule Collection will consist of a collaboration jewelry piece, ready to wear piece, & accessories.  Look out for previews to surface around the end of summer.

2013 Production In Progress

It's only right to start this post off apologizing for the fact that we haven't posted much to start the year off.  That is because we have been extra busy playing catch up & gearing up some big moves for 2013.  Stay tuned, we will keep the blog updated from here on out, you have our word.  We have started production on all of our new samples all the way through the end of the year, we have some pretty ill gems releasing this year.  Check out some "Behind the Scenes" & preview below:

Last week we stopped by to get tailored up for our FW 13 Handmade Varsity Jackets, this has to be the one piece i look forward to the most.

It's always been a dream to make a varsity for the brand, i know that sounds like an easy task but we wanted to produce something of superior quality.  A piece that is timeless, a quality jacket that will last you 10 years.  We chose to go with a tailored handmade genuine leather, heavyweight wool combination, with a clean satin lining.

When I say handmade, I mean this jacket is built from head to toe in America by hand.  Tul gave us a lil free hand sample of his handmade chain stitching for the camera.  These machines are Rare, Very Rare... They have been using these to make genuine patches since the 1940's.

It's one thing to be hyped to meet someone who is willing to bring your dream product to life, but its even better to meet someone who is just as hyped to actually do it.  Tommy & Tul definitely took a look at our blueprint and were hyped to bring this jacket to life.

Back on our side of town, some SS Product samples were getting printed up, check the detail on this piece. 

The Faith Tee is amazing, just can't give you too much of it yet.

LEAKS, SS 13 will be releasing soon....
