Brooklyn born contemporary menswear designer Chelsea Bravo has teamed up with Kojey Radical for a capsule collection
Brooklyn born contemporary menswear designer Chelsea Bravo has created a crisp, detailed experimental one of a kind capsule collection in collaboration with poet and mixed media artist Kojey Radical. Based on painters canvas & garden utilitarian workwear Chelsea Bravo combines unconventional tailoring with unique shapes and patch work techniques, introducing elements of embroidery for added detail, along with interior embellishment, and a one of a kind padded vest jumper painted by hand by Kojey Radical. Initially made only for studio archives the garments are all one of a kind and are extremely limited.
Opting for a neutral colour palette, the key pieces resonate a minimal aesthetic, whilst detail comes in the shape of an intricately quilted zipped gilet. The collaboration coincides with Kojey Radical’s highly anticipated debut EP ‘Dear Daisy: Opium’ released this month, bringing to life the attire of the EP’s main character ‘The Gardener’. A multifaceted conceptual piece, Dear Daisy tells stores of love, gender issues, social interaction, insecurity and more, bringing together inspiration communicated through poetry, music, photographic collections, illustration and film to coincide with the capsule collection.
