For Dickies, workwear is its bread and butter. But with its debut collaboration with New York Sunshine, the Texas-based brand and John Margaritis fuse art and fashion.
Titled 'Sun-Dyed in Texas,' the collaboration takes form in two parts. Set up in the summer of 2021, the first segment consists of two physical installations in Marfa, Texas that stood for six months. A stick-frame house and a series of billboards wrapped in Dickies signature twill fabric cast an eye-catching glow against the clear night sky. The second portion of the collaboration sees the limited-edition apparel collection crafted out of the weathered material from the Marfa installations.
Featuring workwear vests, two-toned carpenter pants, jackets and overalls done up in shades of beige, brown, gray and indigo, each piece is numbered to showcase its exclusivity. A highlight of the collection is a Dickies workwear vest complete with a New York City graphic on the back. Rounding out the collection are shirts, graphic tees, hoodies, hats and socks.
"Dickies represents quality, spirit and agelessness within their clothing, allowing me the creative freedom to fuse fashion, art, architecture and retail seamlessly into one, creating this unique and exclusive 'Sun-Dyed in Texas' collection," said Margaritis, founder of New York Sunshine.
Check out the gallery above for a peek at the collaboration. Ranging in price from $20 USD to $420 USD, the Dickies x New York Sunshine 'Sun-Dyed in Texas' collection drops Friday, June 17 online at Dickies and New York Sunshine.
