A$AP FERG (TRAPLORD) X STILES.be (MATERIALISM) COLLABORATION October 1, 2016 – Posted in: Uncategorized
When MATERIALISM designer STILES.be met with A$AP FERG to hand him the A$AP YAMS jacket they got talking all things art + fashion and after comparing techniques and styles they used on customising the flyest wears they decided on collaborating on a series of hand painted tees.
So STILES flew to SYDNEY / AUSTRALIA to meet up with A$AP FERG at a secret location in the infamous suburb of REFERN before his performance at the LISTEN OUT FESTIVAL 2016.
FERG X STILES started jamming on the tees as soon as he rolled in the door. They both started out bouncing base coat patterns off each other straight on the garment, taking turns to create the shapes and textures with TRAPLORD being the foundation of the design. FERG being very focused and clear on the desired outcome even researched the movie ICE AGE colourways (he had seen the movie and was inspired by the palette) to make sure everything followed his vision. Quotes were then added to put down an extra layer and context to the project. While the ever casual STILES floated between weaving his own ideas into the artworks using his freestyle skills he has been come to be recognized by. FERGs media of choice was puff paint for that slick 3D effect while STILES ran with MOLOTOW paint pens as theyre his current favourite item in the toolbox.
MARTY BALLER dropped by to check it out as the artists wound up and copped some fresh tags on his denim jacket before everyone bailed the studio to go to the LISTEN OUT show.
The tees were given by A$AP FERG to friends and family … so …
Y’ALL CAN’T GET THESE !!!
