Death To Tennis continues to pick up cult followers with its downtown NYC network, ranging from up and coming artist Desiigner, Joey Bada$$, to Mick Jenkins, proving that NYC defines subculture in a way that only other cities can admire. Stay tuned for a shoe collaboration with Greats as well as residency parties at NYC hotspot Le Bain this summer.
SS17 is inspired by "Vulgarity exposes the scandal of good tast e" – a quote by Adam Phillips taken from the upcoming art show at the Barbican, "The Vulgar, Fashion Redefined," which opens in October. Death to Tennis observed the people and their reaction to what is considered "good taste”. Given the fact that everyone is "entitled to their opinion" (film, fashion, personality etc), the commentary can become critical and disparaging.
The "Fun Factor" Collection, is designed to represent that sentiment; light, observational and fun.
See the collection at Medium Concepts Showroom, at Capsule Paris.
