NEEDS&WANTS Paper Issue 05

Issue five of our bi annual publication released this past week, featuring a cover story on photographer Kyle Weeks, an interview with K. Roosevelt by my bro Sean Lyles, and an essay on the work of Tom Hancocks. Our news boxes are currently out of stock, but we'll be replenishing them soon with collector's edition packaging that includes a download card for a new mixtape, and a digital copy of the new NEEDS&WANTS look book. If you're not in (Toronto) you can still purchase a copy online here.

adidas x Pique

I went all the way (even though it's only five hours) to Montreal with Pique to over-dye these tees for adidas then put soccer numbers on the back. They were available at the new adidas store on Queen St. as a gift with purchase. I originally designed three tees with Latvia, Qatar, and Cyprus on each chest, but adidas wanted to keep it more local, so at that point I chose to keep it simple.

There's this period of adidas design between 1975-1985 I connect with the most. I'd want to design a full range collection inspired by vintage football and track. Mmmmmm, lemme write that down.
