Dickies x New York Sunshine Sun-Dyed in Texas Collection
For Dickies, work clothes are his daily bread. But with its first collaboration with New York Sunshine, the Texas brand and John Margaritis merge art and fashion.
Entitled “Sun-Dyed in Texas”, the collaboration takes place in two parts. Set up in the summer of 2021, the first segment consists of two physical installations in Marfa, Texas, which lasted 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 part of the collaboration sees the limited edition clothing collection made from the weathered material of Marfa installations.
Composed of workwear vests, two-tone carpenter trousers, jackets and overalls crafted in shades of beige, brown, gray and indigo, each piece is numbered to highlight its exclusivity. A highlight of the collection is a Dickies work vest with a New York City graphic on the back. The collection is completed with shirts, graphic tees, hoodies, hats and socks.
“Dickies represents quality, spirit and timelessness in their clothing, allowing me the creative freedom to merge fashion, art, architecture and retail into one, creating this unique and exclusive collection” Sun-Dyed in Texas,’” said Margaritis, founder of New York Sun.
Check out the gallery above for a preview of the collaboration. Priced from US$20 to US$420, the Dickies x New York Sunshine ‘Sun-Dyed in Texas’ collection will be released Friday, June 17 online at Dickies and The New York Sun.
