Surprise collaborators C2H4 and NUMBER (N)INE join hands to produce a collection wrapped in a philosophical air, as made clear through their prints heralding the ‘potential’ of the ego. LA-based C2H4 operates medically, combining fundamental building blocks to create the bizarre and the wonderful. Diametrically, NUMBER (N)INE, originally under the guidance of outre virtuoso Takahiro Miyashita, is a brand loaded with heritage, distilling the spirit of grunge, western wear, and Americana into a dark, glitzy cocktail. The resulting collision? Investigative ‘chemical rock’ that channels synthetic and calculated, without losing touch of a certain warped, vulnerable humanness.
