Passarella Death Squad x Boxfresh
The wait is over- This winter witnesses streetwear alumni Boxfresh meet “Guardian of the avant-garde” Passarella Death Squad in a collision that is no accident.
“Boxfresh approached me with the idea of two British labels that occupy opposing ends of the streetwear spectrum, coming together to design a capsule collection. I thought this sounded like a great collaboration” says Danny Broddle, creative director of Passarella Death Squad.
The result is a capsule collection that incorporates influences from both brands, making it accessible yet directional. Key pieces include a unique soft drum-dyed lambs leather biker jacket, a dramatic trench coat, a contemporary take on a classical denim jacket and shirting in a bold camo print. Fine merino knits, hoodies, sweats and printed T-shirts also play paramount roles in this exciting collaboration.
