Shepard Fairey is an American street artist, graphic designer and illustrator who became famous for his “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” sticker campaign. Back in 2008, Shepard created the Barack Obama “Hope” poster. His work is already in many famous museums all over the country, as well as in the Victoria and Albert museum in London.
The Shepard Fairey clothing is created on the art, design and ideals of Shepard himself. Known under the name of Obey clothing, the brand was born in 2001, as an extension of Fairey’s artistic work. The brand is about experience and variety, about questioning the purpose of everything around you and about self-empowerment.
Shepard Fairey clothing includes both men and women collections, as well as some curated works and an Obey awareness collection. The men collections include tees, knits, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, beanies, denim and pants, sweaters and hats. Bags and other accessories are also very well represented. Among the accessories, there are a few lines of really cool socks.
The artist series Doctor Woo is one amazing collection for teens and young spirits. It includes a few premium tees and sweatshirts, as well a a trucker hat.
The OBEY 3M Reflective features a series of tees and sweatshirts in various colors.
The women collections include tees, knits and tops, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, dresses, skirts, pants, hats and accessories. There are also a few jewelery pieces featuring a cool and youthful design. The Shesha ring, for instance, is eye catching with its snake with geometric skin patters and tourmaline eyes. It is made from nickel free brass and it is truly a piece of art that has the power to turn heads.
The OBEY Awareness series includes only three pieces, but all of them are nicely done and suitable for teenage girls who want to make a statement about their freedom and independence.
There are several styles of jackets, suitable for various types of personality and occasions. For instance, the Savages Leather Jacket is an exquisite piece, a moto jacket featuring a big double zipper and made from genuinely pebbled leather. It is one of the premium pieces of the collection and it features the new OBEY No. 89 labels. It is available in multiple sizes and in black color only. For $405, you can get a real piece of art to wear whenever you want to look rebellious yet chic.
The hats in the women collection are mainly beanies, but you can also choose from two versions of throwback hats, one in Courson pattern and the other one in Bloom pattern.
The dresses are elegant without being too dressy, so they are suitable for a wide range of situations and occasions. You can wear them to school, to work, or when going out with your friends. There are babydoll dresses, bodycon dresses, casual ones, as well as pencil skirts, mini skirts and maxi dresses.
In conclusion, the Shepard Fairey clothing line is a must have for any teen who believes in freedom and in the values of the new generation.
