November 4th and 5th marked the 2nd annual ComplexCon and UNKNWN was there to bring Miami to Long Beach, California. The convention was a full convergence of art, music, style, and sneakers.
Influenced by the natural disasters that have shaken our country, we here at UNKNWN have found utility in the disarray. To demonstrate a shift in the way we view collaboration, we exclusively sourced debris salvaged from Hurricane Irma to construct our installation. Circumstance births invention and we use this mantra to inform our work.
Created exclusively for ComplexCon, our shopping experience included a series of special collaborations and pieces including the first of our ART’EFX series as well as the Eric Emanuel X UNKNWN collection. The first collection consists of American Thunder x Nike longsleeves with detailing reminiscent of the climate’s turmoil.
The Eric Emanuel X UNKNWN collection, designed in Miami and made in New York City, is a refined view of the team aesthetic for every athlete off the court in the game of life - dedicated to the importance of team and the longevity of those relationships cultivated. Notable pieces include: a Satin Coaches Jacket with chain-stitched UNKNWN across the back, the Swarovski Athletic Dept. t-shirt with over 500 hand-placed stones, Mesh Basketball shorts with reverse taped seams and our exclusive durag made from cashmere and silk.
