If you are familiar with this feature you know that the videos shown are usually well crafted fashion films or interviews that have perfect lighting and editing. Today is a different case and to me quite peculiar. Before the internet created a new consciousness of buddy or friend. This was able to happen. Cross Colors, a brand run by Carl Jones, was able to promote in Japan to an overwhelmingly positive audience. Not only did I grow up at the end of the brands popularity in the 90s but I had a pair of cross color shorts. They were the sickest shorts I owned! The brand left my memory until a few days ago. Jones created the label to celebrate color and diversity as well as condemn gang violence in the 80s. Political messages in clothing are nothing new but I think Jones branded his ideas well. This video inspired me and I hope it will do the same for you. As always I love hearing what you think below!
(This February I have chosen to highlight African Americans that are not on the average radar for BHM.)
Life is beautiful, let's share a little.
