Sports lifestyle brand ’47 has unveiled its Dye House Collection which takes the lived-in look of vintage tees and denim and recreates it modern techniques. Each piece is one of a kind — hand destructed, dyed, and washed in downtown LA.
According to Ron Robinson, ’47 was founded over 70 years ago in Boston and throughout its lifetime the brand has maintained a long-standing relationship with all of the major leagues and colleges. Thus, in celebration of NBA All-Star Weekend that was just hosted in downtown Los Angeles, ’47 teamed up with Ron Robinson, a staple of Los Angeles apparel and fashion.
The limited edition Dye House Collection includes headwear and tee shirts with destroyed appliqués, antiqued hardware, and distressed graphics. The pieces use logos for the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Golden State Warriors.
“We’re excited to introduce ’47 Dye House with a partner as influential and iconic as Ron Robinson,” said Creative Director Craig Rodia in a statement. “Each piece is truly one of a kind and feels like you’ve owned it forever — like it’s been through the wash a million times.”
The collection will retail between $76 and $100 and be sold exclusively through Ron Robinson, online and in-store at its Santa Monica and Melrose locations.
