Every week, we at Highsnobiety take some time to highlight one of our favorite brands through our BOTW (Brand of the Week) series. Last week, we featured Canadian brand Raised by Wolves. This week, we’re shining a light on skater label Babylon LA.

Babylon LA isn't your ordinary skate brand. Founders Lee Spielman and Garrett Stevenson are also in Odd Future-affiliated punk band Trash Talk, whose merch the pair started out creating in pure DIY fashion. Having turned those DIY skills into Babylon LA, Spielman and Stevenson want their brand to bring the same sense of community punk rock and skateboarding gave them as teenagers.

Babylon's physical store in Hollywood, which shut down after three years this summer, operated more like a community space than a traditional store. The venue had a backyard with a skate bowl open to the public, tables and benches for hanging out and shooting the breeze, and a space for gigs, talks, and movie screenings.

But even if the store is gone, the clothes live on — and they are dope. Known for its badass graphics, Babylon has collaborated with heavyweights in the streetwear fashion arena, including 2016's "I QUIT" capsule collection with OFF-WHITE, which included custom cut-and-sew T-shirts. Last year, the brand linked up with renowned Japanese retailer BEAMS to deliver a summer collection of skate tees with multicolored embroidery.

Earlier this year, Converse tapped Babylon for a limited-edition capsule, with new spins on silhouettes such as the Fastbreak and Chuck Taylor 70, as well as tracksuits, hoodies, jerseys, and basketball shorts. Babylon pieces have even been rocked by the likes of YG, who modeled for the brand's FW16 lookbook.

Now, after the sadness of seeing the store close in June, we at Highsnobiety are psyched about Babylon's Fall 2018 drop, which was released at the end of last month. So psyched, in fact, we've decided to put you onto some of the best Babylon pieces available to purchase right now. Below, you'll find a couple of tees and embroidered-palm hats, with the tie-dye T-shirt being the standout. Hand-dyed in Los Angeles, the Dirty Dye tee sports logo graphics on the front and back.

Staying true to the brand's punk rock roots, these Babylon pieces are super-affordable, with prices ranging between $32 and $52. Take a closer look below and click away if you like what you see.
