Buscemi debuts a Fall 2019 collection that finds founder Jon Buscemi remaining true to his design influences deriving from a profound appreciation for New York City hip-hop culture of the ’80s and ’90s. Per the label, the assortment is presented as an homage to NYC giving birth to modern day streetwear.
“Before the streetwear of today, we were cultivating our own style through non-specific brands. Think vintage denim, workwear, military and sportswear. The key to this collection is that we looked to the roots of this style and recreated those pieces – then elevated them.” says Buscemi.
Buscemi Fall 2019 features a number of recreated classics, as workwear jackets and signature coats from the ’80s and ’90s are constructed from imported Japanese fabrics and Italian hand-sewn textiles, and detailed with customized patches and branded buttons and aglets. Furthermore, elements such as sports branding and logos are embroidered on hooded sweatshirts and pants.
