Editor’s Notes: This week Sterling Ruby launches his second S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. delivery. A ready-to-wear clothing and accessories collection by the American artist, S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. premiered as the special guest of Pitti Immagine Uomo no. 96 in Florence, Italy in June of this year.
Ruby and S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA.’s second offering consists of the SOTO barn coat, long-sleeve button-down shirt, and raver pants, each of which is hand-dyed and hand-bleached, making the garments unique to themselves. The fabrics utilized throughout the collection undergo multiple treatments of dyeing, washing, and rinsing to distress and weather them. Additionally, fine silk is subject to the same process, as seen on the emerald green long-sleeve prairie dress and oversized shirt.
Ruby also offers a SOTO cropped jacket and jeans in white denim, inspired by the history of the West Coast denim industry. A gathered dress is then showcased in black denim, featuring billowing sleeves and tie details, while a gathered top and wide-leg pant appear in the same material. Indigo denim in turn takes over utilitarian jeans and button-front shirting with contrasting stitching.
A custom flag print adapted from Ruby’s artwork is applied to short-sleeve and long-sleeve T-shirts, and relaxed-fit sweatpants, sweatshirts, and T-shirts are decorated with his “Vampire Sunrise” and “California State Fault” graphics in black and yellow.
Accompanying the second S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. drop is an additional release referred to as “UNIQUE.” Available exclusively at ssense.com, the UNIQUE poncho and trouser are hand-treated, cut, and signed by Ruby.
