The year is fresh and full of opportunities for designers Dee & Ricky – some in the fashion world, and some on the more philanthropic side of things.
Starter Black Label is set to release their limited-edition collaboration with irreverent designer twins, Dee & Ricky. Dee & Ricky, most famous for their Lego heart pins worn by celebrities like Kanye West and The Roots’ Questlove, were commissioned to design three capsules, each consisting of a snapback baseball cap starting at $50, knit cap at $30 and crewneck fleece sweatshirt at $100.
In the press release, Dee, one half of the Staten Island-born twin duo, spoke on their latest collaboration with the brand, saying:
“We play with an unconventional set of rules, and thus felt it was only right to create our own teams to represent the game of our lives. We approached the Starter Black Label Collection with our unique point of view, resulting in an individualistic twist on team sports, as we are by no means a traditional team.”
Starter also commissioned Dee & Ricky to do a series of one-of-a-kind duffel bags, iPad & laptop cases, and crowns all constructed from the brand’s signature Pro Team satin.
The entire collection will be available exclusively at the Starter Clubhouse from January 23rd through February 28th, with limited stock available on www.starterblacklabel.com. But this isn’t the only collaboration the duo is rolling out…
Dee & Ricky are also joining a foundation that is close to our hearts here at GlobalGrind, as they are helping Russell’s Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation with their Valentine’s Day luncheon, working with the Rush Kids to create/design a one-of-a-kind Heart Pin to benefit the foundation. The pins will then be sold throughout the year to benefit the foundation and the kids who were involved in creating them.
The new year is already off to a big start for the pair. Check out a closer look at the items with Starter below.
