Deeply rooted in art and music, Shepard Fairey, creator of Obey Propaganda and Obey Giant, has not only continued to produce socially conscious artwork, but deliver rather impressively in apparel, as well.

Launched in 2001, Obey often meshes with music; the FW16 collection includes an ode to punk rock and features a collaboration with the hardcore punk band Bad Brains.

Attention to outerwear, great-fitting, fair-trade T-shirts, iconic patches, and an extensive accessory collection will grace stores late summer.
Look for great-fitting, fair-trade T-shirts, iconic patches, and an extensive accessory collection.
Currently designed in Los Angeles, Obey’s aesthetic is easy to wear, and includes basic wardrobe pieces with other more dynamic pieces like distressed denim with patches, and slogan-covered bomber jackets. The tongue-in-cheek sayings on this collection’s pieces really captivate what the label is all about: a political awareness of current issues with a slight sense of playful humor.
Some pieces are unisex, but both women’s and men’s collections can be cross-styled. With a background in art, both collections are faithful to Obey’s vision and Shep’s uncapped creativity.
