Artful Dodger has been in and around the streetwear market for quite some time and we’ve reported on a few collaborations they’ve done including the ILoveDust collaboration. It’s interesting to hear about this today, this morning Scion, LLC, a joint venture between Iconix Brand Group, Inc. and Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter announced that they brought Artful Dodger from Scott Langton, the brands founder and head designer. The purchase price, a cool $15 million, in cash. Scott will stay on to continue to form the company. For all you aspiring streetwear designers out there: Work harder!
