As mentioned previously, New York’s boutique WEST teamed up with photographer (visual archivist) Ricky Powell in creating a series of limited edition t-shirts. Based on 3 of Powell’s numerous infamous images: circa 1988 Mike Tyson in Studio 54 with Public Enemy after a street brawl with Mitch “Blood” Green in Harlem. Circa 1987 DMC of Run DMC in Hollis, Queens. And circa 2000 Powell on vacation in Venice, Italy. All 3 screen-printed onto all cotton tees, black or white. Part of WEST’s exclusive apparel line set to release tonight in the midst of a special launch party featuring the photographer himself. Join in the fun starting at 8 pm tonight at WEST on West 72nd Street.
