New Era honors Hispanic Heritage Month, with the launch of a limited capsule of college caps, dubbed the Hispanic Heritage Collection.

Working alongside acclaimed artists Mister Cartoon, David Flores, Los Otros and Daniel Anguilu, the capsule features unique interpertations of college caps from partner schools such as: University of California, Berkeley, The University of New Mexico, University of Houston, The University of Texas at El Paso, The University of Texas at San Antonio and California State University, Long Beach.

Cartoon lent his his talents for several styles of caps for Cal and Long Beach. "Education and art collide in this collaboration with New Era and Learfield," says Cartoon. "All the logos are hand drawn with my twist by bringing my street art style to a number of chosen classic, local colleges.”

Flores, who is known for his “stained glass” murals and art pieces, designed hats with all partner schools. "I’m really excited in how this line came together and my vision was executed by New Era," he said. “These college brands were a great canvas to show my free flowing style.”

San Antonio-based mural crew Los Otros, consisting of Shek Vega and Nik Soupe, also put their spin on all schools, while Houston-based Daniel Anguilu did the same as well.

The New Era Hispanic Heritage Collection is available at select retailers, including Fanatics, LIDS and NewEraCap.com, as well as Follett and other on-campus bookstores.
