American heritage brand Alpha Industries teams up with streetwear retailer RIME and Canadian artist EEPMON for this collaborative take on the popular MA-1 Flight Jacket.
When Susan Boyle of RIME met EEPMON, the two bonded over a mutual interest in the zodiac. Then, when RIME began carrying Alpha Industries’ MA-1 Slim Fit Flight Jacket, EEPMON saw a chance to collaborate.
Using Alpha’s reversible bomber as a canvas, EEPMON designed a fierce monkey portrait (his Chinese zodiac sign) on the light gold side and a wild lion portrait (Boyle’s astrological sign) on the dark brown side, this collaborative “East Meets West” MA-1 Slim Fit Flight Jacket was born. In addition to being reversible, the jacket features a laser-cut, mirror acrylic keychain with the edition number engraved out of 128.
