As literally the world jumps on the streetwear trend and publications like Vogue are covering skate culture like they’re Thrasher, let us not forget the real ones like HLZBLZ, who are the foundation of the culture not to mention one of the godmothers of the often under-acknowledged women’s streetwear movement. (The current unisex trend? HLZBLZ were part of the wave that created that. Do NOT at us.)
For fall, the Los Angeles-based HLZBLZ as lead by Miss Lawn provides a reminder of its supreme legitimacy with its “Generation Youth” collection, paying tribute to the early days of street-inspired fashion through to the globally-embraced movement that exists today. Stand out pieces include the “On 2 U” camo trench coat with zip-off pieces and the “Major Bellz” cargo pants. There are also unique graphics that celebrate youthful resistance and a tribute tee for the one and only Sade. We love it.
Many of these items are now available to purchase on hlzblz.com.
