Brooklyn-based Brand By has revealed a first-time collab with Los Angeles artist Tamia Johnson. Comprising of a hoodie, t-shirt and sweatpants, the capsule pulls graphics from Johnson’s series of paintings titled “The 1970s With Love.”
Describing the inspiration for her art, Johnson explained, “My paintings have always been a way to celebrate my identity and the culture I was raised in. I find inspiration by studying the African American community that came before me and admiring the creativity, resilience, and uniqueness that makes us who we are today. By creating these pieces I am able to find peace and clarity in who I am.”
As part of Brand By’s commitment to supporting creatives, 50-percent of proceeds will go to the artist.
The Brand By and Tamia Johnson’s collection is available for preorder from February 7-11, 2022 on brandby.us.
