Subware ‘Diptych’ Jacket 2001

Subware ‘Diptych’ Jacket 2001

In 1993, Josh ‘Stash’ Franklin launched his graffiti-inspired brand Subware taking the step from being a graffiti artist to a pioneer of both the graffiti and streetwear movements in NYC. He later opened the popular street store Recon/Nort with Futura2000 in the early 2000s, supplying exclusive apparel and footwear, before collaborating with Nike several times and taking the movement to new heights. Stash summarises Subware as ‘a celebration of other artists’, which is perfectly exemplified by this particular piece.

For the design, Stash sought the expertise of Acronym’s technical designer Errolson Hugh, who were operating as an independent design firm at the time, providing brands with forward-thinking functional designs. The jacket has a workwear feel in its material and cut. It features 8 large storage compartments concealed by stealth covers, 2 standard hand pockets and an arm pocket. The 2-way zip closure allows the wearer to fully reveal the pocket system or access the compartments discretely.

This piece can be seen as a relic from a time where a ‘collaboration’ carried a real purpose for friends supporting eachother and making things happen. This is portrayed in the interior detailing done by Stash which showcases the brands of his close friends and frequent collaborators.
