Streetwear label HUF teams up with cult 90s brand X-Girl for a X-Girl x HUF Sounds capsule collection paying homage to the rich culture of dub rhythm. HUF and X-Girl have both been long-recognized as legacy streetwear brands, pulling from music, art, sports, and other street culture influences. Founded in 1994 by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, X-Girl established itself as a cult 90s brand and pioneer of the “Girls Movement” in the fashion industry.
HUF continues its 20th Anniversary celebration with an ongoing series of collaborations taking inspiration from its global community, and this collaboration celebrates the trailblazing history of both brands in a capsule that pays homage to dub music culture. Born from reggae and a subgenre of electronic, this capsule blends aesthetics and design elements found in dub rhythm & dancehall. Key dub-inspired elements found in the collection include a palette with shades like mustard, forest green, and burnt orange, and include details inspired by dancehall album covers and hand-painted signage. – from HUF
