Fashion Fridays: RepJA Summer Tees and Ting

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Ah Yah So Nice! That’s definitely the theme of the season in dancehall- and yard-inspired streetwear. Our doopses at RepJA have put their spin on Potential Kidd‘s spring-and summer-defining hit, with a Miami Vice-inspired design, while that TV show’s classic pastels also make their way into their just released summer line in a “Jamaica Nice” tee. Shabba Ranks’ classic “Love Punanny Bad”—or perhaps just loving punanny bad—is the inspiration for another. And for di stush gals dem, there’s the croptop you see above. Although the loose casualness of a croptop is kind of inherently not stush, no? Hmmm. Check the looks below, then head over to RepJA’s store.

Top Ranks: Kevin Lyons x Miss Lily’s Variety

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Last year visual artist Kevin Lyons staged a show of his work called Red, Gold & Green for Paris’ Colette gallery, inspired largely by the aesthetics of dancehall and Jamaican music culture. “The language is fantastic and so fun to illustrate and draw; words like “BOOMBASTIC” or  ”COLLIE WEED,” Lyons told our Eddie STATS in a Q+A. “The letters are fat and juicy.” Among the works was a series of posters grouping similarly named artists: “SHABBA RANKS. CUTTY RANKS. NARDO RANKS. TIGER RANKS. JUNIE RANKS”; “KING STITT. KING KONG. KING JAMMY. KING TUBBY. KING EDWARDS.”
