Sean Wotherspoon's Latest GUESS Jeans U.S.A. Collection is Available Now
Sean Wotherspoon made headlines after being selected by the public as the winner of the 2017 Nike Vote Forward campaign, eventually releasing his highly-anticipated and sought-after Air Max 1/97 SW finished in multicolored corduroy, inspired by vintage Nike caps. The shoe became one of the most sought-after Nikes all year, and fans are still clamouring to own a pair (its resell value currently sits at a low of $950 USD).
Now, the Virginia-bred, California-based creative teams up with GUESS Jeans U.S.A. to create a capsule collection inspired by California's lush Farmers Markets. The collection is prompted by heritage archives of the 1980's and '90s and consists of a wide variety of apparel and accessories fabricated in all the vibrant colors of the rainbow. In the collection, you’ll see an extensive amount of color-blocking, stripes on stripes, over-dyed denim, and graphics of fresh produce and groceries. These vibrant pieces scream summer and have come in just in time for the second half of the season. After all, there’s nothing better to light up a room than a bright and bold shirt.
The fruits and veggies theme led GUESS to host a first-of-its-kind Farmers Market pop-up during Cinco de Mayo weekend at the company headquarters in DTLA. At this “marketplace of fashion, street, and lifestyle brands,” shoppers were able to purchase fresh produce and enjoy food, skateboarding, and live entertainment. The event itself was a success and a fun in the sun type of day. It is the perfect representation of all the pieces in the collection.
Sean Wotherspoon x GUESS will be available online at CLOT.com and at select JUICE locations this Thursday, July 19. With the constant rain in the city, hopefully rocking the collection’s bright yellow bottoms will bring out the sun.
