Recap Of The Previous Episodes
Initially, the designers were given 24 hours to express their distinct take on luxury streetwear to impress style legend Law Roach and guest Co-Signers 24kGoldn and season one finalist Kai Nguyen. Tasked with reinventing the preppy fashion trend, the designers developed their creative vision to produce a fresh twist on the famous style; fashion creator Angelo Baque dropped by to offer a once-in-a-lifetime cooperation opportunity.
The competitors went to the skate park to create costumes for professional skaters that combine natural street style with agility and comfort. The participants pulled inspiration from Marathon Clothing’s creator, Nipsey Hussle, to build legendary streetwear essentials with the help of Marathon Clothing’s Blacc Sam and BH.
In a collaborative test, the designers are paired up to develop new looks for what may be their most demanding clientele yet: Offset’s children, when the designers are asked to create a cool pre-game look for NBA player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the world of streetwear and athletics clash.
