Violette New York, the apparel line owned and designed by creative guru (and former Woman Making History) Va$htie Kola, is back with a selection of new designs for the Winter season. And although Spring is just around the corner, the saying “better late than never” certainly applies here, because Violette is back with the heat to warm up your late winter season!
Entitled “Ghetto Goth”, the new collection reinterprets the culture clash of the hood and the ‘burbs, presenting unisex tops devoid of color and complication. The black and white color palette is designed to reflect “that kid from Brooklyn who listens to The Smiths, wears a black trench coat, but still rocks Jordans.” We know (and love!) a few of those, here at M.I.S.S!
The brand remains simple in their cuts, providing short-sleeved and tank styles. The tees feature some of Violette’s signature logos, such as a heart and a “V” over a color blocked background.
The seasons’ new styles inventively reflect the gothic theme thanks to elegant and fun graphics, especially the new simple white Tee with an etched black screenprint of a single rose emblazoned on the front.
In addition to the new crop of tops, Violette brings in the Winter season with a collaboration of limited edition pieces designed in tandem with designing brothers Dee & Ricky. Va$htie teamed up with the two to create a lego cross, which will come in both black and purple. Available exclusively on VioletteNewYork.com, only 45 pieces were made, so be sure to cop these exclusive beauties as quick as possible!
Director Va$htie produced a video lookbook of the new line, taking you behind the scenes of the shoot. Violette also teamed up with the new media company Creative Control to give you a behind the scenes look at the shoot. Peep both below, and make sure to visit Violette’s webstore to get your pieces today!
