XLARGE Japan is dropping a collaboration clothing line with Stash & music video with Tokyo Young Vision
The collab brings old school graffiti to Japan
XLARGE Japan is going all out this holiday season. The renowned street fashion label just dropped a graffiti-inspired fashion collaboration on Christmas Day as well as an accompanying music video featuring Tokyo Young Vision, an emerging Hip Hop group under XLARGE Records.
STASH is one of the OGs of New York graffiti culture from the 1980s. Since he was 15 years old, STASH has been getting up with tags and murals that are distinctly his. At the age of 17, STASH’s breakout came when his work was exhibited with pop art pioneers Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat. While STASH’s work has been influential ever since, this marks the first time his work has been featured with XLARGE, the fashion giant which has been pushing boundaries for decades. The XLARGE X STASH collaboration includes three versions of hoodies and beanies with the XLARGE logo redesigned by STASH embroidered in the center.
To celebrate the collaboration, XLARGE recruited Tokyo Young Vision, an emerging Hip Hop Group for a sonic adventure. Titled ‘X Riot,’ the trap rap track fuses the chaotic demeanor of the young group with Auto-Tuned raps and adrenaline-boosting beats that echoes the familiar sound of ‘90s East Coast Hip Hop. Tokyo Young Vision exudes the rebellious, almost-destructive teenage angst that runs through Hip Hop. The music video sees the group causing low-key mischief by rapping from wheelchairs, riding on motorbikes, and sparking smoke bombs. By the end of the video, the whole crew is wearing the STASH collection and moshing it up on the streets.
