Freelance X Flooristas X HellaSteez Dropping Monday August 15th Since the start of Freelance in 2009, we have always strongly supported the hip hop scene and our Brand found a home with the B-Boys and B-Girls of our local community, especially in the early days. The breaking community quickly became our family and their support and love helped us to solidify our foundation and keep us going. To do a collaboration with one of the dopest B-Girl crews repping the US is a natural project for us and one that keeps us in step with the core history of our Brand. This dope collab capsule is a limited edition run (only 50 pieces of each!!) and will consist of a long sleeve shirt ($35), coach jacket ($45) and custom socks ($15). Scroll thru for some visuals and a sneak peek at the designs that will be available soon! Flooristas is an all Bgirl crew repping Florida and California. Members are Naty Lite, MyLinh, Anna Steezeya, Sandy, Enni, Genesis, Miss Steezy One and Alba. Flooristas was created in Florida and established in 2015 based on the idea of representing for the Bgirls in unity, consistency and passion. They hope to aspire […]
2013 has been whirlwind year of growth in design, production and business. Our FW 13 collection embodies a new feel and new direction for the Brand. Looking forward to the future of design by utilizing a dye-sublimation process for several of our new cut-and-sew pieces in this capsule — including the hoodies, baseball jersey tee and our five panel caps. As well as going back to the basics with simple but classic six panel snapbacks, and a few statement tees such as the clean “TRAPSTAR” tee and the obvious “FAM OVER FAME” design. This collection aptly titled “NO GOING BACK” is symbolic of a new era in Freelance. Be a part of the Fam and make history. Click below to see the pics from our newest lookbook after the jump:
FREELANCE is proud to bring another original concept straight to you! The “Patchaveli” is sure to become a favorite staple piece in your headwear collection. This introductory piece is very wearable and features black denim panels with a smooth black leather brim and comes with three patches — 1) Black stiching on Black patch of the Freelance Handstyle Logo, 2) White stiching on Black patch of the Freelance Clean Logo, and 3) Floral Cred print on Black patch. The central feature to every “Patchaveli” is the concept of an interchangeable patch, giving you the ability to have several hats in one! All 3 patches with the hat retails at only $45.00 and is sure to go quickly!
This season was inspired by everything classic, nostalgic and American. Using the season’s hottest new trend, several pieces are full cut and sew using a dye sublimation process. In true Freelance style, we’ve collaborated with several independent artists, such as East 3 (Writer & graphic designer who has contributed greatly to the hip hop world), Friks84 (graphic designer who has worked with Mighty Healthy, The Freshnes, Agenda Tradeshow, etc), Bana (graphic designer who currently designs for LRG Womens, Crooks & Castles, Diamond Supply Co.), Spel Oner, Reckon Shop and Future by Design, along with our own in-house team. With recurring hints to the number 4 throughout the collection, “Land of the Free” is our fourth lookbook, our fourth capsule collection and celebrates our fourth year in artistic creation. We’re excited to share these pieces with you. To view the full lookbook, click here.
