Wise Guy + Misfits Rebellion Summer Tour

Wise Guy + Misfits Rebellion Summer Tour

On Friday June 3, Wise Guy and Misfits Rebellion teamed up to put on a nationwide tour of fashion, music, and art. Philadelphia, naturally, was the location for the first stop on the tour. The crews from New York-based Wise Guy and Atlanta-based Misfits Rebellion brought together runway shows for new collections from both lines, live musical performances from the likes of Sharod Lee, Lambo Lawson, Rex the Rager, Freddie Williams, Kassius Clay, and Lil Feese, art exhibits from Siraj Tacuma and Erica Rivera, and an energetic party vibe all into a single event. 

The clothing collections, the highlights of the event, were a product of both brands' signature streetwear aesthetics effortlessly translated into the summer months with a wide range of graphic tees and jerseys. Both brands showed evolution from their past collections in that they began to experiment with more muted graphics and color palettes, allowing the clothes to be more versatile. The show's stylists seemed to be willing to take risks when building looks and pulled it off well. Simple streetwear staples were combined with more aspirational fashion themes, such as risque' legwear for some of the female models and hard bottom shoes on some of the male models, to further showcase each piece's versatility. Scroll to the bottom to see a more complete gallery of the pieces shown. 

In such an intimate setting, each musical act was able to bring their own unique energy to every member of the audience. With a wide range of artists performing, from poets to singers to rappers, the full breadth of the cities musical culture was present at the event. 

The darker toned art of Eric Rivera contrasted well with both the white walled interior of OpenSpace and the bright, graffiti-inspired pieces by Siraj Tacuma. Both artists' works helped brighten the mood at the event and added visual intrigue to the space even during intermission. 

This event truly was an amazing night at a space filled with some of the city's best creative talents and personalities. It is things like this that show just how alive and well Philadelphia creative culture is.
