Bronze 56k SP19 Lookbook

Heading the independent skate brand revival out of New York City, the Bronze 56k SP19 collection releases Friday, 8th March. Photographed in Manhattan’s Chinatown district, the seasonal lookbook exhibits the use of on camera flash, combined with spring appropriate colour palettes which offer pops of complementary contrast, while a playful use of props and backdrops further accentuate the premium details of the garments on offer. Photographed for SP19, Palace Skateboards’ Shawn Powers appears alongside Chachi Maserati, honouring the Bronze 56K aesthetic and extending the long term mutual appreciation between the brands. Staying true to the grit of the Big Apple scene and its roots in 90’s hip hop culture, loose and baggy fits are on display throughout a range of sweatshirts, bottoms and tees, this includes the all over B Logo Embroidered Cord Trousers, which come in a duo of colourways (black and mustard) and the essential embroidered B Logo Crewneck Sweatshirt - perfect for spring layering.

The SP19 season sees Bronze 56k muster a strong focus on details with the likes of allover embroidered logos, stitched graphics and adjustable cuffs - with the latter appearing on bottoms for a more versatile and personalised fit. Now synonymous with the brand, printed graphics are prominent throughout, showcasing the creative flare of founders, designers and videographers Pat Murray and Peter Sidlauskas. This includes an abstract Lebron James & Bronze Hardware graphic on the appropriately titled the Lebrunz T-Shirt, popping colours and typography on the Bronze World T-Shirt and my personal favourite - the classic Bronze B Logo T-Shirt, which comes in both short and long sleeve silhouettes in monochromatic colour renditions.

Completing the raw sculptured aesthetic of the apparel is a steady run of caps, with rad pieces such as the psychedelia inspired Trippy B Cap and the Technologies Cap which comes in black & teal and oyster & burgundy colour renditions, all adorning authenticating logos.

Born out of the harsh New York City underground skate scene, Bronze 56K has grown to become arguably one of the most authentic skate brands of right now. With humble beginnings as a group of friends skating and filming together in Queens, originally under the alias of Stick Up Kids and then Flipmode, before settling on Bronze in 2011. The grit and rawness of their video edits can be viewed on the Bronze 56k Youtube channel through edits such as ‘Solo Jazz’, ‘It’s Time’, and ‘Enron’ and there has been a recent introduction of John Shanahan through an individual part. This coupled with a unique early internet inspired aesthetic saw the lads grow their identity, which they have been developing ever since. Harbouring the power of social media, Sidlauskuas can be quoted admitting that Bronze started as a ‘fake’ Instagram company, with the then photoshopped B Logo T-Shirt gaining much widespread attention that the demand called for production to commence.

In 2019 the Bronze 56kK repertoire continued to burgeon, with notable historic collaborations with Palace, Reebok and HUF, as well as full seasonal collections in place. Cop the new season quick, as is often the case - we’re not expecting it to hang around long. For their latest edit, Bronze 56k have teamed up with Palace Skateboards riders Shawn Powers and Blondey McCoy for their 'Serenity Now' video which you can watch below.
