Bronze 56K SU21: Collection Overview
Maintaining the momentum of spring’s release to continue paying homage to the aesthetic appeal of ‘90s era stylings, throwback corporate logos and abstract illustrative references, Pat Murray and Peter Sidlauskaus’ Bronze 56K introduce their latest SU21 collection here at Flatspot in line with the rapidly advancing warmer months of the year.
Inspired greatly this season by their iconic hardware legacy, their bustling NYC foothold and by their own admiration for non-conformist, conceptualised and all-together ideational design stylings that flow through edits such as their ***PTSD*** and ***IT’S TIME*** releases, SU21 for lo-fi skate documentary pioneers Bronze 56K remains true to the brand’s independent and liberated narrative for yet another season. With warmer weather excursions and outdoor ventures on the rise, the choice use of season-friendly fabrics return to play, whilst casual cuts, shortened profiles and well ventilated tailoring is indicative of summer season necessity. Warmer colourways across the brand’s latest selection of custom apparel follows on from the more neutral hued palettes of SP21 and AW20, whilst the brand’s iconic Windows ‘98 logo continues to evolve in light of the brand’s ode to the early dial-up era.
Focussing predominantly on short sleeves for the summer months, new season Bronze 56K t-shirts such as the bright orange Death Metal Lamp, the illusory Dej and the aberrant Mutant tee are all styled with reference to the brand’s iconographic heritage and arcane vibe, whilst the bitmoji inspired Puppies T-Shirt is a silhouette that remains loyal to the brand’s indulgence in early internet nostalgia. SU21 also welcomes a number of reinterpreted takes on their iconic Windows ‘98 corporate logo, with the photo illustrative Dice and Rim T-Shirts both styled with merit to their founding bitmap decal. For wear on colder days, the Aura Long Sleeve T-Shirt hosts to a psychedelic and free spirited underpinning, whilst the surfwear influenced 100% rayon Bankers Lamp Short Sleeve Shirt spins a slightly refined take on the same bankers light logo seen across the heavy metal inspired Death Metal tee.
A combination of influence from both archival workwear and the rising trend associated with classic outdoor apparel, the B-logo’d Bronze 56K Karpenter Shorts are well tuned to meet the demands of both suburban and cityscape skate and streetwear lifestyles. With a washed aesthetic and a resilient 100% cotton construction, these utility-stash knee length shorts are loose fitting and feature a characterised ‘Bronze 56K’ interior flag label that pays reference to the brand’s pre-Flipmode bolt selling days. For something a little more lightweight, the climbing gear inspired Bronze 56K Vert Shorts are styled to make easy work of explorative settings thanks to the profile’s integrated nylon belt, its fast-dry finish and its ‘90s inspired collage print design. Much like its knee length counterpart, the full length Mesh Cargo Pants strike the perfect balance between functionality and in-season skate fashion to deliver relaxed everyday wear uplifted by their easy-to-style cuffs and their creative mesh storage pockets.
Keeping the sun’s gaze at bay, new season Bronze 56K caps arrive to complement the transition to longer skate sessions and eagerly awaited evening hangouts. Pre-washed and crafted from 100% cotton, the curved peak Plate cap is available in a triage of shades; black, purple and yellow, with the embroidered crown branding styled in honour of nostalgic ‘90s detailing. For those that prefer taller caps, the mesh sidewall Footprint Trucker Cap welcomes a blue collar take on an all season staple across its footprint sculpted crown branding. Reinforced stitching throughout pairs well with its 5 panel design to provide ample protective coverage straight from first wear.
