Darkhorse: Late, But Back With a Vengeance
Since March, I've been wondering where the hell Darkhorse was at with their Spring/Summer 2008 collection. There were no updates on their site nor on their carrier's. This is when I thought Darkhorse, along with Tens, were temporarily out of the street wear game for the warm seasons ahead. Looks like Wendy from Nitrolicious found that they are now out of their hiatus with that nitty gritty, tongue-in-cheek, overtly sexual inside jokes of a t-shirt collection a la Spring/Summer '08, which we love. No one does it better than Darkhorse when it comes to that sort of thing, and i'm definitely loving the collection for both men and women.
Grace Jones worship is back, as well as a reference to Daft Punk and homage to fashion's most sought-after designers, John Galliano of Dior, Alexander McQueen for Givenchy/McQ and Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. You know i'm going to cop this, after picking up that Uncle Karl tee at UO a few weeks back. Be on the lookout at Cultist, Overkill and any other DH retailer for the collection to drop any day now.
