One thing you can always count on with 55DSL, is the streetwear brand’s alway on-point collaborations. And this one is pretty much up there with the best of them.
55DSL have teamed up with the original music television network – MTV – and 6 different artists to design and create 6 bespoke t-shirts. Each one represents one of the 5 senses. And the 6th? The 6th will represent 55DSL’s special 5.5th sense – an as yet unexplored sensory experience.
Where MTV come into all this, is that the global network has teamed each artist with different motion design studios (including Universal Everything, Physalia and Digital District) to create innovative short films that will broadcast across MTV’s 63 international channels around the world. In fact, they’ve started showing already – just a few days ago.
