Zero FX Stealthfighters at DOPE Fairfax

We released Spring ’15 Drop 1 at DOPE Fairfax on Thursday along with a new buildout featuring Zero FX Stealthfighter electric motorcycles. These completely electric bikes, provided by our friends at Hollywood Electrics, go from 0-60 in 4 seconds, are styled completely in matte black, and feature both on and off-road capabilities. These bikes are the definition of Not To Be Fucked With.

Check out the buildout below, or see it in person at DOPE Fairfax.

Spring 2015 Drop 1: NTBFW

Punk wasn’t created, it evolved. As creatives became tired of the status quo, they began to modify familiar works to build an entirely new medium of expression. With this mentality in mind, DOPE has delivered a line that defies convention and looks towards the evolution of streetwear.

For Spring, DOPE brought new fabrics to traditional silhouettes along with modified sleeves, cutoffs, and unfinished edges. Graphics inspired by iconic groups, phrases, and imagery that embody the rebellious spirit bring a new context to plaids and prints familiar to the line. Red elements round out the collection by bringing a strong contrast to a monochromatic color palette.

This Spring, DOPE Is Not To Be Fucked With.

Always Inspired: DOPE at Art Basel 2014

Always Inspired was DOPE’s first Art Basel project bringing together trap music innovator Heroes x Villains, member of the growing “new Atlanta” rap movement Key!, and Australian exhibiting artist Jirat to examine the decontextualization of inspiration in their varying mediums. Whether it is through HxV’s fusion of electronic music and hip-hop, Key!’s punk-rock mentality, or the juxtaposition of heavy metal and rap elements in Jirat’s exhibits, each artist focuses on the creation of an entirely new form of art that is free from the bounds of genre and context.

For Always Inspired, Jirat created a custom DOPE jacket that was displayed at Basel Castle first as an exhibition and ultimately as a live performance piece worn on stage by HxV during his set with Key!. The resulting performance was the culmination of Always Inspired, fusing music, art, and fashion into one collaborative experience. See the entire project below:

DOPE x The Squad Event Recap

We hosted an event at DOPE Fairfax on Friday to celebrate the launch of our collaborative collection with The Squad.

Check out photos of the event below, and be on the lookout for limited quantities of the collection to release on DOPE.com.
