OBEY clothing

I'm quite the fan of OBEY clothing, and a HUGE, HUGE fan of Shepard Fairey. If you are familiar with OBEY then you must be [some-what] familiar with Shepard Fairey, or at least his art. OBEY clothing was formed in 2001 as an extension of Shephard's range of work. It became another canvas to spread his artwork and ideology in self-empowerment. The clothing is heavily inspired by punk rock & skateboard elements along with cultural movements Shepard has based his art career on. OBEY has quickly become a popular clothing company, but it has always been much more than just an apparel trend. If you find yourself wearing an OBEY t-shirt, please educate yourself, learn what it is you're supporting & expressing by wearing Shepard Fairey's "andre the giant". I encourage you to watch the videos below!

If you live or happen to be in Orange County area next week, OBEY will be having their Fall/Winter warehouse sale! Ridiculously-cheap prices on all things OBEY! Get there early, bring a book and your headphones... lines will be extremely long but trust me, it is well worth the wait. Please feel free to say hello! (I'll be the blond that's running around... and no, I can't get you past the line, sorry!) 

Below are a few photo's from OBEY's Holiday & Winter Lookbook.

  1. Obey actually started out as a street art project called Obey Giant Street Art. While some think street art is better left to the streets, there are others who know what wearable art is an amazing form of expression. obey clothing
