Denim, leather: the two elements of rock culture are still highly present in today’s minds. What if action sports roots could meet an imagery from 80s metal culture?
That’s the challenge that 55DSL and 686 figured out, with this brilliant collaboration. 686 exclusive infiDRY® waterproof fabric and 55DSL signature graphics are guaranteed to keep you rocking while on the hill at all times.
The campaign is shot by director Stephen Agnew, who is responsible for music videos for the likes of Drenge and The Vaccines, with the help of graphic artist Ruff Mercy (know for his projects for Disclosure and Mary J Blige).
As the guys describe:
The 55DSL x 686 ‘Moshpit’ video turns the gaze of ultra-slow motion cameras to a wild, un-hinged circle pit, set to doomy guitar riffs and reverb-laden drums. Shot in a South-London warehouse space, ‘Moshpit’ is an examination of what happens when bodies collide in the midst of the heaviest hardcore punk gigs – every detail from beads of sweat to rippling guitar stings are caught in super high-definition slow motion.
An interesting move for technical outerwear to explore fashion. We can only approve.
