X-girl x HUF Sounds Collection

X-girl x HUF Sounds Collection

by Finesse Finesse

The X-girl x HUF collaboration capsule celebrates the rhythm and vibrant culture of dub music by creating unique pieces that are made to move and pay homage to the intersection between music, fashion and sports. 

Founded in 1994 by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, X-Girl established itself as a cult '90s brand and pioneer of the “Girls Movement” in the fashion industry-creating an opportunity for women within the streetwear realm in an otherwise male-dominated space.

HUF continues its 20th Anniversary celebration with an ongoing series of collaborations taking inspiration from its global community, and this collaboration celebrates the trailblazing history of both brands in a capsule that pays homage to dub music culture.

Born from reggae and a sub genre of electronic, this capsule blends aesthetics and design elements found in dub rhythm & dancehall. Key dub-inspired elements found in the collection include a palette with shades like mustard, forest green, and burnt orange, and include details inspired by dancehall album covers and hand-painted signage.

This X-Girl x HUF collection features lightweight cottons, rayons, terry cloth, and a custom pop-colour camo print overlayed on an assortment of tanks, graphic tees, mesh headwear styles, and accessories.

Key pieces in this capsule include the Home Team Jersey, the Resort Shirt and Short Set with an all-over dub-inspired print, the Camo Skate Pants, and the Bad Gyal Tank.

In Melbourne, you'll be able to shop the collection exclusively first in store at Finesse on 20 October from 11am-6pm. Come celebrate the launch with dubs, base and vibes kicking off from 4-8pm with drinks flowing and tunes by Namisalami.

Good times guaranteed, see you 47 Derby St, Collingwood.
