Streetwear is supposed to be about community, so what better way to strengthen those bonds than collaborating with local artists killing it just down the street? A great example of this is Daily Grind‘s new collab with Raise Hell, which drops today. The line of fanny packs, bucket hats, and five-panel caps feature Hell’s Sailor Jerry-type illustrations in all-over patterns.
Raise Hell, also known as Raizel Go, is no stranger to the skateboarding world. She’s been painting on decks from Calle Skate Shop for a while now. She’s also designed boards for both Calle and Daily Grind. And you can find Raizel herself rolling around the streets of Manila on a longboard or a fixie. She’s even got her own fixed gear clothing brand called BRKLXX.
Raizel has started creating a name for herself in the past few years as a street artist too. Although she’s been drawing since she could hold a pencil, her introduction to murals came at the behest of Maka Fest organizers in 2017, who suggested she try leveling up to wall-sized art at their annual beachside party in La Union. She hasn’t looked back since.
So what’s the concept behind this new Daily Grind drop? “Fuck being fragile,” she says with a blunt laugh. “Because who cares? No one. Handle without care.”
