S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. Second Delivery

by Christopher Andrew Armstrong

What happens when a renowned artist turns his creative drive towards making clothes? Well, in Sterling Ruby’s case you have R. STUDIO. LA. CA, a ready-to-wear clothing and accessories collection which evolved from years of textile and garment experimentation and development.

After premiering as the Special Guest of Pitti Immagine Uomo no. 96 in Florence, Italy this past June, the brand introduces their second wave, the poncho set pictured in the story is the one UNIQUE piece in the delivery. Each garment within the UNIQUE collection is hand-crafted, cut and signed by the specific artist, and assigned a unique inventory number. This line includes a SOTO barn coat, raver pants, and long-sleeved buttoned-down shirts. All items are hand-dyed and individually bleached which brings a sense of originality to each piece. 

Sterling Ruby’s large body of artwork makes appearances in the clothes he designs. From his custom flag print appearing on shirts to his ‘Vampire Sunrise,’ and “California State Fault,’ graphics printed on sweatshirts and sweatpants. 

The S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. is available for purchase at srstudio.com and ssense.com.
