New Artist Scarves by Sociale Revolution
There is so much insane talent out there in both the apparel and art worlds (even though fashion basically IS art), and I love watching the two fuse together in such a way to get more beautiful pieces out there in the hands of new fans. It definitely helps when artwork is wearable! Sociale Revolution is a brand that has been up front and center in being a catalyst for this movement to happen, and they are one of those companies that I’ve had such a pleasure to work with and watch grow. If you’re new to my blog, Sociale Revolution is a Californian collective aimed at making art more accessible by encouraging its use for social debate, while helping artists gain exposure and giving back to their cultural roots. They began as a Kickstarter back in 2014 and they continue to add amazing artists to their roster, helping them them expand their influence beyond the canvas and onto premium apparel that is crafted and designed with the utmost eye for detail and quality. What sets Sociale Revolution apart from other art-to-clothing companies, however, is that they aren’t just a vehicle for artists, but also their very own fashion label that forms unique bonds with the artists they bring on board.

Birthday Recap of my Shiniest Moments in Blogging
Well it’s that time again, when I stop and think in disbelief how fast the time has gone…and how the hell I’m already one year (or two or three or…heck, 10) years older. It’s definitely scary how our relative perception of time gets shorter as we get older compared to how many years we’ve lived, making it feel like time is speeding up. At least, that’s the theory I’ve read and tend to believe. What’s hard to believe though, is that I even got into this blogging business to begin with. Only a few years ago it was just a fleeting thought with no plans to even bring it into fruition—the last time I had even attempted to start a blog was on Blogger in 2009 when I thought I would document the planning of my wedding. I did squeeze a few denim-related posts in here and there but only had one follower (my fiancé’s sister) and I just didn’t feel a drive, passion or motivation in general to continue beyond only a handful of posts. That probably lasted about three or four months. Perhaps I wasn’t as well rehearsed on how to promote a blog—social media was already a strong point of mine, as was networking and web development, but I definitely didn’t know as much about marketing or how to properly promote posts cross-platform as I do now.

Art Tees and Tanks by Sociale Revolution
Here we go again with the art meets fashion thing! But who can blame me? There have been a lot of this lately, and they go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. However, apart from the high couture, limited edition, hand-painted work such as that from the MADE GOLD x Yuki Haze collection, there lies a few other brands that allow an outlet for multiple artists to get their work out there through printed tees, tanks, and occasional other items like blankets, leggings or pillows for example. Society6 and The Coterie are an example, but I’m actually excited to bring back up a totally different one that works hard to kick it up a notch with fitted, premium style: Sociale Revolution! I last wrote about this brand almost two years ago when it was still in the works as a Kickstarter campaign, and now it’s been flourishing as a brand in full production.

A New Fusion of Art and Fashion by Sociale Revolution
Like the next fashionista, I love the large, established, tried and true seasoned brands. However, I also have an affinity for the little guys…it can’t be easy in this overly-saturated market. It’s fascinating to see how creative startups are nowadays, especially with Kickstarter projects like Barbell Jeans (previously featured on this blog) and now Art Wear by Sociale Revolution. Sociale Revolution is a collective aimed at making art more accessible and upfront by encouraging its use for social debate. The group states “We’re giving artists a grand state and making their art more accessible, all while giving back to our cultural roots.” This new Art Wear Kickstarter project is an extension of this vision, allowing artists to expand the influence of their work beyond the galleries and into the hands (or onto the bodies) of fashion-forward people everywhere for a truly unique movement of personal expression.
