The Other Meaning of ‘OG’: XLARGE Fall/Winter 2016 Collection
What better way to finish their 25th-year celebrations than to release some XLARGE ‘OG’ prints. And when we mean ‘OG’ we don’t just mean Original Gangster, we mean ‘Original Gorilla’ — a slang term which used to exist in Los Feliz, California from 1991 till 2013; the same place where XLARGE opened their very first shop.
This season’s designs draws inspiration from Eli Bonerz, Adam Silverman and Mike D’s (Beastie Boys) love for ’60s sci-fi flicks and functional design by updating traditional pieces with a contemporary approach. Adding to this design cue, their Fall/Winter 2016 collection aptly pays homage to the comical era of streetwear when it was once about “humour, individuality and imagination”.
