Sneakers continue to be an integral part of Hip-Hop fashion and culture. A brand that you should focus on is Maison de Une de Une, a luxury creator that supports sustainable fashion. The brand is led by Los Angeles artist Skelly.
Skelly was born in Inglewood, embracing all of the cultures of the city, specifically the ambition, energy, and success of Kobe Bryant, who he cites as his Jesus. Skelly notes Dapper Dan as his greatest inspiration in fashion. He also notes himself as a lifelong musician and a former DJ turned producer and emcee. However, his list of titles includes CEO, Sneakerhead, photographer, designer, just an all-around hustler.
When creating new work for Maison de Une de Une, Skelly notes all materials are obtained in small batches from Los Angeles-based fair-trade vendors and each piece is handcrafted. All valuable items are designed and made by masters in their fields. With the art, fashion pieces are manufactured to order and only made once in the size specified. Only serious collectors are permitted to enter.
The primary focus of Maison de Une de Une is on artists and their fans, with the goal of giving them a voice and a platform. These are highly limited editions, with earnings going to COMMUNITIES that have been rendered invisible as a result of today’s systemic social justice and environmental-climate challenges.
The collaborations offered to sneaker collectors are all official collaborations. Skelly and Maison de Une de Une collab with both artists and brands, but sometimes the brand use their own artistic license and the format of public art critique to make a statement about culture, and society. Every brand resold is bought directly from authorized retailers or directly from the brand and is 100% authentic.
