Staple HO 26

In keeping with the tradition of supporting and showcasing artists within our line, Staple is proud to announce our latest collaborative capsule collection featuring the artwork of Naturel.  Hailing from Washington, D.C., Naturel is an up-and-coming artist known for his neo-cubist style and novel interpretations of street culture references, such as hip hop icons Pharrell, Kanye West, Notorious B.I.G., his signature skeleton icons, sneakers, liquor bottles, and nude figures. Naturel draws from experience, having been a veteran of the hip hop world and first started out as a rapper himself. He often inserts his own personal symbols such as red flowers into his work, and a “Jesus Piece,” an abstracted gold pendant, later produced by the streetwear jeweler, Mr. Flawless. High brow and low brow worlds collide within Naturel’s creative canvases and his work has attracted celebrity collectors and investors such as Spike Lee, Rihanna, and Lebron James.

For the Holiday 2014 season, the Staple x Naturel collaboration boasts an extensive 18-piece collection featuring tees, woven shirts, hats, fleece, and a varsity jacket. The entire collection will start hitting Staple retailers starting November 15th.

1-2-1 w/ COMMON.

1-2-1 w/jeffstaple ft. COMMON from staplepigeon on Vimeo.

In a prime example of life coming full circle, Common stopped by the Staple showroom to chat with jeffstaple, fifteen years after jeff had designed the artwork for his single on Rawkus Records titled “One-Nine-Nine-Nine.” In this latest episode of “1-2-1 w/jeffstaple,” the two hip hop veterans – from the perspectives of the music and design worlds – reminisce about old records and new projects, social responsibility and the creative process. The Chicago native speaks candidly about the inspiration behind his music and even recites a few bars. Common’s 10th album Nobody’s Smiling, released July 22, is a reunion with No I.D. as Executive Producer and features guest artists Vince Staples, Big Sean and Jhene Aiko.
