Los Angeles clothing brand Skim Milk is becoming well known for it's witty graphics, bold word-play and genius collaborations. The first collaboration for the label was with the Ever-Indie-Dark-Prince himself, Ariel Pink, and was followed by another with photographer and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner.
During my phone conversation with SM's Creative Director Josh Scholl last month, he mentioned that the brand had been working on another collaboration. This time with the notorious former adult film star, Sasha Grey. Needless to say, I immediately praised him for his genius and placed an advance order for whatever he was brewing up. The kid won't stop, and we're excited to see what he has in store next.

***Sasha Grey is known for using sex as a means for self-exploration and a platform for experimentation and performance art before focusing her efforts full time on art, music, literature and film. In a similarly multi-dimensional way, Skim Milk (whose tagline is "clothing for high class low lifes") views t-shirts not merely as clothing, but as canvases for thoughtful art and humor. Their unisex collaboration which includes graphic t-shirts, sweatshirts and an embroidered bomber jacket will appear in stores in FW17, but on December 1st there will be a limited online pre-release and pre-order for the collection along with personalized autographed copies of Sasha Grey's new book The Juliette Society II: The Janus Chamber for sale.
