On the heels of a successful launch of the premier collection in October, Diamond Supply Co. proudly announces its newest addition to its on-going collaboration with Ibn Jasper – a special Miami capsule released Saturday, December 8th 2012. The new capsule is designed specially for Lebron James’s store in Miami, UNKNWN, and in time for Miami’s premier world art show, Art Basel.Ibn Jasper is a member of DONDA, Kanye West’s new creative design team, and also West’s Personal Barber. It was natural for Ibn and Nick Tershay, founder, owner, and designer of Diamond Supply Co. to collaborate, as both have been friends in LA of similar circles of influence since Ibn moved out West from Chicago.
The Ibn Jasper Capsule for UNKNWN features the Jasper Shoe, re-created in a premium white snake suede, highlighted by Diamond Blue accents on the sole and tongue, with Miami orange on the inside. The shoe is adorned with gold hardware on both the back zipper and the eyelets. The Jasper Shoe is a sleek moccasin inspired sneaker, with a focus on luxury, complete with back zipper access, snake embossed leather, tassels, but all complete with a durable skateboarding cup sole – which is a nod to Diamond’s main product focus of skate hardware.The capsule features three key pieces, with the focus surrounding the Jasper Shoe, and inspired by Nick and Ibn’s shared love for skateboarding and style. Complimenting the footwear are two pieces of apparel, a pocket t-shirt and a longsleeve t-shirt, with sophisticated “DMND” branding and graphic hits designed by Ibn that tie back into the hat and shoe’s new colorway.
