Bad Bunch NYC presents ‘NY Legends Never Die’ collection for this Spring 2013. The label is paying homage to New York City and a couple of our city’s legends with this first piece, “Consequences of War” jersey.
Commencing with a head-nod to NBA hall-of-famer, Rookie of the year (’85), trendsetter and NY legend Patrick Ewing, the Consequences of War jersey draws inspiration from the staple home team, the New York Knicks and a commentary piece by Italian painter, Peter Paul Rubens.
The painting, commissioned by the duke of Italy at the time Ferdinando II de’ Medici, was Peter Paul Rubens response to the state of Europe’s spirit and appearance after the Thirty Years’ War. Using symbolism, Rubens highlighted the culture change, environmental alterations and new found world-views through his brush.
The fusion of both these elements have produced a creative collaboration on synthesizing art with pop culture and streetwear to create a better sense of awareness in the collective conscious of today’s youth to make for a better tomorrow.
