I first got whiff of the street-wear brand Born x Raised from none other than the great “Rude Jude” of Shade 45. Captivated by the name and the premises of the brand, I decided to feature Born x Raised back in the month of May.

Now teamed with Union Los Angeles , Born x Raised is once again off to an even stronger start with their latest collaboration. Boldly combining a “blend of Japanese Samurai rawness and LA West Coast vibes,Akhil Sesh, & Sir Fawn have managed to concoct one sick cocktail. Capturing the essence of the brand through a tastefully dark but artful photo-shoot, it appears Born X Raised & Union LA are ready for prime time.
Artistic Entrepreneurs Akhil Sesh & Sir Fawn have chosen a befitting example of the trendsetting rebellious attitudes that resonate within themselves as the focus of their latest hyper realistic collaboration.

Evident thru their work, impeccable quality is something that these Artists take seriously. Expect to be inundated with plenty more to come.
