Check out the special Okayplayer/Red Bull crewneck collaboration we did in anticipation of our Red Bull Sound Select event.

This crewneck collaboration between Red Bull Sound Select Present’s 3 Days in Philly and Okayplayer features art inspired by Micah Rich (who also created the key visual for the event), which is located on the front chest part of the sweater. The garment concept is brought to life by designer Tae Lee. with the back design featuring text that celebrates a socially and politically PROgressive state of being. The back includes a large, all-caps “PRO,” with words such as “Inclusivity,” “Intersectionality,” “Black,” “Peace,” “Love,” “Joy,” “Choice,” Immigration,” and many, many others accompanying it.

The mission statement behind the special crewneck is simple but explicit — inclusion.
