Awake NY\u00a0and\u00a0BornxRaised have joined forces for an expansive collection inspired by New York and Los Angeles culture. The collection consists of co-branded hoodies and t-shirts, chore coats, double knee work pants and pocket tees created in collaboration with Carhartt WIP. The offering aims to encapsulate the creative energy of each metropolis. Tees and hoodies alike both don BornxRaised signature Olde English font, interspersed with Awake\u2019s flowing script motif, co-branded graphic hits and cartoon characters that range from Mickey Mouse to Hot Stuff the Little Devil and a praying cherub. Awake NY\/BornxRaised On the other hand, the Carhartt WIP workwear boasts embroidered graphics and provides the collection\u2019s standout style: the familiar chore coat, presented in tan and black with intricate embellishments on its back. Awake NY\/BornxRaised \u201cI respect the work that Spanto and 2Tone do to support the local culture of Los Angeles, and we take a similar approach to New York communities through Awake NY,\u201d says Awake NY founder\u00a0Angelo Baque. \u201cAs this collection straddles both coasts, there will be two parts to local give-back. 100% of the proceeds from a co-branded Carhartt WIP Pocket T will be split, donated to New York\u2019s New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) nonprofit and Los Angeles\u2019 NELA United for Students.\u201d Spanto\u00a0of BxR echoes Baque\u2019s statement, saying \u201cWe created BornxRaised to bring a voice to communities that are being pushed out of Los Angeles, and are happy to see Angelo do the same for New York. By working with charities that uplift the beaten down areas where we come from, we help young people get out from under the weight of economic and societal issues beyond their control. This project will bring some funding to charities that we respect, but on a higher level, it helps us continue to assert ourselves as a voice for the neighborhoods that keep getting pushed out of the way on both coasts.\u201d The Awake NY x BornxRaised collection is expect to hit on the\u00a0BornxRaised webstore\u00a0January 15 at 12 PM PST, all proceeds from the collection will benefit the charities.
