    You Gotta Let Him Know

    Sometimes I worry that we've all become so self aware, apathetic, and frigid that we lack the ability to receive a positive, earnest message. Back in 1993, when Queen Latifah was still a rapper, she dropped what may be her biggest hit ever, U.N.I.T.Y. It was a song that spoke out against the disrespect of women in society, addressing issues of street harassment, domestic violence, and slurs against women in hip-hop culture. See, the thing is, the song was a bit of a rallying cry for women, but there was nothing witty, cynical, or even coded about it. It was sincere and straightforward and set to a dope beat. I bring this up because I fear that in today's hyper-aware culture a song like U.N.I.T.Y. would be received as too didactic and corny, never even making an impact. Anyway, I didn't expect to go off on a think piece, so I'm gonna leave this here. I will however, mention this Unity Shirt from Needles. I doubt they had women's rights or Queen Latifah in mind when they named it, but if the shirt reminds you of positive messages and that we have to continue fighting for not only women's rights, but the rights of all types of underprivileged people, then I think this shirt is doing a pretty great job.

    Needles

    Needles is the in-house label from Japan's Nepenthes group, designed by its founder, Keizo Shimizu. Over the past several years, the brand has established a dedicated following not only in Japan, but throughout the world due in part to Shimizu's knack for pushing boundaries of construction and design. Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility within the quirky world of Needles: from snakeskin velour tracksuits to reconstructed military jackets to organic linen pants, Shimizu's creativity in fabrication is unmatched. Yet despite his innovation, Shimizu creates references points that make each piece in his collection relatable and wearable.
