Based Bala Club member Rules, Swedish rapper Compulsive, a Mystvries remix of Rosso Corsa records Miami Nights 1984, and a ROOMS remix of L.A. chanteuse Lizzy Land. In exchange for an email address, the premium bundle includes a 1080p download of ROOMS stunning music video for single “bahna” which was released earlier this year.
Bribery Corporation’s initial collection seeks to create waves in the luxury streetwear world. A marriage of minimalism and quality, Bribery’s first line includes a series of branded 100% ring spun cotton tees in two colors, along with crewnecks and hoodies in three colors, heathered white, athletic heather and black. As far as outerwear, a 100% wool with premium leather sleeve Varsity Jacket is included in this collection along with a “Fuckboy” Bomber Jacket. Snapbacks and a “Give America Xans Again” spoof on Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat are also avalable. 100% of proceeds from “Give America Xans Again” hat will be split across the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NPR and the National Alliance for Mental Illness. This initial line will be a limited release; only 100 units of each piece in the collection will be printed, with the exception of the “Give America Xans Again” hat.
Bribery’s collection highlights their minimalist ethos, simple white on black pieces that leave branding and design in the spotlight.
“We’re really proud of this initial collection,” says Bribery head Rostislav Vaynshtok, a Ukrainian immigrant who moved to Miami at a young age. “It’s our first outing into the market and we’re trying above all else to showcase that we’re all about minimalism and a clear concise message. The name is no coincidence, it’s a product of our environment and a tongue in cheek anecdote about my past music career. Our release includes a lot of content, but naturally we couldn’t launch our initial clothing collection without a soundtrack. This compilation is something I’m extremely proud of, because so far I’ve been lucky enough to only release artists that are not only close friends of mine; but also extremely talented musicians” He continues “Our creative directors are so talented that it seemed like a no brainer to include the album art, a graphic zine and some flyers for Juicebox; a weekly Hip Hop and R&B party we’re starting up in April.” Rostislav Vaynshtok
