Public School didn’t have to go too far to find its newest face for the latest collaboration with New Era. Queens native and hip-hop icon, Nasir Jones models the latest New Era collaborative headwear collection. Nas is seen wearing the New York Mets “PSNY” dad cap and the “Where NY Lives” snapback.
“When you think of New York leaders, especially in the context of a Yankees or Mets hat, there’s no other person that comes to mind before Nas. Growing up in the city in the early and mid-90′s, around the time when Illmatic dropped, was like a sociology lesson. Nas was both painstakingly real and beautifully poetic at the same time. He was able to sum up our entire city/universe in 10 songs. And so there was only ever one person that could fully do justice to this campaign and our ode to NYC” said designer Dao-Yi Chow.
The limited-edition collection will launch on Thursday, September 29th at the Public School x New Era pop up shop at 231 Bowery in New York City, and online shortly thereafter. Each cap retails for $75 USD.
