KEISER CLARK and 10K PROJECTS TEAM UP ON CAPSULE COLLECTION for THE REMIX PROJECT

Dropping for the first time at ComplexLand [2.0] June 16th-18th, Los Angeles luxury label Keiser Clark is teaming up with LA-based record label 10K Projects on a limited-edition capsule entitled “The Voices That Matter Most” with 100% of the proceeds from the collection going to The Remix Project, a registered 501(c)(3) that levels the playing field for youth from marginalized communities who are trying to enter into creative industries that range from recording arts, creative arts and business arts.

Together 10K and Keiser Clark are furthering their shared purpose in shining a light and uplifting The Remix Project whose vision is to provide high-quality training programs in some of the world’s most successful artistic disciplines - from music to fashion and beyond - as well as facilitate artist development and professional training spaces to help young artists thrive on the global stage.

The capsule is the perfect summer track set with a sweatshirt, sweat pant and sweat short done in a burgundy cotton terry featuring the tagline “The Voices That Matter Most” in a vintage inspired white chenille and combined logo embroidery.

AUTUMN WINTER 2020

ALBUS LEPUS

Languishing in that space between the idolization of and the fear of losing your hero, "Albus Lepus: (The White Rabbit)" is the third collection from Keiser Clark.

Reverberating the brand's gritty nocturnal glamour, there is a new depth of Neo-Noir from designer Marc Keiser, as he dives further down the rabbit hole beyond the symbolism of previous collections and draws from a personal narrative of sacrifice, love, and longing. This collection serves as both an ode to military heroes (who sacrifice for the protection of their nation, their way of life, their families) and a memoir of the home front (families and friends who long for the return of their loved ones).

The color palette draws heavily from the desertscape of the Persian Gulf surrounding Camp Patriot Naval Base in Kuwait, where Keiser's father served during the designer's childhood. Utilitarian cuts from the Autumn Winter 2020 collection were pulled from his father's actual military uniforms. In the military, uniforms embody a commitment to the values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. These are the same values his father had etched on the dog tag around his neck during his active duty.

The same uniform that can symbolize so much heroism, can also evoke past remembrances of pain, of suffering and longing. Like a cancer lurking in the shadows, those feelings and the dark places we go to with that fear, can consume each of us. We turn to fantastic stories, because these heroes inspire us, they offer us an escape - a hope, and a method of coping. It's in those heroes we discover our own strengths and learn to rise.

"I think now more than ever we need a hero, this is my hero story," says Marc Keiser, creative director and co-founder of Keiser Clark.

Set within Keiser's favorite dark twisted fantasy and inspired by stories like The Matrix and Nicolas Winding Refn films, his collection features classic cuts glossed in a dark new age modernity. Key pieces include updated takes on the classic M65 fatigue, MA-1 bomber, and pea­coat jackets given superhuman resolve with black patent leather detailing. Further styles include military-cut silk shirting in black, deep teal, and desert tan, a shadowy velour smokers suit with black patent piping, a mercurial black nylon tracksuit, graphic soft knits, and Keiser Clark's signature Racer Denim given new life this season with black patent leather and upcycled canvas from vintage World War II duffel bags.
