MATE the label is the kind of clothing brand that feels much more like a collection– a collection in the truest sense of the word, like My Little Pony’s or trading cards. Once you know the true perfection and comfort of these pieces, you will want, you will need more of them in your closet. Their pieces feel one-off, though they are not, and they tend to sit apart from the pack. They are the you can’t sit with us cool kids of my wardrobe. I literally collect these pieces. They are consistently a perfect blend of style and comfort, which I prize about most else. They are as they say, for the dreamers, the doers, sun-seekers and moon chasers.
Their newest collection Desert Rising, recently released, is shown off by a sunset sultry lookbook shot by Bryan Carr. The shoot features mega babe and Live FAST Issue No. 1 contributor Abby Brothers. She rocks MATE’s classic muscle tee look like they was made for her, and barely-there jean shorts. The shoot is part Breaking Bad and part Thelma And Louise, sans Louise. Shot on a ranch near Joshua Tree, a desolate desert-esque location just shy of some border. It makes me feel like it’s half past time for a Tecate and a lot of online shopping. Enjoy kiddos xoxo
