    Defiantly one off my favourite brands out there hixsept from France combines graffiti clothing with general fresh design

    [​IMG]

    Hixsept was born as the result of a fusion between the ideas of two French graffiti artists: Hëx and Hept. Being precursors in adapting graffiti elements to clothing, they constantly try to blend art, graphic design and confection. The make has always tried to be on the edge, the key being creating and exhibiting.
    The surfaces are constantly explored and mixed towards "the irregular, the opposite, the asymmetrical, the out of order, the incidental". The logo of the make, the copyleft (a flipped over copyright sign), sums up it's concept.
    The artistic activities surrounding Hixsept makes it a committed make, a graphic agitator through urban art.


    AROUND CLOTHING...


    To open ones eyes to capture images, movements, unexpected objects: the urban environment becomes an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Stage settings are being improvised; the pedestrians, like the pigeons, become the actors of space; usual objects are "hi-jacked" from their original function.
    The visual impact is transformed into creative energy.
    Hëx and Hept are constantly looking for new ideas. The logos, choices of prints and colours, the words, the images provide meaning to each item of clothing.
    Through different themes, each collection gives a reason for reflection. A sentence, a picture or even a pattern, becomes the introduction. It is then each and everyone's task to appropriate the article of clothing and let the concept live.
    The inspiration from graffiti and the graphical technique of the designers is always visible. The collections are ruled by concern for the cut, the detail and the deviation of all basic elements of textile. The designs are destructural; patterns such as dogstooth check are distorted; the homogeneity of the prints is altered by slashes of paint. Hixsept takes possession of the jacquard pattern or the colours used for the world champion jerseys and transforms them to suit there own frame of mind. The make often finds inspiration in everyday objects and urban environment (brick walls, wire netting etc).


    MEN COLLECTION


    >Hixsept and the pigeon
    The pigeon is the symbol of the men's collection. Actor of the urban space, it has been appropriated by Hixsept to identify their men's collection.
    The irregular and the man (men's collection)
    For all the collections for Hixsept men, Hëx and Hept have worked on the opposite, the asymmetrical, the disturbing, the incidental related to fabrics, prints and sewing. The articles of clothing are comfortable and practical to adapt to the everyday life of the urban actor.


    LADY COLLECTION
    Hixsept plays with the instantané, French for Polaroid, a perfect tool to reach the impossible: to make ephemeral emotions. The clothes line for women, named "instantanée", is following this concept.
    Spontaneous and dynamic, the girl wearing Hixsept wants to be comfortable in her clothes and is in close relation ship with what she is wearing.
    The colours, materials and forms of the Hixsept articles have a visual impact: femininity, fragility, comfort, eye catching detail...
    The deconstructed cuts and the mix of colours symbolise the refusal to platitude.Aside from the walls

    "OUTSIDE THE WALL"
    Beyond clothing, Hëx and Hept are always searching new surfaces, materials and techniques. As a result of various encounters they multiply the amount of collaborations.
    Whether organising exhibitions or creating communication mediums, Hixsept, the image producer, re-inoculates its style. Passion is guiding the outbursts of creativity. The key is art and the search for aesthetics.

    "...les années 80, date d'apparition des premiers graffiti..."

    translates into the 80's when graffiti first appeared

    if you're gonna make clothes based on graffiti you should at least have a basic knowledge of it's history....fuck this shit..no love
