New com-raid website

Good friend and com-raid founder Anthony Costa has this week released a new website for the brand which has a strong focus surrounding street wear and street art, particularly as he says, when it has a revolutionary pulse. With a history in politics and a real sense of social responsibility he has developed a website which will now more accurately portray his interests and truly help to strengthen the brand.

If you don’t know com-raid is a Melbourne based label with a strong focus on graphics and thought provoking imagery while not compromising on their quality of production.

The site has been kicked off with an amazing interview featuring Emory Douglas, the Black Panther Party’s Minister of Culture. Emory himself is responsible for the artwork in the Black Panther newspaper during the 60s and 70s and is still a real symbol of empowerment so be sure to check it out.

This is easily one of my favorite brands and it is pretty uncommon to see me not wearing it, not only because of my friendship with Anthony but also because of what he stands for and the quality of his work. Check out the website below.
