On The Rise: 12 Grain

I haven’t done any “On the Rise” articles lately because I realized I’m not good at writing much about fashion (I looked back at my other posts – and YUCK). Anywho, I wanted to give it another try since I don’t want this blog to be mainly about makeup & beauty. This next brand I’m going to talk about has to be one of my most favorite clothing brands to date – 12 Grain.

I accidentally came across this brand when I was looking for Imaginary Foundation, which I will be writing about a little later. I was just clicking random brands and clicked 12 grain since I’ve never seen it before. I saw this really nice shirt called, “Sneaker Head” and fell in love immediately. It was an image of a boy surrounded by shoeboxes and had tons of sneakers stacked on top of his head. I was lucky to find one of his shirts at a Zumies store where I was called, “Walrus Mask” (I believe) and had to purchase it right away. Its my favorite shirt of all time. All artwork for 12 Grain is by Sam Flores, an artist located in San Francisco. His art is really eye catching, innovative – everything is just so unique. I love that he uses lots of pastels and warm colors in his designs. I like the fact that 12 grain doesn’t have neon colored or super bright colored shirts like most brands are doing nowadays. I like that they’re basic colors and the designs itself draws the attention. I encourage everyone to check this brand out. Its definitely worth the look!

See more of Sam Flores’ artwork on his blogspot and do visit his main wesbite. For his clothing, do check Upper Playground or Digital Gravel.
