Civilist Ends the Year Partnering With Artist Joe Roberts for Its Winter Collection

Berlin skate shop Civilist has debuted its Winter 2020 lookbook, and this year, they have partnered with mixed-media artist Joe Roberts aka, LSD WORLDPEACE for an outside-the-box collection.

Roberts is a familiar collaborator in the streetwear world, having come to fame working with Supreme back in 2017 and designing for San Francisco-based skate brand GX1000. In the past decade, Roberts made his name creating mixed-media pieces heavily inspired by his exploration of psychedelics. His psychedelia is most prevalent through his incorporation of a Basquiat-like perspective of surrealism to cartoon images.

With this collection, Civilist utilizes Roberts’ unique view of the world to create never-before-seen graphics for their tees and hoodies. Roberts revamps the Civilist branding in various interpretations, adding the distinctiveness of his artistry to the collection. Though most Long-Sleeve and Short-Sleeve T-Shirts, and sweaters come in a standard black and white colorway, it is the prints that truly make the understated pieces stand out. Roberts’ designs are unexpected and fans can expect a slew of unconventional collage graphics such as a black and white image of a young man’s floating head crying hell-fire tears on the Civilist branding, all held up by a Nightmare Before Christmas-like cartoon skeleton.

Other pieces to be expected include an on-brand LSD Worldpeace kaleidoscope graphic-tee, the Kanpai Tee in White and Old Yellow which depicts a naked silhouette of a woman sipping on a martini, and the Peace Skull Tee highlighting an arcane outline of a screaming skull. The collection also includes a variation of accessories such as logo-adorned baseball caps, beanies, and face masks in a wide range of colorways including deep purple, classic navy, desert tan, and cerulean blue.

The entire collaboration is now available online at Civilist and pieces range from $25 to $105 USD.

In case you missed it, PORTER and Gundam have come together to create a new collection of messenger bags.
