At the young age of 19, Los Angeles-based multi-creative Shane Gonzales made an impression on the fashion industry when he first introduced Midnight Studios onto the scene. Deeply embedded in the music and skateboarding scene of his hometown, Gonzales’ design aesthetic is reminiscent of the lived experiences and characters of his life. He grew up as a skateboarder in a small town in California, and his American-based fashion label takes on an avant-garde and non-traditional approach to rock n roll and youth street styles.
Midnight Studios is heavily rooted in music and youth culture, and is often recognized by its myriad of short slogans such as ‘Midnight,’ ‘Teenage Prayer,’ and ‘Piss Off.’ The label is well-versed in crafting tie-dye hoodies and a variety of other grunge-inspired graphic apparel, all of which combine punk and youth street styles in an anti-aesthetic manner. With that, we are excited to announce that Midnight Studios is the latest brand roster addition to FEATURE. The label’s delivery spotlights the Midnight Studios Machine T-Shirt. Composed of cotton, the tee is ideal for everyday wear, whether that means wearing it on its own or layering it with another apparel item. The silhouette is crafted entirely from cotton and spotlights ribbed detailing at the neckline. A flag label resides at the shoulder, while the screen-printed branding and phrasing at the front and rear finish the remainder of the look.
Another stand-out apparel item from Midnight Studios’ first delivery at FEATURE is the Midnight Studios Chandelier Varsity Jacket. The design is constructed from a premium blend of wool and polyester and includes additional polyester at the lining for added comfort. Leather contrasting is also placed, while a snap button closure offers a secure touch. Chenille patchwork is placed at the chest offering further spotlighting to the design. Welted hand pockets and a hidden interior zipper pocket add a functional touch, while the double-stripe ribbing seen at the cuffs, collar, and hem provide a detailed finish to the look.
Alongside the jacket is another must-have apparel item: the Midnight Studios Cherry Valley Hooded Sweatshirt. Composed of cotton, the sweatshirt features a drawstring hood with chrome tips. A headphone pocket is also placed, while the mesh hood lining offers an additional dimension to the design. The all-over screen-printed graphics and rib-knit trims finish the look.
