Dirty Pineapple established itself as a messenger of forward-thinking at Spring Studios during New York Fashion Week (NYFW) with their soon-to-release ‘The New Street’ collection.

The brand founded by Elsa Zai and Nellie Wang not only empowered its loyalist through their Spring/Summer 2020 message but also, with inclusivity. Affirming Black and Brown models, their presentation on the catwalk, showcased beautifully. The ‘New Street’ echoed the designs of their signature ‘aftersex’ button-down shirts, ‘checkerboards insomnia suitpants,’ and their ‘easy shirt jackets.’ Alongside, a strobing backdrop, and Doc Martens’ sporting-models — Dirty Pineapple took their gender-fluid pieces to the next level at their latest presentation.

The Shanghai-based clothing brand established in 2016, and it’s garments have since circulated through much of the world. Dirty Pineapple centered the collection’s conversation around self-awareness. “From the emotional journey lived through one, or several relationships, personas are born. Dirty Pineapple explores the idea that personas from past relationships are recycled through life with one’s different partners. We call it recycled love,” explained the brand’s founder.
