The stars have aligned for this latest collaboration project from Diamond Supply Co. Sam Smyth of Girl Skateboards was the man responsible for designing the Tiffany and Gucci Nike SB Dunk models back in 2004, and while the Tiffany’s were released and became an instant classic, the Gucci became an urban legend with sample pairs fetching some serious scratch on eBay over the years. Now that the RESN (Smyth’s IBC Crew alias) edition of the Nike SB Dunk High Premium is scheduled for release, Smyth has teamed up with Diamond Supply Co. for a super-fresh t-shirt collaboration to be released alongside the Gucci Dunks. The shirt features an interesting shmear of relevant elements presented in a simple stylish way.
The shirt sports an illustration of James Woods’ Lester Diamond character from Martin Scorsese’s Casino. Besides that his last name is Diamond, Lester also applies to the collab because of the extra-dope Gucci jacket that he wears in the diner scene of the film before getting roughed up by Ace Rothstein’s goons. Under the illustration is one of Lester’s creepier lines from the movie, with a “RESN for Diamond Supply Co.” shout-out on the back of the shirt. Look for the t-shirt to drop around the same time as the RESN Dunks some time next month. Via CtotheJL.
