Eric Rodriguez is back and reloaded with a new collection from his Miami-based clothing brand in Outsider. The name may bear some form of familiarity, due to the fact that the brand has had initial groundings in the scene as “Al Dente” (but has since moved on due to copyright issues). Trying to birth a new identity in street fashion, Outsider has paired up with Jo Pita and photographer Xavier Varela for the showcase of the F/W 2014 collection. The collection itself has four pieces in total, but the two most popular items that are modeled are labeled as “Big Business” (features a photo of New Jack City villain Nino Brown) and “Ghost Rider” (a design flip of a classic Iron Maiden album cover). The official lookbook (detailing each and every piece) for the F/W 2014 drop can be located right over here. It’s a rarity to see a brand bounce back after a few setbacks, so you can’t help but admire the dedication in Eric Rodriguez and his accompanying team.
