Hickey S/S 2010
If you checked out Prepidemic recently you saw the bombshell that a new season from the now defunct Hickey has just gone live. I talked to former Hickey designer Aaron Levine about it and he confirmed that this is indeed the last of his work for the brand. He told me that the collection was the best out of all his work at Hickey and that he probably would not be getting credit for the gear. Well let's give some credit where credit is due because the stuff really is incredible. Highlights for me include the classic looking polos and the linen lined fishtail parka, which are just a small part of the extremely well edited collection. Overall it's more of the same, but when the same is this good everybody wins. Seeing what is sure to be the last remnants of one of my favorite brands is a little bittersweet though I am extremely excited that there is still an opportunity to grab some stuff I love and to give one of my favorite designers some deserved shine. Check out my favorites below.
