In the run up to this years Dekmantel Festival, the two Dutch powerhouses will release a capsule collection and four compilation EP’s represented by the best of the Dutch music scene to date.
Both deeply rooted in the Dutch capital it was only a matter of time for the close, longtime friends Patta and Dekmantel to get together for a collaboration. Patta is an important player in today’s international streetwear scene, with an exquisite footwear selection alongside an increasingly renowned own collection. Dekmantel gained international attention with their annually recurring festival and label releases by the likes of Juju & Jordash, Marcel Dettmann, and Robert Hood.
The Dekmantel x Patta Capsule Collection consists of six pieces: two T-shirts, a long sleeve shirt, a hooded sweater, a bucket hat, and a waist bag. The exclusive items from this collection feature various graphic prints and co-branding, representing both Patta and Dekmantel. The Dekmantel x Patta garments and accessories are scheduled for release in 4 individual drops, with each release including one of the four collectible, coloured, vinyl EPs featuring brand new music from renowned Dutch artists, who are also featured in the collection’s lookbook.
