Our ATL pals, Pryourity, sent over the first delivery from their Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The first drop is the “Masters of Fate” hooded pullover made of 50/50 Poly-Cotton blend and features the “Masters of Fate” graphic. The hoodie is pretty light weight so perfect for those cool spring and summer lurking nights.
Masters of Fate is about symmetry, not necessarily homage to Salvador Dalí, but more so his beliefs on the duality of man that brings us to create, and inspire. The piece is a tribute to surrealism, the breaking down of perception, and the twisting of influences. According to Dalí, the rhinoceros horn is the most pure and divine geometric shape because it grows in a logarithmic spiral. Throughout his work Dalí featured the rhino horn as exploding particles, or as human beings made up of the horn. The decision to have the “F’s” meet in the center was a reflection of this perfect imbalance that also exists in us (sacred and profane, good and evil). By giving the graphic a harsher treatment with the Escher tones, it exposes a raw simplicity. Desire and dreams are represented in this piece; the desire for all is to carve out our own path; Masters of Fate symbolizes this.
