From Black Ivy

2 Nov

A very cool project from the folks at Street Etiquette, The Black Ivy. Dope photos, styling & fiiine looking humanz –

From Travis Gumbs:

When Josh and I first started thinking about this concept, we saw it as the perfect opportunity to  intertwine style, character, education and art with a culture that we are not only familiar with, but actually a big part of. The Black Ivy serves as a tribute to the first black colleges that paved the way for our generation and created a common ground for hardworking, likeminded individuals. What the original Black Ivy league did for folks many years ago is what we strive to do today with individuals that inspire, motivate and spark the creativity of  beings around them.

I love, like always, that they include some OG photos – in this case from HBCUs of yesteryore. It hardly does it justice outside their slideshow, but here are some shots:

Check out the whole slideshow (with sound!), here.

And a video from the shoot, here.
