Launched as a fashion/art/music project last year by Bradley Soileau,
Blackfist represents an emerging fashion scene out of Los Angeles and
DIY designs that has long lived at the heart of American streetwear.
Volume two of Blackfist project is presented here for S/S 2016, called
“Hurts So Good.” Soileau drew inspiration from
an “80s thrash skate scene and added vibes from indie Troma films like
the Toxic Avenger series.”
Soileau first started in the industry as a model and had an interest in

everything he loves together. The collection adds a DIY feel but adds
rocker elements and limited edition pieces.
