HUMAN the collective believes in the power of personal style and its capacity to facilitate a deeper connection between who we are and where we’re headed next. HUMAN the collective designs bold and versatile clothing for people who possess the courage to embrace their authentic self.
The Fall DEMO collection is an artistic representation of our philosophy on life: Live passionately. Break boundaries. Be provocative. Challenge social norms.
HUMAN the collective offers high-quality, versatile pieces with an edge. We design wardrobe staples that serve as a canvas for personal style. Our jackets can be worn however you please - as an accent, a focus piece...hell, make it your personal uniform.
Our brand celebrates your right to wear what you want, when you want, and how you want. That’s why every garment in the DEMO collection is unisex. Our pieces are perfect for men, women, and everyone in between.
This mini collection gives a sneak peek into what HUMAN the collective is all about. Our collection is available in sizes 1 through 5. Please refer to our size chart for detailed measurements that will help you find the perfect fit.
Alas, The Fall 2017 DEMO Collection...
EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER PRICE: $140 (RETAIL PRICE: $165)
The CHAPTER Jacket is a spirited and shameless rebellion from the outdated gender binary. This garment starts with traditionally masculine features - button-flap chest pockets, classic track jacket styling, and a slightly oversized fit. These features are juxtaposed with something traditionally feminine -- semi-sheer black tulle fabric. More details on this piece below.
EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER PRICE: $148 (RETAIL PRICE: $175)
Throwback paneling and a bold color-block motif make HUMAN’s MIDNIGHT Bomber an instant statement piece. A black satin base keeps this jacket classic at its core, while midnight blue raglan sleeves keep things edgy and playful. We incorporated blue into this jacket as a representation of new ideas and personal discovery and black as a symbol of strength to embody the multi-dimensional essence of the human experience. More details below.
EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER PRICE for:
- Original DEMO: $160 (RETAIL: $190)
- HUMAN graffiti: $220 (RETAIL: $260)
- CUSTOM: $235 Basic / $315 Full (RETAIL: $295 / $375)
The inspiration behind this jacket came from the craving to represent a juxtaposition of rules/regulation and a form of rebellion. We started with the construction and the print of the jacket and, well, the ideas snowballed from there. We scoured NYC for local artists who were passionate about our mission.
HUMAN the collective has partnered with local NYC graffiti artists, Menace Two and SIGNAL (their graffiti names) to tag the back of our DEMO jackets.
We want to give YOU the opportunity to express your creativity - not only with our clothing, but ON our clothing. So, we are excited to offer EXCLUSIVE GRAFFITI CUSTOMIZATION on the back of our DEMO Jacket in collaboration with Menace Two and SIGNAL.
You'll collaborate with HUMAN and our artists to develop personalized artwork on your very own DEMO jacket. HUMAN’s collaboration with graffiti artists is a statement of our support for individuals who are fearless in their pursuit of self-expression.
