Jean-Raymond’s homage to his predecessors also manifested in a collaboration with FUBU, the label co-founded by current Shark Tank investor Daymond John. He also debuted his latest capsule collection for Reebok, including several new sneakers and colorful new sportswear. The accessories include timely side bags that will undoubtedly end up on the backs of street style mavens next season.

Last season, Jean-Raymond worked with Cross Colours. This season, 1990s streetwear label FUBU, or For Us By Us, partnered with him on a capsule. "We wanted to highlight designers that weren’t seen," Jean-Raymond told Vogue. "These companies grossed hundreds of millions in their prime, but weren’t recognized in the same way that brands like Donna Karan were because they were considered urban, not fashion." As Jean-Raymond told Vanity Fair backstage, "What does a mundane Saturday look like when we’re just left alone? What is black leisure wear?" Well, it looks beautiful, luxurious, and crisp.

In addition to pieces from his ongoing collaboration with Reebook—incredible sneakers, especially in sand pink—the collection also included a capsule collaboration with FUBU. The back of the garments, and one crisp white cummerbund, read, “See us now?” Damn!


Family Is the Way to Humanize Fashion

For Jean-Raymond, being a young brand has meant not being recognized or taken seriously by the industry family — the same thing he thinks happened to well-established brands like FUBU and Cross Colours, which he collaborated with last season, for promoting black culture. Pyer Moss is up for a CFDA award this year, and during a recent presentation with Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, Jean-Raymond wore a shirt that read: “If you are just learning about Pyer Moss we forgive you.” The phrase “See us now?” was also printed on a few of his spring 2019 pieces, including a FUBU vest.
