For part two of our latest editorial, featuring L.A.-based producer Knxwledge, the shadowy streets of his current hometown are swapped out for vibrant yellow and blue backdrops. This is the other side of Los Angeles: bright lights, bold colours.
It is something that Knxwledge is having to increasingly get used to. Since featuring as a producer on Kendrick Lamar’s groundbreaking To Pimp A Butterfly album, the spotlight on this prodigious producer has intensified. However, throughout it all, he has maintained his signature low-key style – while his beats are complexly layered with elastic soulful samples and smooth piano loops, the man himself remains decidedly understated.
Here, Knxwledge can be seen in pieces from our Carhartt WIP Spring / Summer 2017 collection, with summer-inspired stripes and seasonal camouflage motifs.
