Phoenix and the Flowmingos came together for a partnership like no other. We spent months getting to know this group of talented artists. The collaboration capsule represents the heart, soul, passion, and dedication that is the Flowmingos. The designs embody the inspiring story behind their continuing journey. This group is destined for greatness and we are excited to watch them rise.
The Flowmingos, Josh, Joonas, Manuel and Alex, is a Jazz-Hop (fusion of Jazz and Hip-Hop) creation straight from the streets of Brooklyn. The gents met each other while studying at the New School in Manhattan and can be discovered busking at Washington Square Park, Brooklyn Bridge or many NYC Subway platforms. Their passion and drive for birthing a new genre and introducing it to the world is what inspired Phoenix to choose them to create our latest capsule.
Well connected in the Brooklyn rising talent scene, these artists can be found at all hours in their studio, mixing, re-mixing, and fusing novel sounds into their music. To Brooklyn locals, the Flowmingos are a household name, and have even collaborated with some pretty big names in the rap game, but they have bigger dreams to bring their music to powerhouse stages across the country.
The Phoenix x Flowmingos capsule is inspired by the heritage and passions of Josh, Joonis, Manuel and Alex. Though they each came from very different places and each discovered music in their own way, their individuality brought together, created a perfect fit. Look closely at the artwork on the garments and you will find the juxtaposition of elements that gave birth to the new genre these artists have created.
