HELLRAZOR x PRO-Keds 2ND COLLABORATION "BLACKOUT EDITION”

This collaboration, entitled the Black Out Edition, comes from the riots caused by a power outage in New York in 1977. During that year, New York was hit by a power outage lasting more than 25 hours. The blackout illuminated the dark parts of NY and caused chaos. More than 1000 arsons occurred, over 1600 stores were attacked, there was looting and even murders. It is said to be an incident that actually illuminated the character of the country and helped spark changes in NY at that time. Is it possible that this sense of crisis and tension continues in our chaotic world, and also could these times help shine a guiding light in building the new world of the future?

Black Out Editionと名づけられた今作は、NEW YORK 1977にあった停電による暴動に由来します。1977年にNEW YORKは25時間以上にも及ぶ停電に襲われました。その停電は、NYの暗黒部分を照らし、カオスを巻き起こしました。1000回以上の放火が起き、1600店以上の店が襲われ略奪が起こり、殺人被害もおきました。それは、当時のNYの変化の中で国の性格を照らし出した事件と言われています。この混沌とした世の中に危機感と緊張をもたらし、新たな世界への構築の光にもなったのではないでしょうか?
