Rare Panther (@rarepanther) is one of our featured brands for July. The very rare brand is lead by up & coming artist and designer Reginald Sylvester “Slvstr©” who many of us were introduced to via IAMSU’s Album Cover for Sincerely Yours. The signature thunder bolt and panther and array of signature colors have made Rare Panther a visually appealing brand across the board. Sylvester draws inspiration from Japanese Anime among other things including his Bay Area roots. Rare Panther brands the tagline “For The Very Rare” which seems to celebrate rare occasions, rare collaborations, and young individuals who are making rare moves.The same way Nike puts a colorway on a sneaker, is the same way Rare Panther executes color schemes with their t-shirts and hats. As quickly as Slvstr is growing as an artist, Rare Panther is moving just as fast, now being carried at Hypebeast and Peas & Carrots. Visit rarepanther.com for all of your rare needs.
“When it comes to life, thunderbolts disrupt your thought pattern and demand your attention. The visual artistry of Reginald Sylvester does the same, yet his thunderbolts are attached to the retna of his famed central muse character simply named “Sly”. Creating a world of mystery, spirituality, wonderment, political/social stance and sexual innuendo for the sky blue hued, young panther cub is as natural as breathing for Reggie, a 26-year-old Bay Area native.” Via Slvstr.com
