Since the first time I saw it, the Parental Advisory sign has held an alluring mystique for me. A symbol of the rawest Hip Hop, the stuff that my grandparents wouldn’t appreciate me listening to, the label has acted as a benchmark for all that’s illicit, violent and pornographic. Basically the good shit.
Realising the allure, fashion designers have allowed the Parental Advisory sticker to creep into clothing. Most recently, Alexander Wang splashed the symbol across the chest of a sweater that’s sheer in places. The placement of the familiar logo acts as a tongue in cheek play on the wearer’s body as the explicit content in question.
Though Wang’s created a hell of a desirable item for next season, this Sprayground backpack is one way to incorporate the PA sticker into your style on a more regular basis; daily even. With the addition of another desirable print right now, the marijuana leaves add an eye catching element to the bag’s overall look.
I constantly struggle to find a backpack that doesn’t make me look like a schoolgirl and with the right touch of debauchery, this Sprayground masterpiece is unlikely to give off a youthful look.
If the Parental Advisory backpack is a little too loud for your style, Sprayground have an incredible selection of printed bags in various styles. The Money Stacks Duffle bag is a favourite with the Flatbush ZOMBiES who are often spotted carrying stacks of dead presidents.
Sprayground is astocked at Richmond Classics in the UK.
