Born x Raised & SAINT Mxxxxxx Reunite For Second Collection


Following their initial team-up in 2022, LA streetwear brand Born x Raised has reunited with SAINT Mxxxxxx (aka SAINT MICHAEL) to release their second collaborative collection.

Founded by Japanese designer Yuta Hosokawa and LA-based artist Cali DeWitt, SAINT Mxxxxxx is known for its vintage-inspired aesthetic and wide range of references in its graphics, including subcultural symbols and religious iconography.

Crafted entirely in Japan, the new BXR x SAINT Mxxxxxx collection includes a satin varsity jacket with logo embroidery inspired vintage souvenir jackets. Other standouts include the hoodie and mock neck long-sleeve tee covered in tattoo-inspired graphics and featuring a stud-embellished co-branded logo. Completing the lineup are black and white mock neck blank tees with logo at the collar and a pair of co-branded socks.

The lookbook for the collection stars Cali Dewitt and longtime friend 2TONE, co-founder of Born x Raised. The imagery showcases the strong bond between the brands.

2TONE provides additional info about this collaboration in a recent Instagram post:

The @saint_mx6_official team came to my studio in early 2023, went through years of my sketches, took home a foot-high stack of drawings and paintings and weird ephemera/doodles, took it to Japan, scanned it in and then sent all the drawings back to @caramelbobby.

A few months later we started to see some samples and we were blown away (not a small feat over here). There are perfectly executed prints on every surface of the garments, even on the rib of the tee. They took what I thought was a bunch of scribbles and created art in the form printables the likes of which I’ve never seen before.

@saint_mx6_official created, manufactured and designed these goods and they set the prices. So before we all start losing our shit about the cost of this collection, re-read the above, do some research on that brand and also, don’t buy it if you don’t like the price. We will be back to our regularly scheduled pricing before you know it sweaty. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The collection by Born x Raised and SAINT Mxxxxxx drops Friday, May 3rd at 12pm PT on the BXR website.

Note that the collection has already released at SAINT Mxxxxxxx’s retail partners in Japan and sites like The Webster and LUISAVIAROMA.
