UNTY, Egypt’s biggest streetwear brand, recently launched a collection called Restock Remix, which essentially takes old designs that are mixed with different cuts and colors. Omar Mobarek, the founder of UNTY, decided to promote the collection with the help of local musicians. The creative music branch of the Restock Remix campaign is comprised of local artists remixing original live music in the studio, thus matching the concept of the collection. Commenting on this creative initiative, Omar told SceneNoise that, “music and fashion are two things that come hand in hand, and we wanted to create a campaign that helped us grow together.”
The aim of the collaboration is to reflect the authenticity of the brand, which is why UNTY chose the artists that they personally have a relationship with. The UNTY team thought it would be more apt to cater this collection to their strength - music - as opposed to just involving them in a photo shoot or fashion video.
The sessions were conducted with the help of El Warsha studio, which is managed by producer and musician Ahmed Kubbara and Hassan Seleit, who provided the instrumentals and drums in the tracks. Thus far, the sessions have featured Naila Marei and her song "Give a Little," and a rap by Smash Beats. Omar aspires for the series to continue beyond the collection.
