I was brainstorming ideas on what to name each piece for BiYu, Part I. My girlfriend suggested song titles. As I thought about it I asked her for the title of the song playing in the background. "Rush" she said. I was like "...this is it..."

      Westside  Released 10.1.2016     










              Model: M.L.  



           Light blue denim and olive green diagonal lines sewn  Olive green triangle pocket sewn with light blue denim top  Light blue denim and olive green sleeve ends sewn            Why "W$ Boi" by SiR?   Formerly titled "Habit"   My girlfriend suggested the song "Habit" by Tove Lo. This was the title of the shirt until right before the launch of this website. As I looked at the photos with the music there was a different feel that needed to be found. Meanwhile I had been playing SiR's EP "Her Too". I had never listened to SiR until my girlfriend showed him to me and TDE was tweeting about early February, 2017. I played this EP out in one night pretty much. It just made sense to name this shirt "Westside" after SiR's "W$ Boi".

I played this album out on a rediscovered mission right at the same time I was creating this piece. "Proof" is a dope song and a dope name for a shirt.

This piece highlights the fact that these are the some of the most war-torn nations in the world. And given media bias we aren't exposed to their situations in depth. Kanye West often sheds light on facts whenever there's a chance. For better or for worse. This shirt was made to spark conversation.

We set boundaries for ourselves to keep us from getting out our dreams. The blown-out painted look on this body suit acknowledges that we don't need to  bound to  any one thing. Break out of the borders you've created.

      Mobius  Released 11.12.2016     










              Model: J.H.  



           Hand embroidered black and white threaded lettered read "Divided We"  Painted leaves in white and black by Lazar Williams  White and black fabric sewn on sleeve ends  Black leather patch with hand embroidered "BiYu" in white thread            Why "Mobius" by A Tribe Called Quest?  A mΓΆbius is a surface with only one side and one boundary. I used this word to symbolize that there has always been "one right way to live", systematically in America. What I'm acknowledging is no secret there's a generational issue that nurtures the divide between black and white. Divided we fall. as the shirt reads. Also the new Tribe album is straight fire. A reunion of hip-hop legends that doesn't disappoint.

           "Mosaic" hexagon centerpiece pieced by geometric shapes  Random geometric shapes sewn on sleeve forearms            Why "Junie" by Solange?  Listen to "A Seat at the Table" and you'll understand why I had to use a song from the track list for a shirt name. This album was on repeat for a solid month. So smooth. If you haven't listened to this album, you should. "A Seat at the Table" is in contention for album of the year (2016).

This piece is an ode to Milwaukee. So, I had to keep it all Milwaukee. J-Lamo released the debut EP "Writer's Block" in Fall of 2016 and dude snapped. There's 6 tracks and not a single song is wasted. J-Lamo reps Milwaukee and Wisconsin seamlessly... Milwaukee get bucks

           3 velvet triangles sew  Cut & sewn fabrics for mountain tops            Why "Gabby" by The Internet?  I made this piece on a Friday night from 8 pm to 3:30 am. Meanwhile I had The Internet's "Ego Death" on repeat. "Gabby" bangs and is super dope. In honor of Syd and The Internet I had to honor this piece with a song title.

The Weeknd dropped his 3rd studio album "Starboy" two weeks prior to the release of this piece. My girl and I debated the best song on the album. I truly believe "True Colors" is one of the best off the album. And the title resonates perfectly with the concept of this shirt; seeing that the four Chicago stars are colors of the Blackhawks.

              Model: C.H.  



           Hemmed crop top  Bleach dipped sleeves  Distressing throughout whole piece  South Korea national flag patch sewn  Black leather patch sewn with hand embroidered "BiYu" in royal blue            Why "On & On" by Erykah Badu?  C.H. (model) and I took these photos the morning of the release at like 7 am. As I was setting up the Instagram post I was at a loss for a song title. "On & On" by Erykah Badu was on the radio the night before and randomly was next on my iTunes shuffle list. It was a sign. I texted my girl and she said it was perfect. BiYu, Part I was missing some neo-soul.

           Wisconsin state flag patch sewn  Navy blue with white polka dot fabric sewn sides  Navy Blue hand embroidered state outline of Wisconsin            Why "Cold" by Post Malone?  Post Malone's debut album dropped early December and I was all about it. His unique style in just doing whatever he felt really resonated with me and the brand. Just do you, at all time. I chose "Cold" because it was real cold that day of the photoshoot. And its Wisconsin.

      XO  Released December 31, 2016     










              Model: R.P.  



           Cut crewneck with no hem allowing natural fray  3 centered diamonds sewn in black, denim and red  Denim diamond not hemmed to allow fraying  White threaded diamond outlines line the bottom  Denim patch not hemmed on sleeve  Distressed shoulders  Black leather patch with hand embroidered "BiYu"            Why"XO/The Host" by The Weeknd?  The Weeknd's trilogy album set was so cold. I think it was his best work and I don't think we'll never hear anything like it again. Similar to BiYu products, it was a one-of-a-kind piece. His sound is so unique I had to use something off the trilogy.
