In September 2016, 50%DANGEROUS teamed up with musician Shola Aurora to create a collaborative fashion ensemble for Shola’s upcoming December musical tour in Japan.

Shola Aurora is the former singer of New York City-based visual rock band Sol Ardour, which is currently on hiatus. As a songwriter and producer, Shola pursues his first venture as a solo artist creating sounds influenced by the musical genres of visual kei , goth, metal, glam, rock, and experimental music while living in NYC.
The theme of the look came from the new look and sound of Shola’s latest work. Splashes of amethyst decorate the bold black design and brought a punk rock flair with netting and pleather restricting the color palate.

Broken into three pieces, the look features an overcoat, sleeveless asymmetrical shirt, and custom-tailored pants.
The overcoat is made of jet black minimal stretch denim, layered with countless strips of entangled pleather. Deep purple pleather embellishes the top of the coat, while muted with netting overlay. The shirt is created out of a breathable purple polyester with hand-painted artwork featured on the front.

The shirt is sleeveless to help fight against the heat of stage lights and has a dramatic asymmetrical bottom cut design. The pants are like-minded to the jacket with jet black denim featured alongside the dark purple pleather and netting. Hand-painted artwork is also featured across the legs of the pants with the design of a dragon portrayed in Shola Aurora’s recent logo.
