Founded in NYC in 1992, NASA stands for Nocturnal Audio+ Sensory Awakening and organically grew to become highly influencial across music, fashion and that 90's DYI spirit, and as seen in the cult classic film "KIDS" by Hamony Korine and Larry Clark highlighting teens skate and street culture. NASA is often paralleled as the Studio 54 of the 1990's.
25 years later, it's an iconic lifestyle brand & apparel street wear line from designer Dj Scotto based off of NASA's infamous weekly lithograph print flyer designs, typically in a logo-jamming style.
in 2012, Dj Scotto colab'ed with online SOHO NYC boutique VFILES and put out a capsule collection then in 2016 licensed the original NASA logo to Louis Vuitton brand KENZO. The NASA and 90s resurgence trend exploded after our KENZO release, with everyone from Target to former YEEZY designer HERON PRESTON + NASA colabbing their take and versions, showing the strength of the trend authenticated/influenced accordingly.
