For their second collaboration, both streetwear brands were inspired by a nostalgic trip down their childhood memories and the games they loved to play as kids. The collection is meant to tap into the child-like youth in all of us where we exude the freedom and ability to create while having fun. Since the collection was made available at the Daily Paper pop up in Ghana, it will also be available in stores worldwide and online starting from January 27th 2022. 

The collection itself features 6 limited edition pieces in classic green, blue, black and white colourways, taking on a playful aesthetic. Adorned with custom Daily Paper x FREE THE YOUTH graphics, the collection represents a true ode to a DIY childhood. Speaking about the new collaboration, set to hit their Daily Paper website tomorrow, co-founders of FreeTheYouth, Maposh, Joey and Kelly share:

“This collaboration with the Daily Paper family was a special one. It reminded us all of when we were young in the hood, where we group up. This was us, making things by hand out of whatever we could find – cans, scraps etc. – transforming it into something, cars mostly. It all started from an idea and through creativity, youth and joy, we were able to make something out of it. This creativity, this hope – this is what we are bringing to the people through this collection.”
