Sunshine In the Middle of Nowhere
With his award-winning “Sun-Dyed in Texas” art installation, New York Sunshine’s John Margaritis
may have created one of the most unorthodox ways of breaking in our favorite fabric. John and the Install Team
built a Dickies twill-wrapped stick-frame house and billboard, leaving the structures to be worn by the desert
and all its elements—sun, dirt, wind, maybe aliens—for six months.
Fully broken in, sun-dyed, and blasted by the desert, twill from the zero-waste build was sent to the Dickies
factory, where it was repurposed as limited-edition Ike jackets and carpenter pants.
The full collab features graphic t-shirts, hoodies, headwear, and more pieces inspired by the Texas desert and
John’s original sun-dyed structures.
