Last month Vogue announced ASAP Ferg's new Traplord collaboration with Uniform, the sustainable conscious brand that provides uniform for children in Liberia through every purchase. The menswear and womenswear line is inspired by military clothing and consists of cargo pants, military jackets, a camo parka jacket, tees, and more.
Founded by Chid Liberty in September 2016, Uniform is ethically produced in Africa, and for each item sold, a school uniform is produced and given to a local child. Earlier this month, Ferg had the opportunity to travel to Liberia with Liberty and meet the women who work in Uniform’s factories. He also spent time with the kids who would receive the new uniforms, as captured by photographer Daniel Arnold in the images above. “These uniforms are really how you decipher the kids in Africa,” Ferg says. “You see a lot of them in the streets because they can’t afford a uniform and therefore can’t go to school.” He adds that “providing them with free uniforms not only enables these kids to get an education, but I think it makes them happy and empowered—I’m a strong believer in dressing the way you want to be.”
In April, Ferg traveled to Liberia to visit the factories where the uniforms are made and to visit schools. The exclusive menswear edit of Traplord x UNIFORM for Bloomindale's will be available both online and in-store beginning May 15th. The full menswear and womenswear Traplord x UNIFORM collections will be available at www.traplord.com later this summer.
