Dimepiece LA has been one of the premiere women’s street wear brands for about 8 years. The line always stands out for their unique designs (like the infamous Cam’ron bikini) and their new Summer 2014 line is no different. The latest installment features crop tops – both shortsleeved & tanks, socks, a jersey, dashiki inspired tops and a super cute Tupac tank-ini that you’ll want your hands on immediately!

We spoke to them to get some insight on the latest rollout for this season.

Our inspo behind this collection was a going with the flow attitude of Summer. “Ride My Vibe” Summer capsule collection is a casual, sporty chic assortment and a kind of portrayal of real girls in their real lives. It’s sporty chic, wearable and relatable.

Why did we decide on Tupac as the focal print for the summer?
We love Tupac; growing up in LA we were heavily influenced by his music and social views. And also; behind every strong man is an even stronger woman. I was super influenced by Tupac’s mother. Afeni Shakur, who is a business woman, philanthropist, former political activist and ex-Black Panther. Tupac has been like a character in the cast of our influences growing up and our new swimsuit with him in a romanticized style on the front is an ode to that.
