New Era XC Design Competition

posted in: Style & Culture | 6


New Era has partnered with 90 design graduates from prestigious art schools all throughout Europe for the New Era XC Design Competition. Each designer was given a DIY version of New Era’s popular 59fifty fitted cap, a kit of paint markers and challenged to express themselves using the hat as a base. Not limited to just the markers, many contestants have gone above and beyond in working on these fashionable platforms. One lucky winner will receive a £10’000 prize toward launching their art career. This brilliant exhibition will be making its rounds throughout European galleries during November and December.

London: 4th – 6th November (Dray Walk Gallery, Dray Walk, E1 6QL)
Berlin: 11th -13th November (CircleCulture Gallery, Gipstraße 11, 10119)
Milan: 18th – 21st November (Spazi Originale, Via Savona 55a, 20144)
Barcelona: 25th – 27th November (Angels, C. Dels Angels, 16 08001)
