S1X was founded in Brussels by Ida Josefiina and Tiina Peuna. The brand works with different contemporary artists to create collections that are each curated and designed to raise awareness and initiate dialogue around a social issue.
CEO and creative director Ida Josefiina explains the brand’s purpose, “Art is a powerful tool to fight polarisation and should have more space in society. Through our items we allow people to identify with the ideas behind contemporary art without posting a selfie from a gallery or purchasing an expensive original piece.”
All of the brand’s collaborations will be launched on their website together with articles, podcasts, and other media, sharing the ideas behind the artworks and creating conversation. S1X believes that art and streetwear share a common goal: broadening the reach of artists’ ideas and making critical thinking more approachable to larger audiences. All pieces are also sustainably produced with organic and recycled materials, using high-quality print techniques and papers.
