Grammy Award-winning artist Miguel has unveiled the debut collection for his new sustainable fashion brand S1C (Schedule 1 Concepts).

S1C’s first collection features eight new styles in limited quantities and includes t-shirts, a hoodie, a kimono top, a tee-shirt dress, limited-edition pants, and a tote bag available in two distinct colorways. The collection is available to shop in the U.S. and Canada on the S1C site.

“S1C is the reflection of the DIY attitude I got from my family and the punk and skate scene in San Pedro,” said Miguel. “I couldn’t find clothes I wanted to wear that were also responsibly produced so I decided to make them myself.”

Made in Los Angeles, S1C is committed to sustainability. All products from the debut collection use sustainability compliancy including the totes, which are made from eco-twill 60 percent recycled plastic water bottles and 40 percent organic cotton, while the tees and hoodies are all USSA Eco Life 50 percent recycled/50 percent BCI Cotton Jersey material.

Prior to today’s debut collection drop, last year, Miguel dropped two shirt styles to support important and timely social causes with both styles quickly selling out after they dropped. Net proceeds from the first shirt, the “Social Distancing Expert” long sleeve t-shirt, were donated to DirectRelief.org to provide masks and equipment for frontline workers. The second shirt style, the “Destroy Systemic Racism,” was recently restocked and limited quantities are currently available here. A portion of net proceeds from these shirts will benefit BLD|PWR, which aims to increase action and civic engagement to undo systemic oppression and state violence at the intersection of gender, immigration, economic, educational, environmental, and racial justice movements.

And earlier this month, Miguel released his new EP, Art Dealer Chic Vol. 4 via ByStorm/RCA Records. In addition to his new EP, he recently launched a new series, “Beats for Breakfast,” featuring Miguel and chef Jeremy Fall on Facebook Watch. With a new episode each week, fans can head to Miguel’s official Facebook page where he and Jeremy Fall will cook up food and beats while having conversations driven by the featured menu item. The first 8-episodes were created by Miguel, who executive produced the series with Jeremy Fall, and production by Tact Media alongside Freenjoy. The series was directed by Daniel Russell.
