Holiday Brand Favorites with Nick Lenzini

Nick Lenzini is the mastermind behind the brand Holiday, a wildly popular Los Angeles-based streetwear line inspired by the 90s, by music, and by anything else Nick dreams up.

You may know Nick as the stylist and merch guy for Brockhampton, which would be more than a full-time gig for most, but Nick isn’t like most people. Holiday is his band and his identity. Holiday is based around the concept of releasing a new line of limited edition streetwear items (and much more) every major Holiday.

These are some of our favorite prints showcasing Plastisol Inks, Waterbased Inks, DTG Printing, Sim-Process Printing, and our Finishing Services, with some of our favorite blanks of all-time, like Comfort Colors, Independent, and more.

Brockhampton Limited Edition El Rey Prom Merch

Brockhampton created history last December by selling out the El Rey in Los Angeles 3 nights in a row. It was a wild goal, met with vivid enthusiasm from fans, who greeted the group coming off their incredibly successfull Love Your Parents tour.

Not satisfied with just offering their fans killer performances, they stepped it up and designed El Rey exclusive merchandise, including a Prom T-Shirt and Hoodie, and Sold Out El Rey Long Sleeve T-Shirt. These blanks were hand-inspected by members of the band to ensure they meet their standards of quality.

The Sold Out Long Sleeve used Simulated Process (Sim Process) printing to create the photographic quality right chest, to go along with a 2 color pocket print, a 1 color sleeve, and custom size tags.

The Prom T-Shirt and Hoodie also used Sim-Process printing for a photographic quality center chest, recreating the photo provided perfectly.

These items, in keeping with the El Rey theme, sold out almost immediately.

Were you lucky enough to cop one, both, or even all 3? We hope so, because these are some of the hardest to find Brockhampton collectors items and will surely get even more sought-after as the band continues to rise to the top.

Brockhampton Love Your Parents Tour Merch

In January 2018, Brockhampton embarked on their most ambitious tour to date, the Love Your Parents tour, featuring exclusive artwork including intimate family photos and personal designs as a collaborative effort with all members of the band.

This was a 3 month tour lasting through March, beginning in Dallas, up to Canada, and back, with two sold-out encores in Phoenix.These would have been very challenging prints for any ordinary print shop, luckily, our production team and printing crew has a combined 30+ years of processing artwork for simulated process, a technique that utilizes multiple color inks to recreate full color, photographic quality images.

This line pushed the limits for Brockhampton, including 19 different designs, custom sewn hoodies where we took the Forest Green hoods from blanks and fashioned them to Black hoodies for a Frankenstein effects (this was an exclusive item to members of the band and personnel only), t-shirt, long sleeves, pullover hoodies, fleece blankets, drawstring bags and much more.

Here are some shots of a few of our favorites:
