Russian Streetwear Label Crime x Punishment Is Produced by Prisoners
Check out the brand’s debut lookbook.
Russia is fast becoming a hotbed of talent in the streetwear industry, with well-known names like Gosha Rubchinskiy and emerging labels like Bats hailing from Moscow and St. Petersburg respectively, and now another young brand can be added to the ever-growing list.
Crime x Punishment (or CXP) is a streetwear label with a difference. Named after Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel Crime and Punishment, the brand’s garments are partly produced by Russian prisoners in correctional institutions. Its debut collection goes by the name “Цел и Невредим,” which roughly translates as “Safe ‘n’ Sound” and features a range of hats, hoodies and loose-fit graphic tees, all embroidered with Russian inscriptions and symbols. Peep the lookbook above and shop the collection at the Crime x Punishment webstore.
