In a statement to Hypebeast earlier this week, Preston said—for him—this collection is rooted in the idea of “less is more,” particularly in light of the difficulties many have endured over the past year.
“It’s really celebrating this idea of less is more, given the circumstances that we are in,” Preston said. “I really found it as an opportunity to refocus and realign the direction of the collections.

Back in November, Preston was among the artists who contributed designs to the Our Lives in T-Shirts charity project based in Miami, Florida. Architect Emmett Moore directed the installation, which was set in the Miami Design District and saw all proceeds from sales of the designs being donated to a regional organization focused on supporting underserved neighborhoods in the area.
