18. Recon
Recon is the stuff of legends. Literally. Arising from the foundational Project Dragon brand, Recon was a design collective synergized between graffiti household names Futura and Stash. Their brand acted as a canvas for their artistry, framed by flagship boutiques in San Francisco, New York, and Tokyo. Printable goods, cut-n-sew clothing, and even vinyl figures of their mascot Benny Barb. Nothing lasts forever and Recon is no more, but it leaves behind a legacy that anchors streetwear past, present, and future.
