Kerby Jean-Raymond wants to celebrate and explore America’s unsung heroes through his five-year-old menswear label, Pyer Moss.
His latest collection—a capsule designed in collaboration with cognac house Hennessy—does just that. Inspired by Marshall “Major” Taylor, a cyclist who broke records as the first African American athlete to become a world champion, the five-piece lineup is simple and non-fussy, with breathable nylon fabrics, pops of mustard yellow and teal, and silhouettes reminiscent of vintage cycling uniforms. Ranging from $100 for a cap to $300 for joggers, a portion of the proceeds will go to the National Brotherhood of Cyclists. The collection will be available online starting in June.
