NEW ERA HERITAGE SERIES: SPIKE LEE EDITION

Humid summer afternoons, corner pizzerias and fire hydrants for waterworks? Doesn’t really sound like an LA thing. However, the 90’s NY-inspired fashion era is making a full-fledge comeback — 1996 to be exact. New Era pays tribute to the key moment in their 90-year history by highlighting famed “Do The Right Thing” filmmaker and fashion innovator, Spike Lee. His 1996 World Series game Yankees cap is being released as an exclusive ‘SPIKE LEE JOINT’ with a five-piece collection to acknowledge the near century milestone, New Era and the man himself.
