Evan-Robinson uses the rural feel of his home in southeast Idaho as inspiration for his work; the wildlife and and scenic setting make for common themes throughout his work.

“I first met Ryder years ago in NYC; he was an artist, and a great guy with a warm personality,” says Aaron Levine, senior vice president of design at Abercrombie & Fitch. “One day I was flicking through Instagram and saw some of his artwork, so I reached back out to him and asked if he’d be interested in working on a creative project together. It is a real privilege to be able to work with and support wonderful artists on projects that are mutually inspiring.”

Together, Evan-Robinson and Abercrombie worked to make his artwork come to life. The collection, which is available online now, consists of graphic tees and sweatshirts, printed hats, and leather accessories. Prices range from $28 to $78. The colors are highly reminiscent of nature, using neutrals as the base color, and adding pops of brightness throughout. Whether you’re a fan of the great outdoors or not, it certainly does make for a great source of inspiration—and style.
