A year after its debut collection, young LA-based streetwear label Ignored Prayers releases its first delivery in time for Halloween. The offering encompasses clothing, accessories and even a handful of zines.

Various imagery, ranging from the brands logo to a graphic collage, is printed on T-shirts and longsleeves, with several embroidered flat-brim caps boasting either the label’s “IP” logo or theater masks. This season’s collaborative tee boasts a print from friend of the brand, Julia Fox. To create her art, Fox withdraws blood with a syringe that she then uses as a tool for painting. Other items available from the line include a set of canvas patches, an enamel pin and a “XEROX”-emblazoned dad hat.

Take a look at the shot-in-film lookbook above, then head to Ignored Prayers’ webstore to view the entire drop.
