Since their inception, Mishka has been affixing their tees, crewnecks and hats with irreverent graphics inspired by skate culture, comic books, b-movies and pop culture phenomenon. Mishka has moved forward with their design aesthetic, incorporating these themes into more options including high-quality denim, outerwear and accessories.
