Collaboration is a crucial part of Brain Dead's DNA. Founders Kyle Ng and Ed Davis work across categories with brands like The North Face but also L.A. vegan food chain Burgerlords to create experiences and tell stories. The practice stems from Ng's background in film school and as a director.

"If it's The North Face," he told GP in 2021, "I think about its rich heritage, I think about climbing, what's missing in climbing, I think about interesting stories that we take, and I think about the actors—the characters—that could be in it... When you make a movie, you have to think about

But this isn't the beginning of their story. Fans of either Brain Dead or Dickies might recall 2021's Brain Dead Fabrications, a hardware store-like concept shop for Dickies and Brain Dead merch. This collection borrows the same iconography, as well as the name, but deviates from plain old graphic tees and sweatshirts. Instead, you'll find bleached and paint-splattered jackets and pants, hats of a similar design, lots of colorful matching sets, and ringer shirts with DIY- (and alien-) inspired art.

"Brain Dead is a community of creatives and Dickies is a brand that celebrates and embraces the community of makers and those shaping their own path," Sarah Crockett, Dickies' global chief marketing officer, says. "This collection represents our mutual spirit and respect for creativity and community and those who prioritize 'us' over 'me.'"

For the duo's second collab, they focused on creativity in all its forms.

Long, ropey braids continued to be a staple — in some cases extending so far that they hit the ground — while artful, mixed-media beauty moments were also big.

Before writing Hamilton or sharing the music of Encanto with the world, Lin-Manuel Miranda was talking more about bagels than ... Bruno."In my lean, single years, the only thing I was good at were pizza bagels, Miranda tells Yahoo Life. "I'm talking four cheeses, barbecue sauce mixed with the tomato sauce and H&H Bagels — if I could splurge for them."But Miranda flew too close to the sun while dating his now wife, Vanessa Nadal. He tried to create a special pizza bagel for her, and an epic kitchen fail ensued. "Judge me not too harshly because I was in my 20s," says Miranda, "I saw one of her bars of dark chocolate and I decided to melt that in with the tomato sauce and make a dark-chocolate-cheese pizza bagel.""I presented it to my wife with pride," he continues, "and she said to me, 'This tastes horrible, and you ruined my chocolate bar — like, this is a double crime.' We talk about the dark-chocolate pizza bagel."Now that Miranda and Nadal have two kids, the 42-year-old filmmaker says he has shifted to simpler tasks in the kitchen. "I'm a parent, so it's really fried eggs and chicken tenders, all day, every day."
