Through design and aesthetic, our mission is to provide people with reality, self confidence, and the understanding of what doesn’t kill you, can make you stronger.
Cold State of Mind LLC (C.S.M.) was founded in January, 2018 by a team of creatives and entrepreneurs who shared the common goal of starting a successful streetwear brand. With streetwear, music, entrepreneurship, and creativity as our passions, C.S.M. has 3 main themes and topics that define us and who we are.
We’ll start with our logo, the skull & halo, and what they mean to us. The skull represents death, while the halo reminds us of another opportunity at life, being reborn into an afterlife. This is a true representation of the beginning and end. Both extremes. Cold State of Mind represents the space in between. Life. Reality. The understanding that where there is good, there can be bad, and where there is bad, there can be good.
“Freedom or jail, clips inserted, a baby’s being born the same time a man is murdered. The beginning and end.”
We encourage everyone to be confident in their own skin and/or way of life. Be at peace with yourself and realize that you need no validation of your own self worth. Self confidence, self determination, self love.
Growing as a Person
C.S.M. represents the mantra of “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Pulling inspiration from hip hop artists like Kanye West, Nas, and Jay Z, C.S.M. recognizes that there will be hardships in life, but these hardships can mold and shape you into a stronger human being.
