SNK ATK Design Lab X Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Volume 2

SNK ATK Design Lab has always been a favorite of ours in the local scene. Always pushing the form and function to tech wear to the public with much enthusiasm and quality products. This second collaboration with Mobile Legends: Bang Bang only proves that the brand is never afraid to explore the possibilities. Who says streetwear and gaming can’t coexist?

The Twelfth House X Lokallab X Parasadiwa Typhoon Fundraiser Shirt 

Twelfth House together with Lokallab and Parasadiwa, have come up with the ’Sama-Sama’ tee in order to raise funds for those affected by Super Typhoon Odette.
Priced at Php600, all proceeds go to the victims, just goes to show that it’s not just fluff and flossing for local streetwear, it’s a vehicle to help others which makes this release one of the best for 2021.

Medisina Clothing – “Street Foods Collection” 

Medisina is a brand that blurs the lines between streetwear and band merchandise. Known for their no holds barred messaging, their Street Foods collection dwells deep into Philippine street food culture in a very raw and graphic manner. Streetwear and street food? A marriage made in heaven… or hell!

REVERE X WSH 

When two brands combine their efforts for a well-meant quality release, the results can be pretty outstanding. That’s exactly the case for these two prominent brands from the Filipino streetwear scene: REVERE and WSH.
Both brands aim for a sharp art direction into cut-and-sewn garments. Combine that with their philosophical and surrealist insights and you have one of this year’s most interesting brand team-ups.

NOBODY X Rusty Machines Collection 

When brands and musicians collaborate for a release, it only proves that their mutual respect for their chosen artforms is there. NOBODY and their friends from pop-rock act Rusty Machines dropped this collection last April. This has been a tried and true formula that worked to their advantage. Rock and streetwear are rebel brothers and that won’t change.
Speaking of music, we recently had a conversation with Backspacer Records, do check it out.
