AGAINST X POTMEETSPOP "CHAOS STANDARD"

Posted by AGAINST LAB on

Chaos Standard’ is a collaborative effort between Malaysian streetwear collective Against Lab and Indonesian denim label POT MEETS POP (PMPDENIM), which was released exclusively through Isetan Japan Store.   The collection fuses the AGAINST DNA into PMP’s quality denim tailoring. Borrowing heavily from Hong Kong gangster and martial arts films, the graphics feature neon lights, handcuffs and the obligatory dragon.   The centerpiece here is the denim zip up work jacket and pants: Unapologetically baggy and rugged, this ensemble again references gangster culture and the iconic prison jumpsuit.

MOTIVES - DELIVERY 2

Posted by AGAINST LAB on

The dictionary defines the word “motive” as something (such as a need or desire) that causes a person to act. AGAINST LAB. continues to question this human concept in the second delivery of “Motives”.   This exploration is seen throughout symbolism within the designs: a graphic that requires the viewer to connect the dots, multi-layered AGAINST logos and space exploration framed under ambition to name a few. From a design standpoint, the label has introduced fresh graphics accompanied by new iterations of popular illustrations from the first delivery. Most of the items from this release is printed on Champion t-shirts,...

The collection consists of graphic tees that embody a retro aesthetic and pays homage to the 80’s and manga culture.The graphics are printed on a set of newly introduced premium cotton tees. Other pieces include a hoodie, two strap...

THIS MIGHT BE PARADISE

Posted by AGAINST LAB on

“What is Paradise?” The voyage that initiated the curatorship of this compilation stemmed from the eternal quest to discover: Paradise and how to fulfill the never-ending hunger to satiate the penultimate sensation of satisfaction?   We have lain our path with four (“4”) tee-shirts, one (“1”) worker shirt, two (“2”) caps, two (“2”) two-way bags, a unique mug and a leather belt in collaboration with ‘Utile’ to initiate and tease our quest-heroes in their progress for the answer. These specially crafted Eden-inspired floral delicacies are small jigsaw pieces to inspire the imagination to a higher understanding. Special shoutouts to the...

AGAINST + STAKES 'X-RAY'

Posted by AGAINST LAB on

The X-RAY capsule collection marks the first time AGAINST & STAKES have collaborated together. What started out as an idea to reinterpret the IKEA transparent bag as wearable garments and accessories, the 'X-RAY' title became the obvious choice between both creative entities.   With the X-RAY theme driving the aesthetic of the collection, we have collaborated on 2 graphic t shirts and a hoodie. The latter is regarded as the more unconventional piece in the lineup, where a patch of transparent Polyethylene from the IKEA tote bag has been cut and sewn on.   The collection will be available on 18th Jan 2017,...
