Neo Cyber Punk

OK so I'm doing another post in the same day. I can't help it; this blog is like crack! I just have to make a post about this uber cool post-cyberpunk gear.











All this stuff is from a company based in Bali, and sells out of Japan. The stitching and details are, needless to say, intricate and mindblowing.

Their stuff can be found in Japan and certain select 'hyperboutiques'

Loveless
3-17-11 Minami Aoyama
Minato-ku, Tokyo
Japan

or

Colette
213, rue Saint-Honore
75001, Paris
France

I came across this stuff through a blog belonging to my friend and old coworker Jay (better known as Panda) and one of the most creative, loving and free-spirited people I've been fortunate enough to meet.

Here's a pic of Jay and his girlfriend/design partner:



I love Jay because he is so passionate and excited about artistic things, and every facet of his life.. his desk at work, his clothes, his friends.. the glass pipes he and his friends design.. reek of creativity. He is starting a new clothing company, and the above is some of his inspiration. He sums up the above fashion very well:


fucking "cyber" fashion can lick my well-dressed nuts. i'm officially alllllll about this new breedblend of hypertalented mofos that know that fashion isn't just about sticking kitty ears on a hoodie, or adding plastic PVC piping to a dress and calling it "cyber"...goddammit kids, get a grip ... THIS shit, this next level shit is what we're gonna be wearing in the future. This is the shit that Ridley Scott envisioned people would be wearing when he put Blade Runner on the screen..."


His reason for creating his own line lies on the motto that 'everything out there is crap unless you make it yourself.' This is exactly the reason I'd want to design fashion, or collect fashion around the globe to sell in Vancouver. I get very frustrated buying clothes in Vancouver: the reasonably priced stuff every girl and her chihuahua are wearing. And the stuff that costs a pacemaker and a kidney? It's only borderline creative.. some sweatshirt arms sewn onto a jean jacket, or a few extra ruffles of lace. Perhaps a hole cut out in the front of a t-shirt, with some silk peekaboo-ing under some the ripped strips of t-shirt fabric. It's DIY stuff, with the price jacked up $50 because it's 'unique.' The stuff here in Korea is better.. cheap, yet more diverse. To even bring some creative clothing from Asia back to share with Vancouver, and to keep it at low prices, would be one step in the right direction.

  • Holy Shit. That stuff is absolutely amazing. I've never, EVER seen detailing like that before. Are these all just show pieces, or is this stuff for sale? Are those all the pictures you've got? Is there a website? Do they do anything for men?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I'm totally blown away by this.

  • I'm sorry, I don't know the name. Neither does Jay, who took the pics from a magazine. The stuff IS for sale at the boutiques mentioned. I heard it's very expensive, and rightly so with all that detail!
