Avant-garde meets street style

GUSTAV knitwear

From humble market stalls along the streets of the UK, Boxfresh jumpstarted a whole new taste for street style that has catapulted it to serious cult status among the hip and trendy. Since 1989, Boxfresh has been a bearer and bastion of British street wear that continues to evolve and mature with the rest of its followers.

Meanwhile, hailing from the other end of the style hemisphere is avant-garde guardian Passarella Death Squad. Started in London by Danny Broddle and Emilie Albisser eight years ago, the duo weaves and designs exquisite creations from a unique Japanese fabric that is produced exclusively for the brand. With garments made only in Japan or the UK, Passarella Death Squad can only be found in the most discerning stores in different parts of the world.

This Fall, these two stylistically diverse brands present a capsule collection that incorporates individual influences to come up with harmonious pieces of dark yet highly wearable fashion pieces that are flexible yet provocatively engaging.

Find key pieces such as the Baasima biker jacket which features slim-fit tailoring with a classic style made modern by an off-center contrast metal zip. It also has super-slim extended sleeves with collar tab fastening and open zip cuffs to give it a much-needed edge.

The Gustav knitwear in black features a super-fine merino knitted crew neck with contrast color paneling on the shoulders. The knitted jumper was made with a sharp overlap fabric detailing found at center back for a contemporary twist. Also, find exquisite details such as a rib hem running around the cuffs and neckline.

Graphic-print T-shirts play a significant role in the world of ultra-cool urban wear. Find the Laeguhvi tee in black, which features a surreal photographic cloud image printed on soft-handled bamboo fabric, and slim-rib neckline accent. Play it light with the Landgleigh tee in white, which makes use of a photographic image of lights printed on soft-handled bamboo fabric with slim-rib neckline detail. Meanwhile, the Laalit tee evokes mystery with its photographic shadows printed on soft-handled bamboo fabric with slim-rib neckline.

GRAPHIC-PRINT T-shirts are a staple in the world of ultra-cool urban wear.

The pieces in the collection play around with shades of black, white and gray, all of which are colors that exude strength, depth and simplicity.

The capsule collection by Boxfresh x Passarella Death Squad calls on all cultured and forward-thinking style enthusiasts. Two iconic brands present a one-of-a-kind collection for those who are perpetually in search of subdued and muted elegance.

Boxfresh x Pasarella Collection is exclusively available in Bratpack Greenbelt 5.

The Primer Group of Companies, Asia’s next retail giant, is the exclusive distributor of Boxfresh in the Philippines.
