Founded by Edward Li at 17, Victate has evolved from its humble birth in 2009 to a refreshing and successful streetwear brand today. Last week saw the release of the AW12 Bare Collection which suggests a bit more than thought.
Li describes Bare as “not only the aesthetics of the collection but also how we feel as a brand this season.” We see this in the simple, unadorned designs and colourways. Though there is great attention to detail in terms of the garment itself, with the use of quality materials.
Discovery is a lead graphic for this seasons collection and can be clearly seen in the fine detailed sleeve sweater. Drawn by hand, the forestry type growth almost cloaks the trademark roman numerals and Victate logo; an intricate eye catching feature with the wow factor that still manages to remain bare with the simple, contrasting black and white palette.
