For the better part of 15 years now, CLOT has ushered in a breadth of streetwear considerations to the Hong Kong area, while simultaneously inflecting closet classics with an air of asiatic flair. Founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon have long been considered pioneers of East-meets-West sensitivities and are constantly fleshing out ways to expand upon that specific narrative. The brand has since linked up with RHUDE on a co-branded capsule that tunefully combines stylistic elements from both imprints.
“Double Happiness” is a subcultural melting pot of ideologies and design tenets, with both brands keeping true to its creative philosophies. The theme itself draws influence from the Chinese ligature character “囍,” alluding to the foundation of well-living, and is seen juxtaposed against animated dragon caricatures. Elsewhere, the cross-bearing crewneck and the color-blocked track jacket, both of which highlight each of the brand’s respective regions—Malibu and Hong Kong—do well to stand apart creatively from the rest.
The collaborative capsule will make its debut later this week on May 29. Look for the featured wares on JUICE’s official web store.
