WHY YOU SHOULDN'T SUPPORT LOCAL STREETWEAR BRANDS

Monday, September 18, 2017


Over the past few years, international streetwear brands like Supreme, Off-White, Palace, and a whole lot more have emerged and taken over the fashion scene. Meaning, numerous international celebrities like Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, and quite a few more were seen wearing the said brands whenever they're out and about. With that, people started going crazy and had garments shipped internationally — some people would even line up at the crack of dawn outside the stores just to be able to purchase at least one garment.

However, the Philippine fashion scene isn't exactly synonymous and influential in the streetwear industry unlike the other countries, but that doesn't mean that our industry doesn't try. And to answer the question above of why you shouldn't support local streetwear brands? My answer would be none as I see no reason as to why you shouldn't support local streetwear brands. It's crazy to think that there are actually a lot of amazing local streetwear brands here in the Philippines working incredibly hard to put our country in the map and in the eyes of the streetwear community.




Recently, I was lucky enough to have the chance to collaborate with an up and coming local streetwear brand: Haute Stuff Originals. Haute Stuff Originals grabs their inspiration from the latest fashion trends and at what they see on the streets on a daily basis. The brand really is for lovers of fashion who are into experimenting and a wild adventure. Haute Stuff Originals produces pieces that represents the streets of Manila. And some say that local streetwear brands aren't comparable to international streetwear brands? Think again.
