There was a time when Religion and issues of Sacrilege and such became big in the art scene. It caused division and created a massive awakening. Then there's Lady Gaga and her video Judas and the countless fashion collections enliven in the biblical context plus those entertaining Vogue Editorials (naked wearing those crowns of thorns and the tapestry finished dresses). I was a big fan of the brand Imitation of Christ mainly because of the "name". Prior to those events, I have this plan of diy-ing all my white shirts with handpainted cross streaked with red textile paint. I almost had my shirts digi-printed with faces of Mary and the Holy Family only to realize it would be very expensive and temporary. It somehow actualized but then it dosed off of since my interests easily jump from one thing to another. I had those phase when i was so fond of gore mixed with biblical icons which if would be taken seriously would be deemed blasphemous by some sectors. Nevertheless, it's all about self- expression and auto-articulation.

So happy that my favorite brand Proudrace released this collection a couple of months ago with this image of him. I love that the brand has grown into a more high end label too yet it continues to embody that bold and youthful attitude . It's actually an inspiration among us, indie designers who are still striving to embark in this path. Jesus would be proud himself.

Went to a Christmas event and I loved the combined brands that I randomly picked. Not basically about the brand though but the aesthetic of each undoubtedly speaks so much about darkness , rock and the like. The skirt is from UUU shoop , a Hongkong brand . They have the most explosive and fun designs. They are experts in stripes and crazy patterns . No wonder why StyleBubble loves the brand so much.
