5 Local Streetwear Brands That Are Instant Head-Turners

5 Local Streetwear Brands - Complex PH
James Francisco

These local streetwear brands deserve your love

Local streetwear brands in the Philippines are not new, but their popularity has immensely increased over the years. Often tied up with the local sneaker culture, the industry has become a platform/medium for people to show their style and personality.

Aside from fan-favorite Don’t Blame the Kids (DBTK), the streetwear scene has seen many new additions. Said brands have managed to say competitive against their international counterparts by positioning themselves as cheaper alternatives that maintain a high degree of quality in their wares. In turn, these make them more accessible and appreciated by the public.

Whether you are looking for simple graphic tees or looking to be more expressive with your wardrobe, here are some notable local streetwear brands that have become instant head-turners.

Charlotte Folk

Shops: Instagram & Website

If you are looking for a nice and clean, yet very stylish look, Charlotte Folk is for you. Established in 2018, Jan Charlotte Venzon had the vision to provide and support this generation with pieces that can help the younger generation to freely express themselves while still looking good.

Worn and recognized by many influencers, Charlotte Folk is a reputable name.

Nick Automatic

Shops: Shopee& Lazada

Founded in 2009 by artist Nicolo Nimolo from Cebu, Nick Automatic’s apparel design features colorful illustrations and graphics perfect for someone who likes very loud graphic tees. Their “Happy Kid” mascot is just too iconic.

Enimal

Shops: Physical Store (Calamba, Laguna), Shopee, & Lazada

If you are looking for minimal hoodies and shirts that are similar to Supreme’s bogo-style designs, Enimal has them in the bag. Inspired by the world of music, design, and sports, Enimal became a popular streetwear brand for its versatile pieces.

Episodes

Shops: Website

“Life is a series of episodes, and these are the stories we wear every day” is the motto of Episodes.

Founded by Maj Veloso, EPISODES is a lifestyle brand that has been producing statement pieces, as seen in their recent collaboration with WWF and their support for the LGBTQ community. With each release, the brand advocates for people to wear their stories. Their pieces are in limited and seasonal drops so the quality remains top-notch.

Clouds

Shops: Shopee

Clouds is one of those local streetwear brands that just hit differently with their style. It is a local streetwear brand that focuses on underground streetwear and creative style. The vibe is vintage, ideal for people looking for unique designs. Like the rest of the list, their products sell out fast, so better cop while they’re still available.

Trash article. Not really knowledgeable of the local mainstream streetwear brands. Just seems to be promoting these streetwear brands. Complex ph should pick better writers.

the article is good since the author listed brands that are pioneering in the country today and resonates mostly with the public – which makes them a head-turner. Referring it as a trash means there is something wrong with your reading comprehension. Alam mo yung trash? yung utak mo 💀💀

Was not aware that the creator of Nick Automatic is Nicolo Nimolo and not Nicolo Nimor. 🤣
Also, Episodes is included because Maj Veloso is a part of Complex PH. 🙃
