Must-Cop Local Streetwear Pieces for Everyday Wear

Must-Cop Local Streetwear Pieces
James Francisco

Global street-fashion trends continue to set foot within the bustling Manila metropolis as the local industry complements the changing times. From vintage-esque pieces to those that breathe multifunctionality, there appears to be no “proper” way of styling, heavily valuing expression. 

For supporters of the worldwide “culture,” the West’s decades of influence remain undeniable. However, the Philippines isn’t far behind with its take on streetwear, proudly conceived by the local culture while exhibiting similar qualities and aesthetics. Whether it's a statement tee or a six-paneled cap, Complex Philippines lists must cop local streetwear pieces suitable for the day-to-day.

Witness Surreal Hypnosis’ (WSH) majestic island identity merges exceptionally with the Californian-established initiative, ISLA Project, evidenced through a collaboration that complements Baler, Aurora’s shore-surf lifestyle. Its “Chain” Tee features a two-sided silkscreen printed graphic on a 100% cotton material. The U.S.A. manufactured piece exhibits the unshackling of the “WSH” logo on the front with a bounty hunter paired with ISLA’s “Focus on the Tribe” mantra on the rear.
