While typically a mild-mannered brand, Bal breaks out of its shell with the “F/O” collection for Spring/Summer 2014. The brand has introduced a set of provocatively-printed sneakers alongside matching tissue boxes (presumably for subsequent hurt feelings), laptop cases, handheld fans, coasters and lighters – each featuring everyone’s favorite people repellent. Offered in both red and black colorways, there’s a kind of charming irreverence to the pieces (especially the hand fan) that set them apart from your run-of-the-mill offensive T-shirt. Pick up the goods from Bal’s “F/O” collection from retailers like LAB Taipei now.
