In a new lookbook titled “Race Riot,” Thailand-based TAKARA WONG explores violence and riots with the unveiling of their new Spring/Summer 2019 men’s and women’s collection.

Throughout the collection, designer Thakorn Wannawong displays a number of seasonal offerings inspired by the onslaught of protests happening in Venezuela’s capital of Caracas. Utilizing a variety of imagery and cuts, Wannawong projects a unique mixture of counter-culture vibes that channel ideas of protesting the status-quo and the potentially necessary chaos that comes along with it.

Standout pieces from the collection include various all-over print tops and bottoms, which feature photographers Ronaldo Schemidt and Juan Berreto’s winning images from the 2018 World Press Photo contest that depict Venezuelan protestors on fire. Along with the unique prints include a selection of over-sized blazers and punk-infused leather and denim patchwork pieces. The collection also employs unique collaborative accessories that have been produced alongside Bangkok-based jewelry brand Missile and New York-based J Zhong Eyewear.

Check out the gallery above, and be on the lookout for the SS19 collection drop via TAKAR WONG’s web store in the near future.
