Indonesian label Dominate Jakarta has released its Fall/Winter 2019 collection titled “We A’ Rockers.” Inspired by Theodoros Bafaloukos’ ‘78 Jamaican film, Rockers, Dominate’s latest collection embodies the spirit of Jamaican subculture with graphic T-shirts, mix-paneled jackets, branded hoodies and experimental shorts.

As “rockers” is used in the UK as slang for “reggae fan,” Dominate mixes reggae, military and ’90s outdoor style to reference Jamaican culture. Dominate was specifically influenced by a scene in Bafaloukos’ film when the “Rockers” take over a disco club and change the music from disco to dub. Portraying this “rebel attitude,” earth-toned mountaineer and flight pants are paired with utilitarian belts, while zip detailing, multiple pockets and accent pieces adhere to an “Experimental Garment” principle.

The brand’s staples, such as hoodies, crewnecks and long sleeves, sport a variety of Dominate branding, with camouflage and animal print patterns informing jackets and shorts. The collection’s color palette consists of olive, brown, black and gray with volt and neon orange detailing.

Shop the “We A’ Rockers” looks, starting at $34 USD, on Dominate’s website.

For more Fall/Winter 2019 releases, Places+Faces introduces its first knitwear pieces in three distinct colorways.

DOMINATE AW19 “WE A ROCKERS” . Calling out the irregular guerillas to DOMINATE’s latest drop called WE A ROCKERS! . For DOMINATE, Jamaican music like reggae-funk, has played a big part in the essence of its style. Longstory short, In Jamaica, dress was a natural of discriminating oneself in the neighborhood full of crowd and strivers. On the other context within the same place, tailoring and sewing is a top thing which widely recognized skill for men. Some activities like making belts, tam, and accessories were accepted and gained respect. Jamaican music, funk-reggae, has inspired a lot of youth in the UK, includes their lifestyle, perception, and perspective which later we know that it arrives from a small country, full of ghettos. For some people, reggae was a big thing, it’s about truth, passion, more than just a tone, their powerful messages with exuberant sound, and also their thrive in underground cult. It was just one of many ways in which they, a small country, broke down barriers – between genres, between scenes, between races. . Rebel attitude is a rocker, we, a Rockers! . #dominatebrigade #dominate #dominatejakarta #wearerockers
