WHO DECIDES WAR by MRDR BRVDO is a new collection of streetwear-indebted pieces to exclusively launch on SSENSE, designed by Virgil Abloh-collaborator Everard Best. First seen at Paris Fashion Week, the sub-label is centered around top-shelf craftsmanship and a sustainable ethos.
The eight-piece Fall/Winter 2019 collection brings an aesthetic comprised of DIY, utilitarian and tactical aesthetics through garments such as the harness strap trousers and the vest. Standout pieces include the white harness trousers sporting an all-over multicolored paint-splattered finish, the denim cargo pants complete with harness details and heavy-duty zippers, and the black flag hoodie.
WHO DECIDES WAR by MRDR BRVDO has a focus on sustainability and delivers a line of clothing that is purposely unfinished with raw hems and the use of raw, untreated Italian silks and cotton canvases, which are treated with coffee and tea dyes for a natural, washed finish.
The brand’s message is to celebrate the good in the world — something highlighted via its anti-666 logo – and it focuses on exploring the intricacies of conflict. Pieces such as the black flag hoodie, the matching T-shirt, and the messaging behind the use of harnesses and utilitarian designs further explore this. Take a look at all eight pieces from the WHO DECIDES WAR by MRDR BRVDO collection, and shop everything online now at SSENSE.
