The label Brain Dead is led not by one single person, nor one idea, but rather a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world. With its graphic-led approach to a more disruptive design take, the brand takes cues from post-punk, underground comics and skateboarding to sartorially embody counter-culture as a whole. This vandalized take on a classic button down shirt replaces the typical buttons with a special half zip neck, while the graphic features text that encourages the unconscious mind to guide the conscious — seemingly appropriate for warm summer nights.
