Graffiti artist/illustrator Cloakwork has teamed up with Malysian brand Against Lab for a special capsule dubbed “Against the System.” Consisting of a short-sleeve button up alongside two tees and a hat, the collection showcases a rebellious ethos and plenty of Cloakwork’s signature cartoon characters.
Offerings are centered around the aforementioned short-sleeve button up. Presented in white with contrasting black buttons, it features an all-over print that mixes everything from stylized visages to jagged “Obey the Law” text hits. Done up in black and white, tees stamp a headband-wearing strongman gripping a bubble-lettered “Against” motif on the chest, while the back features the same individual’s hand holding a magnifying glass over a “Cloak” hit. Finally, the five-panel hat is dressed in black with a bubble-lettered “Cloak” embellishment on the front in light blue. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the letter A has been swapped out for an anarchy symbol. A cartoon depiction of a spray paint can graces the left side to wrap up the look.
The Cloakwork x Against Lab “Against the System” capsule is available via Against Lab now. The button-up is priced at RM 249 MYR (approximately $59 USD), the tees at RM 149 MYR (approximately $35 USD) each and the hat at RM 129 MYR (approximately $30 USD).
