Taiwan label WISDOM has teamed with the illustrator MING to release a Lunar New Year exclusive collection that interprets the wisdom and insights learned after restarting from destruction.
Dubbed “DESTRUCTION”, the assemblage features the BADMING & HEAD BREAKER, a brain comic character that is tailor-made for WISDOM. Continuing the black motif adopted from last season’s collection, the lookbook is covered in dark shades, white, and charcoal, all on loose, baggy cuts.
Functionality is highly accentuated in the cotton T-shirts offered in long and short sleeves with sweat-wicking properties, as well as the cargo vests with numerous pockets. What’s worth mentioning are the lightweight pants made from environmentally friendly yarn and dyed by sustainable means. The pants take on a metallic finish for a futuristic aesthetic with naturally wrinkled fabric. A key accessory is the black fisherman beanie with the BADMING & HEAD BREAKER embroidery in white. This brings a subtle contrast while highlighting the theme of elevated streetwear.
