Hypebeast Indonesia and Jameson Indonesia have collaborated on a project entitled “Connex,” spotlighting three music collectives home to Indonesian cities: ZODIAC from Jakarta, NORRM from Bandung and PNNY from Bali. Along with activations in each city, “Connex’s” apparel and accessories collection, “Widen the Circle,” pays homage to these respective collectives and their impact on local Indonesian subcultures.
ZODIAC is a lifestyle brand based in Jakarta, Indonesia, known for integrating youth culture and emerging lifestyle trends into contemporary streetwear and apparel for men and women. Based in Bandung, NORRM is a collective of broadcasters & publishers who aim to platform emerging creatives and spotlight evolving consumer patterns within media and pop culture. Lastly, PNNY is a Bali-based DJ collective known for its energetic live sets and diverse fan base. The collective recently launched House of PNNY, an accessories and apparel brand known for its exciting collaborations with local artists.
“Connex” hosted an activation in each respective city, the first of which occurred on February 17 in Jakarta, where ZODIAC showcased a live DJ set performed by Japanese artist Fran-Key. Following acts included Pleasure, a group consisting of members Adi, Tara, Bergas, and Walearic from Discouture. In Bandung, NORRM hosted an exclusive party held at OPIUCI on February 24.

There were special performances by Offset (Madflo & Awfi), Saf Collective (King T & Cesareno), Scrubs! (Archie & Gaeri), and Push/Pull (Kicks & Ngangah) — live broadcastings of which aired on NORRM’s website. Custom “Connex” vans stationed on-site displayed the collection for attendees.
