Raw, in-your-face, leftfield and a slight feel of early Belgian rave culture is what best describes new streetwear clothing line B a g g e r TheCollection by the eponymous Antwerp-based creative collective. What originally started as an arthouse club in an old customs building at the city’s port evolved into a gathering of lost and found creativos. Their first fashion-wise output photographed by Ulrike Biets dropped earlier this year and creates a different, yet appealing atmosphere. No glam and glittering, happy nightlife, photoshop galore, but an honest look and feel. Accessories like balaclavas and brass knuckles make it a wee bit more edgy.
The launch of the collection will be followed in the near future by the opening of the brand’s flagship store and the print release of Ulrike’s shoot.
