LA-Based label Homme Boy introduces its first capsule collection inspired by Nirvana’s debut album.
Last year L.A. based fashion brand HOMME BOY burst onto the scene with its debut collection “Nevermind” inspired by rock’s grimiest and grungiest rebels, Nirvana. For 2015, designer and founder Kyle J Pak continues to explore the Nirvana theme with a special capsule collection that acts as sequel to his first line.
The mood and colour scheme for “Blew” (also the first track of Nirvana’s first CD “Bleach”) plays with the idea of melancholy and destruction with a palette of deep raw and bright cast indigos that are battered and bruised with frayed and unfinished hems and blow outs at the knee. A tonal blue jacquard camo jacket is a standout pieces as is the “Blew” logo print (a play on Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” logo from 1960) that features heavily throughout. As well as the denim pieces, the line also features a range of four new graphic tees, a set of cut and sewn Nevermind pieces as well as accessories.
Pak debuted “Blew” at the 2015 Copenhagen International Fashion Fair, where he participated in the “Creative Process” panel with the likes of Stampd LA founder Chris Stamp and Off-White’s Virgil Abloh.
