A First Look at the brand-new Streetwear brand TAKARA WONG

Let's have a first look at the first collection of this brand-new brand, prior to the official launch on August 15.

TAKARA WONG | Newest Street Wear Brand in Bangkok

The philosophy of TAKARA WONG is inspired by a variety of impressions from an open-minded journey through different cultures from all over the world, put together as one story. The brand believes in the concept of “Trial and error", which implies to try over and over again until the final result gets as close a possible to the vision. It might not be perfect, but the brand strongly believes that perfection is not always the best, and at times, it is imperfection that makes things truly unique and interesting.

This first collection of TAKARA WONG is called “I Don’t Want To Survive, I Want To Live”, which is inspired by the Academy Award-winning movie "12 Years A Slave", which is the story about the free African-American man in 1840, who gets kidnapped and unrightfully enslaved, and has to overcome great obstacles and endure unspeakable injustice to finally regain his freedom.

The Mood & Tone is kept in plain coloring of Raven Black, Modd White and Burgundy Red. The clothes are partly made of traditional Thai fabric, with a straight-forward cut that stands for functional, yet powerful simplicity, inspired by the grimy workwear of an underdog, intentionally kept oversized, so it may be worn by both genders, taking a stand for equality in every way, be it race, gender, class, or other aspects..
