“You are only a prisoner when you surrender.” Inspired by the psychology behind imprisonment, CLOTTEE’s latest collection for Spring/Summer 2018 is a study in anxiety, horror and helplessness. But we’re not just talking about literal imprisonment in jail - the prevailing themes of confinement and isolation are universal, emotions and states we’ve all felt. Reflecting this dire frame of mind, CLOTTEE has designed a range of apparel featuring stripes, oversized silhouettes, bold colors and striking graphics - all alluding to the feeling of restriction within the walls that surround us all.
However, it’s not all negative. “The mind is a prison of one’s potential which can be freed by their dreams”. Freedom can be achieved within one’s mind, a state that we’re all capable of experiencing. Remixing the Department of Corrections abbreviation, CLOTTEE looks up and renames its Department of Connections. By connecting, sharing and learning from the past - a more positive future is within arm’s reach.
Staple items include a range of stellar outerwear options and new graphic designs. From pants to accessories, the selection is demure but with a hint of brightness. Items will be available beginning January 10 with new styles added every few weeks on CLOT TMALL, CLOT Online, JUICE and JUICE STAND stores around the world.
