“You are only a prisoner when you surrender.” Inspired by the psychology behind imprisonment, CLOTTEE’s latest collection for Spring 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.
“The mind is a prison of one’s potential which can be freed by their dreams”
CLOT and NikeLab have collaborated to create the CLOT x NikeLab Air Force 1. The “CLOT Silk Air Force 1” is themed around traditional themes of luck, happiness and prosperity. As homage to China’s traditional roots, the shoe’s upper is comprised of a patterned CLOT Royale silk with a subtly contrasting white cream sole. However, the most interesting point of the “Silk Air Force 1” is the top CLOT Royale silk layer can be removed via burning, cutting or wear and tear to reveal a second laser engraved leather layer. The tear-away concept was put to use as CLOT’s own philosophy of going beyond the superficial. The official release of CLOT x Nikelab Air Force 1 is on the 2nd of February at selected JUICE stores in Asia.

Inspired by Creative Director of CLOT, Edison Chen's trip to the Arctic, '80 Degrees North' explores the coldest parts of the Earth's surface.
