The Capsule Collection: Equality @ SHUKYU Shop

OBSCR and City Boys FC will be launching their first ever capsule collection collaboration which will be exclusively made available at the SHUKYU Shop POP UP @ Vacant, Tokyo on the 25th-26th March 2017. The SHUKYU Shop will be a curation of creative brands from Japan (City Boys F.C.), South Korea (Nivelcrack) and not to forget Malaysia (OBSCR) in showcasing the different culture of football through lifestyle, art, and fashion.

This is the first collaboration between Kuala Lumpur-based label OBSCR with Tokyo’s City Boys F.C. in a capsule collection entitled “EQUALITY” that strongly emphasises on football beyond racial barriers, football promotes diversity and football is respect. With racial incidents that are being faced throughout the nation, the people behind the project want their voices to be heard and continue to fight against racism no matter how big or small they are. Football is a beautiful game that speaks a universal language around the world. It may be called football, or soccer but the spirit of the sport remains.

The collection comprises of 3 items, in their words:

  • Foot-ccer Hoodie: A split tone hoodie that embodies the name of the game in two different diction, which is Football and Soccer with a respect patch and ball embroidery on each side complementing with the OBSCR signature reflective strip on the back.

  • Respect Tee: A t-shirt with the word Respect printed boldly on the back and the graphic on the front was inspired by the 1910 painting by Henri Matisse entitled La Danse. We want to depict that no matter what race we are, we can all come together in unity to celebrate and play football.

  • El Tigre Tote Bag: A tote bag that commemorates the late Arthur Friedenreich, who was a Brazilian football player with the nickname ‘El Tigre’. During his football career, he has faced countless of barriers because of racism. We want to pay tribute to him, and serve as a reminder that football must be a beautiful game.

The collection will be available online from the 27th of March and it will also available at Crossover Concept Store, Mid Valley & Crossover Sunway Pyramid. In the meantime, stay tuned to any future updates by following the official page on Facebook and Instagram.
