We find our inspiration in the dreamy, subconscious state of mind where the visuals represent our latent psychedelic energy. As consciousness expands, the mind becomes a vortex encompassing a psychological spiritual level. Here on, we’re awarded a glimpse into the future.
The label’s ubiquitous pop art meets the flower child aesthetic, culminating in a mental leitmotif of surreal mushroom spaceships. Our frame of mind is making its way back to the intoxicating times of the ‘70s, as we seek fellow members of our tribe of weird. The fluid journey is also a play on optical lines and illusions. To be able to set healthy mental boundaries; an abundance of clarity, leaving no room for any restraint to claw in. And as true-blue millennials who derive pride in the ‘90s kids moniker, we’ve let the gaming culture come to the fore.

We’re talking pantsuits with puffer jacket sleeves, and a solitary crystal bustier under a formal jacket. Evidently, we’re refusing romantic. And embracing a gender-agnostic, playful and provocative undercurrent.
