thesis & manifesto
The world is a bit scary and unpredictable right now. Streetwear culture has always been about making a statement through your clothing. These two observations inspired Adan Ballou to create a new clothing collection called "FLAG", a collection of garments that act as poster boards to boldly display the ideas you stand up for.
The goal & purpose of this collection of work is to introduce some big ideas. Each garment graphically portrays a concept that is a tool for positive change. Wearing the design empowers you with the power of the idea. When that understanding is shared the strength of the concept grows within the community that is created.
