DRKN emerges. It’s Samhain or Halloween, the turning of the year and today is perfect to delve into the shadow world of DRKN. This new Swedish brand has their finger on the pulse of gamer culture, with concepts like Posthuman and the slogan: WE ARE GAMERS | WE ARE ONE | WE ARE DRKN. With fantasy and cultural references including Darth Maul and a light sprinkling of horror, the first collection promises to prep you for winter and get you Suicide Squad ready. It’s a win.
DRKN’s huge duvet coat suits the down-on-their-luck superhero, or the teeth chattering wait for the bus on Monday morning. The bondage straps, the transgender anonymity, the sheer functionality of it all is a huge plus. Just add attitude. At the DRKN show, the models had that in spades…. blood red face slick optional.
These clothes give the freedom to be a street ninja. Jump to it.
