Darkphase 3.1 goes back to basics and back to 2BOP’s roots, where graphic prints dominate on staple winter pieces. The collection stirs up dreamy images of growing up in the hood, playing classic video games at the corner store and on bootleg nintendo consoles or “tv games” as they were known back in the day.
The lookbook invokes the juxtaposition of the neighbourhoods they grew up in and the video games and subcultural influences like skateboarding, skateboard magazines and bootleg skateboard VHS tapes that moulded us into who they are today.
