When it comes to labeling on original designs some labels have it better than others with a selection from the cream of the crop in patterns, silhouettes, textures and prominent backdrops. It could be something about the name or the location, or maybe a particular language the core fanbase speaks that brings an internal class to play for something larger
On this edition its the tiger, an Animal that is revered for such a gracefull pattern and cunning nature to prey.
The tiger is the largest member of the felid (cat) family. They sport long, thick reddish coats with white bellies and white and black tails. Their heads, bodies, tails and limbs have narrow black, brown or gray stripes. There were once nine subspecies of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Caspian, Javan and Bali. Of these, the last three are extinct, one is extinct in the wild, and the rest are endangered.
These designers portray the tiger in such a way its nearly(or is)a staple to their brand, the logo, the entity, attitude and mystique
Real in your face and bold Kenzo being an international label holds true to its name with the high style dynamic and vintage logo look
A frontrunner for popularity bape made an American stape into a Japanese standard. Airforce ones, hoodies that would zip all the way up, tee shirts with a little monkey on them, all while putting the logo all over it
In the early 1900s, there were around 100,000 tigers throughout their range. Today, an estimated total of around 3,000-4,500 exist in the wild. Below is a breakdown of tiger numbers by subspecies.
Bengal tiger: Less than 2,000
Indochinese tiger: 750-1,300
Siberian tiger: Around 450
Sumatran tiger: 400-500
Malayan tiger: 600-800

Highly popular through the early 00’s though its not popular anymore this logo strayed very little from strong vivid prints such as the tiger animal logo and a ‘love kills’ tattoo banner. .it made flash tattoo art beautiful and the focus on print colour, fabric quality and jewels
The hawaii based label is way ahead out of a street style market with their own crew called ‘in4mants’ they make product that speaks to their nature almost exclusively and stays true to what Hawaii means and their crew does best, not such a bad idea when your coming out with the best of the best tiger camo button up’s and jackets
Tie: lrg(lifted research group)&hba(hood by air)
Lrg and hba are like a duo, they link in where things make them different, adapted by approach they are the same. It’s a necessary poetry that makes you larger than you are, causes you to learn, then understand how your actually about more thus interested in more. Both pieces represent the tiger phenomenally where it shows the brand noted things even finer than itself
Go make fashion!✌
