As Above, So Below: Pestle & Mortar Fall / Winter 2018 Collection


Let’s take a quick tour what went down as Malaysian streetwear brand, Pestle & Mortar Clothing revealed their latest Fall / Winter 2018 Collection on the train and continued with a post event showcase at Lot 10, Bukit Bintang. As a departure from the status quo, Pestle & Mortar Clothing explores the space where dark meets light with their latest collection titled “As Above, So Below”.

In this 38-piece collection, PMC explores the juxtaposition of east & west, light & dark, effortlessly blending traditional elements with neo-futuristic sensibilities. Instead of going the expected path, PMC went the opposite way, looking upon the Bosozoku & Delinquent aesthetic for their key pieces. The combination of dark, underworld themes with the bright neon lights, is the contrast that the collection is centered upon.

“We cling to memories as if they define us, but... they really don't. What we do is what defines us.” 

Keeping true to Pestle & Mortar Clothing’s ethos of always adding that bit of local flair, there are elements of the collection which are unmistakably Malaysian. From the Japanese style woodblock carving inspired “East Coast Swing” Tee which features Mount Kinabalu instead of the usual Fuji-San to the choice of Chinese instead of Japanese Kanji in all of our key pieces and “boss is so cool” tee, we’ve even managed to fit a “kapcai” scooter in our collection! The snake motif in our TayTay bomber even has a custom Nyonya print underbelly as “scales” to smoothly blend local style with a contrasting design aesthetic.

“It’s a shame she won’t live, then again who does?”
Specially for the Fall/Winter 2018 collection, local clothing label DY/DX. and PMC have come together to fuse the understated Japanese utilitarian design styling of the black Moonlight Haori with the rebellious, delinquent nature of As Above, So Below.

Comprising of a lightweight construction with 6 functional pockets as well as the collection’s signature Bosozoku Inspired graphic embroidered in gold on the back and chest, the juxtaposition of the design elements come together in harmony resulting in the extremely limited run “Black Emperor Haori”.
