We all know that streetwear fashion, besides its casual versatility , combines both comfort and style. Drawn from the hip hop, surfing, and skateboarding culture of the 1990s, the style is from, of, and seen on the streets. No matter what age you are, we're sure you've seen the baggy tees, hoodies, sweatpants, cargo pants, sneakers, and other urban-style accessories like bucket hats or totes, decked out in their distinctly street design, throughout the years. Now Gen Z has reclaimed the style as their own; not saying that only they can rock the look, because you totally could, too.
Whether you're already a fan and/or are looking for newer, bolder, and hey, simply more fun pieces to add to your everyday essentials and express yourself with, these local brands are worth the "add to cart" session.
Here are some shops you can find online.
Homeland Clothing Store
This local brand is putting the spotlight on the environment. Check out their nature-inspired designs: an adorable smiling earth, sun, and plant-carrying pots on their shirts and tote bags, decked out in eye-pleasing earth tones. For avid coffee lovers, we spotted a shirt with an adorable design that will let you wear what you love most.
Clouds Create Loud
Clouds is where you can get more underground streetwear. From oversized shirts, and hoodies to hats and swim shorts, most of the high-quality pieces they offer loudly (pun intended) and proudly scream their signature logo. Clouds Create Loud's diverse lineup with neat-looking visuals and prints will make you want to cop their products in various colorways and wear them every day of the week.
We Drool Co.
Never not hungry for minimalist streetwear pieces? We Drool Co. has got you. Art in many forms, as well as their signature logo and tagline, are seen through their shirts and hoodie designs. They also offer statement tote bags, activewear, and more. The brand, founded in 2014, is said to be built "out of cravings to create something from the ground."
With their oversized shirts and pullovers, this local brand might just be true to its name. From colorful, pastel-hued to neutral, darker tones as well as minimalist to loud designs, you're sure to find a piece of cozy clothing to add to your wardrobe. Perfect for the cold weather, because who needs an S.O to hug you through the night when you could have a cute sweater instead?
If you're looking for deliciously-designed statement tees, look over to Sumptuous PH. Streetwear is a lot about letting your clothes speak for you, so a statement tee is right up that alley. We spotted shirts with quotes you ought to live by, one of them being "Know Your Worth."
This local streetwear brand has the touch of Japan and its culture on its apparel. They also have basic and minimalist streetwear pieces in muted colors that can easily fit in your wardrobe staples, courtesy of their Skoop Basiks collection. They have shirts, shorts, hoodies, sweatpants, and hats in designs inspired by their travels, culture, and other things that they love. Skoop started with two people, one of whom is half-Japanese, and a crazy pipe dream in 2017. If you were born Filipino, but raised Japanese, then this one's for you.
If you're into streetwear fashion and are also an avid fan of the color purple, then you'd get a kick out of browsing through this independent brand. The minimalist and crisp designs on their shirts, jackets, and hoodies, totes, even home stuff like air fresheners or coasters, will easily fit into your aesthetic. We also spotted shirts reminiscent of favorite desserts such as Ube Halo-Halo and Strawberry Taho.
As a basketball-loving country, you can't miss this local brand whose designs are "deeply rooted in the sport and its subcultures." They have a range of products— from clothing, and headwear, to bags and home accessories such as rugs that fans of the sports won't resist getting.
Their apparel is one thing, but Syndrome Supply's custom furniture is another. Not only will you score shirts and accessories with minimalist designs to add to your wardrobe staples (one for each occasion), but you could also have fun decorating your own customized rugs.
This local streetwear brand hits the nostalgia note just right with their '80s to early 2000s pop culture-inspired, colorful prints and sketches on their shirts and other items. Think the old comic books, cartoons, toys, and television shows that made those decades what they were, in designs that also emit a fun vibe. Let's be real here: browsing through their catalog will be a wild ride.
