The brainchild of local entrepreneur Mark Lim, Ocdempire.com launched this morning, and is set to be the go-to portal for the style savvy with a penchant for experimental pieces. The listing of brands they have on board indicate a discerning selection of streetwear — a mish-mash of wadrobe staples, rejigged classics and edgy prints are fresh for the picking.
Making a timely entrance that's in sync with the FW15 season, the local online store carries collections from Korean brand Nonagon and Danish label Asger Juel Larsen's diffusion line, Madhouse — British labels Represent and Asger Juel Larsen's main line are slated to drop in August.
Hailing from Denmark, Asger Juel Larsen is known for their expressive statement-making attire. The brand's clientele include Rihanna and Steve Aoki, and is telling of its daring take on streetwear. Expect bold prints and unexpected twists in the form of embellishments that's not for the meek. Their diffusion line Madhouse takes on the same beat in casual silhouettes (sweatpants and pullovers) and punchy slogans.
Nonagon is a project by YG Entertainment, the company behind famed Korean stars G-Dragon and 2NE1. The ethos of the brand is deeply rooted in street culture and is a reflection of the vibe its entertainers purvey. Snapbacks, bomber jackets and sweatshirts are one with the label.
Represent favours a clean aesthetic that champions the details. Almost an uncanny blend of Rick Owens and Blk Dnm, plain garments with elongated hemlines and above-the-knee ribbing is what it brings to the table.
While Ocdempire.com's wares are largely for men, the Nonagon collection will feature pieces for women as well, and the unisex nature of the aesthetic and fit of the clothing are perfect for the fairer sex impartial to a relaxed silhouette.
