When your fashion brand has a name like Defyant, we expect that bucking traditions and going against the norm will be the driving force behind each piece. With its new collection, the street style label is bringing a new vision to the classic wardrobe staples you want in your repertoire.
“Defyant is challenging the status quo of men’s streetwear with its latest ‘Ancient Porn’ and ‘Kung Fu’ capsule collections highlighted by playful reinterpretations of Ancient Greek oinochoe erotic paintings on T’s and originally rendered ‘camo’ prints of overlapping martial arts poses on mesh-lined, water resistant nylon windbreakers, anoraks and jackets,” according to a brand press release. “These pieces mark the exciting re-emergence of the brand into the market with a distinctively fresh array of T’s, button down shirts, hoodies, pants, jackets, and outerwear.”
Since its initial launch in 2006, Defyant has picked up an impressive roster of stylish celeb fans, like Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Jason Derulo, and more. As these creative artists all have a distinct vision of their styles, you can see how versatile the line’s pieces are.
Defyant creative director Joe Jihoon, shared that of course, he and his team have a goal of challenging conventional trends of casual menswear while still using the highest quality of fabrics and materials. But taking it a step further, they are on a mission to openly (literally) “defy” those conventions with their designs by creative a new aesthetic different than anything else out there.
In keeping with one emerging street style trend though, the brand has decided to only manufacture small lots of their garments, meaning they are extremely limited-edition and made for men who truly embody the ethos of the brand with their willingness to stand out with their fashions. Perfect for the fashion collector or style star who’s looking for some truly original pieces to kick up their wardrobes.
