Highsnobiety 2018 UTR20 Award.
_ PRMTVSM : dismantling from [ primitivism ], the letter “i” implies the infinity extension of an individual, signify the symbolic primitive substance of self off-cocoon process, intent to liberate itself from "civilize" and "modern" bound, each “i” stand for each stages of self-cognition.
At the very beginning that we constructed this concept branch of PRMTVSM, we thought that if it was just another clothing line limited to a certain style, it would surely lose its creativity because of the inherent rapid consumption and seasonal renewal patterns of commercial fashion, in order to pursue a meaningless rhythm which make a homogeneous cycle. Lacking freshness and slowly becomes tedious. As we liked challenges and renew ourselves constantly, since there's nothing more daunting than losing interest and pursuit in creativity. Jumping out of the physical concept of a clothing object, but instead, extends the inspiration we found into a broader cosmic axis.
Therefore, we boldly give you the Cosmos Character Style System, a distinctive new clothing concept proposed by the design team that the world had never seen before.
