Manila-based international fashion label PROUD RACE looks back to the 1990's for edgy, youthful, neo-grungy designs with the launch of their new collection for A/W 2011 called "HEARTCORE".
Being fans of rock and roll, it was inevitable that the label is paying homage to their favorite rock legends. From Axl Rose to Kurt Cobain to Sid Vicious, as well as the women in these rockstars' lives, PROUD RACE was inspired to create pieces that emulate their iconic status and translate their cool vibe on to the label's distinct clothing aesthetic. With color pallettes composed of nudes and grays, this solid, strong and contemporary collection is bound to be unique on its own.
PROUD RACE has been creating minimal pieces and reinterpreting traditional garments into their own artistic style. The label’s been focused in making gender-neutral clothes with their trademark raw finish. It’s androgynous without being contrived, coherent and definitely wearable.
