Tokyo street wear brand BAL has been running for more than 10 years, including the days when they used to be called Balance Wear Design. This coming Saturday, August 28th is a day to remember for BAL, and its fans as they will be opening their first flagship store in the Gohongi area of Tokyo. To commemorate the happy occasion, BAL have gotten together with two brands to produce special opening items.
One brand they have teamed up with is Stussy and the graphics they have chosen to tweak is none other than the classic Flower & Skull graphic from back in the day. Two versions are made in black or white t-shirt body and the skull graphic features some slicked-back hair, adding the BAL style to the graphic. Underneath it, there is a tag line that reads "BAL Original Renegades" in the famous Stussy handwriting fonts.
Another brand they have worked with is the PORTER brand, also out of Tokyo. There are several items on offer, 19L back pack, coin case and money clip/card case. Each are clad in khaki colored cordura nylon material and takes inspiration from military styles. The store should be a great spot that's packed with interesting selection of goods, so be sure to check it out next time you are out in Tokyo.
