HLZBLZ “POWERS OF 10” COLLECTION
“The YOUTH made the generation & the youth will keep it”
Born of youth rebellion and subculture sentiments, HLZBLZ began it’s 10 year anniversary late last year and continued the celebration through the rest of 2016 with a set of collaboratives and projects that have been curated to reflect the brand’s roots and attitude that have set it apart since day one.
Fueled by youthful energy throughout the years, HLZBLZ has become notorious for cultivating new and exciting talent. In fact, in honor of the past decade the brand has collaborated on exclusive pieces with closely associated artists/brands such as Rare Panther, Trashers, Sin Amor, Rionism, and ChocoMoo who have all played a role in helping to shape the brand visually and creatively.
So it comes as no surprise the teams that have come to call the brand home, both new and old, have proven themselves to be more than capable of carrying the HLZ mantle and this retrospective features the people part of HLZBLZ movement from the beginning up until now; a show of raw talent that spans a generation because the youth made the generation and the youth will keep it.
WOVEN BLANKET WITH CUSTOM ARTWORK ONLY FOR THE 10 YR ANNIVERSARY. 70" X 53". HANDMADE IN THE USA.
A LONG TIME FRIEND OF THE BRAND, CHOCOMOO IS CONSIDERED TO BE APART OF THE HLZBLZ FAMILY AND HAS CONTINUED TO SUPPORT THE BRAND SINCE ITS INCEPTION.
Choco Moo is everywhere. From her high profile collaborations with Japanese fashion brands and musicians (including Kyary Pamyu Pamyu) to praise from top K-Pop groups to magazine appearances and recent gallery shows in Tokyo, Los Angeles, and New York, Choco Moo’s popularity has exploded. Success didn't come overnight for this hard-working Japanese artist; Choco Moo has been drawing since she was a small child -- in her own words, “Art is my life!”
