Rotterdam based clothing store asked me to build a collection for them for their in-house label by X-21. So We created the Rebels and Roaches by X-21 collection.
We wanted to convey a young, fresh and Rotterdam feeling in all streetwear staples.
The roach is a street symbol for Rotterdam because Rotterdam was almost totally demolished by bombs during WWII, but we are still here. Like roaches , Rotterdam can survive anything
The collection consists of two army jackets embellished with patches.
Two hoodies with a roach and R.O.F.F.A embroidery.
A t-shirt with roach embroidery and two pocket tees with an allover roach print.
