Dear Shaded Viewers,
Benji WZW is a graduate from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Belgium, and launched his brand BENJI WZW earlier this year in 2014. BENJI WZW is a luxury streetwear brand inspired by fringe internet cultures, Benji WZW brings together street tribalism with a narrative sensitivity.
THE FILM: SS15 ROSES DROWNING IN A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL tells the story of self-destruction and smiling so much that nobody ever knows what's wrong. The collection is an alchemy of nostalgic iconography and deeply personal emotions, utilizing elements from childhood cartoons, 3D modeled/printed/hand sewn, with an innovative take on denim + embroidery detailing. Denim pieces have embroidered edges inspired by patchwork customization, creating clean, graphic lines with detailed texture.
