Pop-up: Suave Citizen
— 28 Sep 2018, 16:36
Tell us about who you are and what you do?
Suave Citizen is ethical streetwear with a love for the t-shirt. The designs take inspiration from a load of references from 90s nostalgia and subculture to neon lights and animal print. With streetwear, there doesn't seem to be as much of a focus on producing clothing ethically as there should be. Everyone should receive a fair living wage and be able to work in a safe environment - it's a non-negotiable and Suave Citizen is guilt free.
Which song sums up the brand?
So many but for sure Youth by Ben Khan
What can we expect from your stay?
There will be a collection of new pieces at BOXPARK so get down, have a look, say hi, listen to some good music and nab something.
Which piece is your favourite?
The green leopard t-shirt has always had my heart, but there's a strong contender coming in the new drop.
What is the best reason to come to Shoreditch for a shopping spree?
It's the place to find independent brands so just have a wander and see what you find.
What's your top Shoreditch tip?
Get yourself lost and walk down the back streets and definitely get some lamachun at Tas Firin on Bethnal Green Road.
What does the future hold for your brand?
Expansion! More designs, more popups, more eyes on the clothes.
You can catch Suave Citizen's pop-up from Tuesday 2nd - Sunday 7th October in unit 26 of Boxpark Shoreditch!
