Protest have taken their main inspiration this year for their mens collection from one of this seaons biggest trend ‘Summertime Carninval’. Even Diors 2019 colleciton was showcased this year in a big-top; it’s a carefree jamboree of style for the senses. Protest have referenced the neon signs and circus style typefaces. Focused on the raw side of the carnival too with; tattoos, bright lights
The neons have inspired a group of bright designs upon dark bases with matching neon detailing. This series is called ‘Gradient neon’s’ and features prints of palm trees, geometric shapes and stripes. See their Collin t-shirt and their Bogo beach shorts.
In true festival style, they have a series of designs based on the classic retro Hawaiian shirt, a look that raises its head with ease each summer. Here they’ve combined leaf prints and florals with splashes of playfulness. The Bonzo beach short has a tropical leaf print with a classic hula dancer thrown into the mix. Find her if you can ?
Stylish festival-goers who flash their inked bodies at the likes of Coachella, inspired their Teshin beach shorts which feature, hand drawn eagle’s swooping over their oriental landscape. This look can be combined with their Damien or Belper tee for a look that would dovetail its way easily into any Miami pool party this summer.
