Okar Style Suits was born in the island paradise surf hipster mecka of Canggu, Bali a few years ago. A place where people from all around the world get together and live happy days expressing themselves in tropical fashion.
I found that people embrace patterns and colours, but mostly wear similar tropical outfits like flip-flops, shorts, shirts, tees and other beach items. This as a stark contrast to my home city of Stockholm, Sweden, where fashion is strict in black & white, but where everybody is dressing the same sort of way with similar clothes of grayscale. As if the weather was not depressing enough in the winter.
So I got an idea that I wanted to create a new sort of fashion. One that didn´t really make sense when seen wandering around these places and one that followed nothing before. Something that would look slick and styling, but away from the norm. A trend walking down its own path. A finger to the lame and tame fashionistas that follow the people around them.
So I took the clothing item I felt least comfortable with “the suit”. Started thinking how suits are mostly presented in safe and plain colours, and how you don´t really see people wear suits in Bali. Spending my years in between Sydney, Bali and Stockholm, all of these things merged into an explosion… and BOOM!!! The Okar Style Suit idea and label was created.
It´s definitely not something everybody will dare or want to wear.
But those who do will come to know how bright it shines wherever it goes and the positive vibes it sends out and attracts. All suits are hand made on the island of gods (Bali) and tailor made for measurements to fit each person. And oh yeah… limited as fuck. Maximum 10 suits of each model will ever be made. Exclusively hand signed and numbered.
If you are lucky enough to already own one, you know just how desirable they are. You will also know just how many people have come up to you with compliments on your style.
Making suits and wearing them out and for many years.
