The name of Perth label and store Lo-Fi is no trick: the brand takes aesthetic inspiration from all things lo-fidelity, musical, and video, shot through a tropical, psychedelic lens. While sibling label and precursor Butter Goods remains staunchly loyal to its mission of representing skate culture on Australia’s west coast, Lo-Fi is surrounded by an aura without self-seriousness, free to develop into an expansive aesthetic. Untied to any one particular subculture, lo-fi sources inspiration from across the sub-cultural and pop-cultural spectrum, with a particular affinity for the convergence between the notion of lo-fidelity and discarded objects and images from the past, either due to technological obsolescence or perceived irrelevance.
The Lo-Fi Club Lo-Fi 6 Panel is a six-panel cap in a classic baseball two-tone colourway and embroidery that looks as if it were lifted from a ’90s company loyalty programme.
