Perks and Mini are not keeping the positivity restricted to their upcoming ‘Positive Messages’ imprint. Entitled Nu/Age, the latest collection from the forward-thinking label asks us to view the events of the last year as a chance to imagine a different world beyond this one: the world that we want. Inspired by the label’s new home in Paris, the collection’s name also contains a “jeu de mots” (play on words), ‘nuage’ being the French word for cloud. For PAM, any new age that succeeds the current chaos must be one of expansiveness of vision with greater attentiveness to the natural world.
The Perks and Mini (P.A.M.) W’ A Friendly Gesture Cropped Hooded Sweatshirt sees the return of the label’s curiously named ‘Gesture’ flower motif, screen-printed on the front of this cropped hoodie with accompanying stylised P.A.M. lettering. With its asymmetrical appearance, different-sized petals, and eye-like centre, this emblem gestures towards outsider art without reverting to explicit reference. Here in the black wash colourway with a slightly faded and worn appearance, this cropped hoodie also features raglan sleeves; ribbed cuffs; and an adjustable hood with floral print ties.
