Storyline

Design by Raf Reyes: my go-to piece (to be fair). Lets you wanna daydream all day erryday. Stemming from an expression I took over and worked from to build the VR®® artwear around it: ‘L’Empire du Chill’ ([The Empire of Chill]). A merry-go-lucky Majin Buu and Hercules/M. Satan just b the dynamic duo that no one could outsmoke and out-chill. Being wavey as a team and besties/buddies, all-over prints come wrapping the VERYRARE™ ‘Laidback’ statement piece. Subtle tonal embroideries in pastel palettes embellish the artwear, made to be worn-winning (in line with our manifesto), whether in museums, galleries or on the couch. A Raf-coined quote (at the back), the screenplay script for the scene represented at the front is printed on the sleeve, with trademark VR®® VERYRARE™ stripes/bands earned in [Super Saiyan] combat as well. Carpe diem fam. Seize that moment. Just enjoy yo ☻

☞  Returns & Exchanges:

  • As we hand-embroider your clothes with your own initials, we neither accept returns nor exchanges for the VR-iD items you'd have emblazoned. All sales final.
  • If you want to be left with the possibility for returns or exchanges, please leave the VR-iD field (for your initials) as blank, so that we don't customize your very own artwear artwork. However, we do not recommend this option as we found it of a much lesser value for our VERYRARE™ customers.
