Design by Raf Reyes: Raf’s (VERYRARE’s founder – whose official/government name is Raphael btw) personal favorite. Channeling the power of Cabanel’s artwork he loves so much; thinking about the painting, it’s just so powerful. The quiet fury and resentment in the ‘fallen angel’’s eyes, the single tear for his loss, hands clasped together in an effort to control these intense emotions boiling inside while being scorned by the angelic cohort above… This V®️R®® statement piece draws parallels with our era and ourselves (as protagonists) – barely containing our Anger in the aftermath of critical times’ events; when we think everything’s doomed (hence the ‘Lost Paradise’ alternative title) when, in reality, it’s not. The metallic blue drip stands for the angels’ blood poured from uptop (heard it was blue-colored), the exlibris woven is for the personal connection between You and the Piece, nd the butterflies (at the back) are symbols for hope & new beginnings, an emblem of the brand.
Mixed media collage on garment. Digital to analog layering of 12+ visuals total (prints, embroidery, patches…). Short sleeve jersey shirt, hand-sewn with a crewneck profile, rib knit collar. Slightly cropped, relaxed|boxy fit, bio washed. Heavyweight 210gsm premium cotton fabric, made with a super combed cotton blend to achieve the softest handfeel producible. “Fallen Angel” framed rectangle print and texts (front) + artwork title (all around wrapping front&back) printed entirely with eco-friendly water-based inks fusing naturally with the fabrics. Double needle + tonal stitching (high stitch density for smooth finish) for durability. Trademarked bloodstain-shaped splatter and undereye angioma (metallic blue) embroideries. Metallic blue butterflies embroidered at the back on top of stylized VR®® logo. Left sleeve artwork description (two-color print). 19000 stitches all embroideries total (back & front). Woven external tags (matching blues). Interior satin label sewn so to leave no stitch marks at the back.
