“It seems that life is just a long and terrible sadness and so we must hunger and chase after happiness and the smallest hope of reprieve ’til the end of our days.” – Tears Of The Black Tiger
Opening the year with an homage to the Thai Cult Classic “Fa Thalai Chon (ฟ้าทะลายโจร)”, Pestle & Mortar Clothing imbues Spring/Summer 2018 with Tears of The Black Tiger. Drawing influence from the movie, the collection seeks to combine equal parts spaghetti western and fatalistic love story.
Consisting of 16 garments, 2 keychains and a stickerpack, the Tears of The Black Tiger collection proudly moves the focus back to South-East Asia from the previous ancient Greece of AW17.
From the “Lady in Red” tee and pullover hoodie that feature a custom flying mechanic logo and large rear print; To the Black Tiger Outlaws design that shows off material and texture differences with 3M reflective features to make your look pop, the SS18 collection is a personification of balance and harmony.
The Tears Of The Black Tiger Collection will be available from 7th April 2018 across 6 drops at the following:
