BME Melbourne is proud to be an independently owned and operated street wear label, focusing on producing premium quality, Limited Edition garments and accessories. Founded in late 2010 by JRF, BME is big on keeping things local, organic and steering away from the status quo.
As an illustrator, JRF still makes a point of drawing and designing many of the graphics himself, as well as collaborating with a bunch of highly respected local and nationally acclaimed artists, including Ben Brown, Rik Lee, Sarah McCloskey and Malicious, to name a few.
Melbourne’s creative subculture and it’s DIY mentality has always been something that’s inspired us, so we thought it’d be pretty rad to work on a little creative project of our own.
We’re proud to announce the BME x AFENDS Exclusive Edition collaboration tee, which officially drops on Sunday 16 June, at 8pm. With 20 tees available in store (Afends Concept Store - 201 Greville St, Prahran; available Monday), and 50 online through BME, they’re set to showcase the hands on approach and subversive mindset that both labels have come to embrace.
All 70 tees have been hand printed in Melbourne. JRF is responsible for the illustration. Cheers to all involved, with a special mention to our homie Ben from THSLFE for taking some killer snaps.
