Espionage 2014 Spring/Summer “Silent Majority For Peace” Lookbook
Korean mainstay Esionage presents its latest collection of military-inspired garb for Spring/Summer 2014. Dubbed “Silent Majority For Peace,” the new range takes its influences from the likes of the 1979 film Norma Rae and the music of Rage Against the Machine to tell the story of Thich Quang Duc, a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death in Saigon in 1963 to protest the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese – the famous image of which graces the cover of RATM’s self-titled 1992 debut. Stripes and cargos dominate the range alongside graphic tees, denim, work shirts, flight jackets, and even “GUERILLA RADIO”-emblazoned caps and crew necks. Select pieces from Espionage’s “Silent Majority For Peace” release are now available via WHEREHOUSE.
