Established in Los Angeles in 2014, Brain Dead, a creative collective and clothing brand founded by Kyle Ng and Ed Davis, interweaves influences from diverse subcultures such as post-punk, skateboarding, underground comics, and Californian hippie culture. The brand transcends mere aesthetics, utilizing fashion to probe deeper social and political themes. With bold graphics, psychedelic patterns, and vibrant hues, their clothing incites dialogue and introspection. Brain Dead critiques societal conformity, fostering individuality and critical thought. Collaborations with brands like Converse, The North Face, Carhartt, and artists such as Ty Segall and Daniel Johnston further broaden their creative scope. Beyond clothing, Brain Dead also engages in art exhibitions, music projects, and publishing, securing a dedicated following for their unique fashion perspective and their fusion of streetwear with subcultural nuances.
