DC Shoe X SBTG Circus of Mutants

DC Shoe announces the official release event in Singapore for the Spring 2010 collaboration with renowned local designer Mark Ong aka SBTG. This inaugural collaboration boasts two shoes, a pair of board shorts, two t-shirts and two hats all designed by SBTG.

The design inspiration comes from the legendary skateboard crew called the “Circus of Mutants” who were active in Singapore in the 80s and 90s. In the collection’s design, a fly has been used by SBTG throughout all pieces to pay respect to “The Fly” who was one of the early pioneers in Singaporean skateboarding, and one of the few who could really claim to have brought the sport to his native country. His early nickname was branded to Lucas by members of the “Circus of Mutants” crew because of the skateboarders unrivalled ability to spend more time in the air than on the ground.

To celebrate the event, DC Shoe joins forces with Singaporean sneaker store GALLERY to launch the ‘Circus of Mutants’ Collection. The release event will be held at Rebel Boutique Club on Saturday, 13 March, where Mark Ong will have an autograph session, and there will be appearances by members of the original ‘Circus of Mutants’ crew. There will also be a live musical performance by Southern California’s Renee Renee.

In conjunction with the event, SBTG and sneaker store GALLERY are selecting 20 artists to participate in an art competition that celebrates the roles of collaboration in culture and the connection between skateboarding, street art and design progression.
