KORE X CRITIC

CRITIC 

STREETWEAR BRAND (SOUTH KOREA)

This June, we officially launched our collaboration designs with South Korean streetwear brand Critic. Based in Seoul, South Korea, Critic is known for their variety of text designs and take on old school urban wear. For our collaboration pieces, we fused Critic's style with KORE's theme of Korean culture and put together two sets: Critical KORE and Hollywood. Both designs (available in shirts and hats) are inspired by the Korean billiard culture during the 1980's. 

Both shirts are available in two colors while hats are available in single colors.

Critical KORE caps come in black and Hollywood jockey caps in maroon.

For those curious what the back of our Hollywood shirt translates, here it is:
