Note: Stakes Shop's pop-up store is now closed.
If you’re dropping by Raksasa Studio for their silkscreen printing classes, don’t forget to check out the front section of the studio – you’ll know what we’re talking about, the huge white lotus sculpture growing out from an old briefcase should do the trick. From now until July, that section houses Stakes Shop, a local streetwear brand with skate aesthetics.
It’s not mentioned anywhere but there seems to be a recurring theme revolving around sheeps in some of their products. However, we’re told that the lotus, not the sheep, is their official mascot for the brand. Stakes has been in the local streetwear scene for about three years but has only started coming out with more exciting things within the past year. Besides t-shirts, Stakes also has caps, notebooks, zines and products by other brands such as Against Lab and Almost Quaint. Since they’re sharing space with Raksasa, we expect a collaboration between the two in the future.
Making full use of their pop-up venue, Stakes will also host monthly gigs dubbed the Lotus Club. So from now until July, you can chill with the Stakes crew and enjoy live music performances. The upcoming one on February 27 will feature Juko from Jaggfuzzbeats and Tobu from Youth Portal.
