Playground 1230 is a menswear brand created in 2018 after the designer graduated from university, often taking inspiration from military uniforms between the 40s and 80s. Each collection is based on the mental space of the designer as he uses his collections as a way of expressing his emotions.
The last two collections were titled ‘Suicidal Playground’ based on his early years during primary school & ‘No More 12hr Shift’ which was designed during lunch breaks .
Playground 1230 are currently working on the next collection ‘I Wish I Cried More Often’ exploring the effects that crying has on your body and mind. Aesthetically the collection borrows from military/ explorer uniforms, blues singers like Bobby Blue bland and Picasso Blue Period.
