The 80s: Both the immovable object and the unstoppable force. With that, Mostly Heard Rarely Seen 8-Bit has created a nostalgic, timeless, yet fashion-forward brand that draws from the immortal icons from a pre-smartphone era to create a fashion line that’ll make an impact on any timeline.
Designed by Thomas ‘Thomakira’ Li, from Hong Kong and then Japan, his unique sense of style with origins from eastern-inspired street fashion throws up a mirror to the thriving street culture of Tokyo and Hong Kong. The brand name is not just a cute, little oxymoron like a wannabe Camden indie band; Mostly Heard Rarely Seen alludes to Tomakira’s anonymous lifestyle, letting his hard work and creativity take the spotlight.
What we love is that it’s such a playful brand that requires some level of street-smarts to fully understand the pantheon of pop-culture on show but the simple yet striking aesthetic of these 8-bit icons is sure to grab the attention of anyone anywhere in the world.
MHRS isn’t concerned with merely living in the past. Some of his newer designs poke fun at the more baffling stories to make today’s headlines. Whether it’s just a bit of fun or a satirical act of revolution, MHRS seamlessly manages to stay current by blurring the lines between the past and present making a bold statement whatever the intention.
