GOMO blazes into 2021 with the launch of their special streetwear collaboration with fashion-forward Filipino brand Don’t Blame the Kids Apparel Co. or DBTK. The capsule collection, available on January 30, was inspired by GOMO and DBTK’s shared message of inspiring the youth to pursue their passions and chase their dreams.
“The partnership between GOMO and DBTK is a perfect fit,” said Eric Tanbauco, head of GOMO. “Our brands cater to the tech-savvy digital youth who are passionate and purposeful. We share the vision of inspiring and empowering them to pursue their dreams and do what they love. The stylish collection created by DBTK encompasses this message with the perfect combination of art and fashion.
GOMO, the fully digital game-changing telco brand, launched in 2020 with the powerful message of unstopping everything holding you back from doing what you love. Following a series of unique and innovative virtual events, the brand is doubling down on their #WeDontStop movement in 2021 with a fresh new creative collaboration with a well-loved local streetwear label.
DBTK is a lifestyle and clothing brand that started as a passion project for brothers Vince and Emil Javier in 2012. Since its launch, the label has gained a large following with its unique designs and the positive and goal-oriented messages of encouragement embedded in every collection. Their message is simple: Don’t blame the kids for following their passions and being true to themselves. The brand wants to be a guidepost to constantly remind the kids to “dream big, start small,” and to enjoy the process of trial and error until the desired outcome is achieved.
Together GOMO and DBTK collaborated on a capsule t-shirt collection featuring stylish and youthful designs highlighting their shared message of youth empowerment.
The GOMO x DBTK collection Charge Forward was conceptualized with the powerful message that no challenge or setback is too big to overcome. The collection features three brand new tee-shirt designs, the “Script Skid Tee”, “Charge Tee”, and “Powerhouse Tee.” A sticker pack was also created featuring the unique designs of the collection.
“We love GOMO’s message of breaking free and not stopping no matter how big the challenges are,” said Vince Javier, co-founder and creative director, DBTK. “It fits perfectly with the DBTK mantra of pursuing your dreams and making them come true. This collection features bright and vibrant colors and strong design elements to highlight the importance of being passionate and boldly charging ahead in the pursuit of what we love.”
The exclusive GOMO x DBTK collection will be available on the dbtk.co website, the label’s flagship store in Project 8 Quezon City, and their satellite store at the Ronac Art Center in San Juan.
Charging Forward in 2021
“We’re very excited to be partnering with DBTK in the creation of this awesome collection,” Tanbauco added. “2020 was a challenging year but we found ways to continue doing what we love. In 2021, we want to go even further and we encourage everyone to charge forward and pursue your passions.”
