The Tube Collection by RAW WAR is a series of tops made and released as the brand’s first manufactured and store-sold collection. The collection includes a series of crop tops and t-shirts all constructed in a ‘tube’ way, meaning no shoulder seams for any of the sleeves. A column-like silhouette was the result of this way of construction, giving it a unique vibe, whilst also incorporating a cultural influence by the Japanese Kimono’s construction: a culture who’s dress is highly inspirational for the brand. The tops came in both Black and Red, being the characteristic colours of RAW WAR. A stamp of branding is evident in both designs. The classic logo was printed in white: large on the back of the t-shirt and small around the neck of the crop top. The launch party took place at Cabinet Noir in June of 2017, and the products were sold at the store following this event. Furthermore stock were released online and at Colosoul’s Foxfeet Collective Store.
