Design by Raf Reyes: A girl is a gun like they said. ‘Queen of Hearts’ is an iconic remake with an iconic lady; playing on the gender rebalance and the unconventional equilibrium of power. THAT pistolera marked an entire generation of geeks and freaks. A 90s babe, for 90s babies. Within this statement piece, the cards deck gets to be reshuffled and your heart rate goes up. Vital stats to tha max. Game lingo like tic-tac-toe (red V, black R-embroidered) come to support the main group of visuals imprinted on the front of the tee (including 3M reflective print), and the back comes forward in multi-colored palettes’ embroideries, all speaking+relating to each other, embellishing the rework nd finessing the tribute from the creators to the created.

Design by Raf Reyes: A contemporary twist on the unequal balance of power and weaponry between modern-day era players/actors taking the street to make their voices heard. Old vs. new antagonism dear to RAF’s heart. The samurai swaggers and snarls to brilliant cathartic effect in classic, tightly paced, beautifully composed Japanese filmography generally. In this pre-launch VERYRARE™ piece, inspired by movies wherein jaded samurais help idealistic groups of young warriors weed out their clan’s evil influences. Again, the process turns the anteriorly commonly-accepted image of a proper samurai on its ear.
The back quote ‘danger always strikes when everything seems fine’ was chosen for its peculiar resonance in today’s times.
Design by Raf Reyes: my go-to piece (to be fair). Lets you wanna daydream all day erryday. Stemming from an expression I took over and worked from to build the VR®® artwear around it: ‘L’Empire du Chill’ ([The Empire of Chill]). A merry-go-lucky Majin Buu and Hercules/M. Satan just b the dynamic duo that no one could outsmoke and out-chill. Being wavey as a team and besties/buddies, all-over prints come wrapping the VERYRARE™ ‘Laidback’ statement piece. Subtle tonal embroideries in pastel palettes embellish the artwear, made to be worn-winning (in line with our manifesto), whether in museums, galleries or on the couch. A Raf-coined quote (at the back), the screenplay script for the scene represented at the front is printed on the sleeve, with trademark VR®® VERYRARE™ stripes/bands earned in [Super Saiyan] combat as well. Carpe diem fam. Seize that moment. Just enjoy yo ☻

“Do not cringe and make yourself small if you are called the black sheep, the maverick, the lone wolf. Those with slow seeing say that a nonconformist is a blight on society. But it has been proven over the centuries, that being different means standing at the edge, that one is practically guaranteed to make an original contribution, a useful and stunning contribution to her culture.”

Design by Raf Reyes: Raf (VERYRARE’s founder – whose official/government name is Raphael btw) personal favorite. channeling the power of Cabanel’s artwork he loves so much; thinking about the painting, it’s just so powerful. the quiet fury and resentment in the ‘fallen angel’’s eyes, the single tear for his loss, hands clasped together in an effort to control these intense emotions boiling inside while being scorned by the angelic cohort above.. this VR statement piece draws parallels with our era and ourselves (as protagonists) – barely containing our Anger in the aftermath of critical times’ events; when we think everything’s doomed (hence the ‘Lost Paradise’ alternative title) when, in reality, it’s not. the metallic blue drip stands for the angels’ blood poured from uptop (heard it was blue-colored), the exlibris woven is for the personal connection between You and the Piece, nd the butterflies (at the back) are symbols for hope & new beginnings, an emblem of the brand.
Each item embroidered with the buyer’s own initials.

Design by Raf Reyes: Self-explanatory. Honestly. The Trav tee a.k.a Jacques Webster the second a.k.a the cookup gawd, a.k.a the lab goat, coming to take us in his rager paradise. Half-faded and distressed visuals come kickin’ like La Flame only can, seemingly out-of-the-frame, together but separated. Toys, texts and attraction parks themed imprints + embroideries represent his genius mind and wildest thoughts. 3M reflective VR®® VERYRARE™ logos come legitimizing the whole craft even more as all layers come responding to each other. Ladies and gents, the Trav tee packs a punch as sleeves pay hommage to your local (cookie) dealers and ubers. [it’s LIT!! straight up] One way in, no ways out: (stuff being done) the VERYRARE™ VR®® way. Yeah
Design By Raf Reyes: the last supper. the last zoom. pretty self explanatory. when did it all begin? and when will this all end? who can we count on when hard times occur? the tee raises all those questions and gets them out right up in our faces, for good. religious glasswork + fresco vibes. “earn your stripes on the field while you can nd keep prayin'” they said.. at VERYRARE™ V®️R®® it’s all about friends & family, so come partake, 2020 we eattt 🍽️
The outstanding collaboration with the world-class goalkeeper Jan Oblak leads to environmental protection and social responsibility. Jan launched his sustainable octopus T-shirts, representing his long and fast hands as a super power.
Design by Raf: very rare rabbits sickened by some situations. ‘myxoma’ like the dis-ease of the times, and ‘dozed’ for some almost/near-lethal dose ingested. body fluids oozing out of the fineball pen drawing draws inspiration from the akira anime/1988 movie (notably from the trippy scene @the hospital). ‘seeing double’ as a result (doubled woven label) and hypersensitivity to light -> reflective flocking -may occur. this statement piece is for the everyday & the party days (nd daze). post-covidism post-pandemic thinking. can’t b a faint of heart in the 21st-century anymore..!
Design by Raf Reyes: Stemming from anime imagery, and the use of nuns as both receptors and receivers in pop culture. This piece strives to attain and inspire the many with the VERYRARE™ V®R®® drip, and a clear message: ’don’t fuck with us, we’re unfuckwittable’. Neoteny (def.) is the retention by adults in a species of traits previously seen only in juveniles; staying young all the times basically (like anime/trading cards games’ characters). We create our Eden here on Earth: the VRare family’s always prepared, as sharp as ever and ready 2 rumble (if attacked). Aiming skills on a 100 hundred. In a nutshell, the ’Neotenic Nuns With Guns’ statement piece will helpU carve ur statement out in the street for sure.

Design by Raf Reyes: It is explained in Lewis Carroll’s book that the spades (human soldiers cards) are gardeners, clubs are soldiers, diamonds are courtiers, and hearts are members of the royal family. I always loved gardening, watering your stuff out, whether they b investments, money trees [the perfect place for shade], or real trees/vegetation (naturae suprema – taking care of mother Gaia you dig?!). A beautifully laid out visual composition/collage by Raf comes announcing his own version of the Alice in Wonderland story for the 21st century, and subtle doubled-duplicated tonal prints and embroideries finish finessin’ the piece, and the master file at the back re-state in the VR®® Raf way how Lewis Caroll himself would have seen his work lent for aesthetically pleasing ends.

Design by Raf Reyes: Raf (VERYRARE’s founder) used to play street fighter and tekken a lotttt. still does. being both a massive 1v1 fighting games’ aficionado nd a cardplayer + ‘The Matrix’ movie lover, the ‘Valet De Coeur’ (jack of hearts) statement piece is Raf’s way of honoring the two, paying hommage to what shaped a whole childhood, as Ken finished off his V-sign victorious signature move -> VR livin’, no less. the sleeve is cyrillic for ‘VICTORY’ and the back is a Matrix poster-like composition with the V®️R®® twist/branded lettering.
