“Established in 2009, Dark Seas purposefully has no mission statement. We simply exist to provide coastal explorers with a quality alternative to the sea of sameness”

Working directly with creative friends and artistic designers to produce unique and original graphics, Dark Seas Clothing seeks to create original clothing and streetwear like t-shirts and tank tops that embody the every day craftsman as well as the mischievous gentleman from one generation to the next.

The People VS.
The People Vs. dream was born from a desire to make high quality, vintaged-inspired, grunge fashion fundamentals for the people. With a collective passion for art, music, surf and the streets we occupy; our journey began with a small boutique space in the alleys of Bali. In those early years we spent countless hours trawling flea markets for silhouettes and experimenting with washing, dying and innovative printing techniques to establish what would be come our signature detailing and hand-feel. Embodying the laid back personality of our founders, we opened 2 concept stores in Bali & Bondi Beach blending contemporary streetwear with retro surf-punk styling and rock nostalgia. 3 years on come Sydney via New York City and in-between, our global family has grown with a strong retail presence in the Australian, Japanese, New Zealand and Asian markets but the original idealism remains the same. Giving a voice to the anti-establishment we creating unisex grunge garments for the moment. Wear It & Destroy It.
In the undisputed centre of the universe, New York City, the Zoo York brand was championed by a tight-knit crew of progressive minds who lived and breathed NYC’s raw creative energy. What started off as a simple line of decks and T-shirts steadily grew into a full-blown street wear collection. Today, Zoo York is a highly evolved, globally recognized brand with unbreakable East Coast attitude and dialect.
It all started in 1991 in L.A.’s Los Feliz district, where two RISD grads, Eli Bonerz and Adam Silverman, planted a brick-and-mortar hub at the crossroads of skateboarding, hip-hop, and rave culture.
The in-house X-Large brand was stocked alongside workwear’s usual suspects (Ben Davis, Carhartt, etc.), which so happened to be the popular style of the time for the Angeleno cool crowd. Of course Los Angeles culture is inextricable from Hollywood culture, and X-Large didn’t shy away from the young celebrity factor, with Mike D injecting seed money into the company, resulting in a cross-brand relationship with his rap group Beastie Boys with video production by an unknown director at the time named Spike Jonze.
X-Large’s influence is interwoven into the fabric of todays street fashion and culture and continues to cut it’s own path.

The Dogtown Cross as created by C.R. Stecyk III first came to public light on the pages of Skateboarder Magazine in 1976. It was soon applied to skateboards in the way of innovative art and paint designs by Wes Humpston and Jim Muir. In 1981 Mike Muir moved in with brother Jim in his Venice home. Shortly thereafter Mike formed Suicidal Tendencies and skate rock history was born. Fast forward 40’s years later and Dogtown is still pushing wood. Three years ago Jim Muir and Mike Muir brought the brands back together under the distribution of Dogtown X Suicidal coming full circle as a family business again like it was back in the 1980’s.
