Our 2020 collection is a special one. It’s a collection celebrating 20 years of Psylo on the ‘Island of The Gods’ - Bali.
A collection that is an homage to this beautiful island, Psylo’s home. With its mountainous volcanoes, emerald hills, hidden waterfalls, iconic rice fields, beaches and coral reefs. Bali’s natural beauty is only part of what makes this island so inspiring. Local traditions of Art & Crafts, combined with super rich culture - are what gives this island it’s real charm. The enchanting temples and daily spiritual rituals on this mystical island have all been an ongoing source of inspiration for Psylo’s design team. Our anniversary collection is dedicated to it.
In Psylo’s casual-sport-punk style - you’re guaranteed to find that one outfit to wear, and always be ready for any adventure your day might bring. That outfit to make you look your best, while expressing your unique style. Whether you’ll be practicing yoga, chilling, meeting friends for drinks, Burningman, an investor meeting, all the way to your bedtime... Whether your first Psylo garment, or adding to your full-Psylo look - get ready to fall in-love with these new favourite looks;
Here for a casual-sporty-punk look in streetwear-style, Selina is wearing the new Cashew Pants, seen here in 2 different colours versions; the black-pink is paired with the Straps Rmx Top (left), while the off-white is paired with the Myanmar Hooded Single (right).
For this smart-casual look, Johnny is wearing the new Karma Tee paired with the Brush Shorts. Like most of our men's T-shirt, this one is made from sustainable Bamboo and organic cotton soft fabric. Keeps you cool, while staying environmentally-conscious.
Like all our collections, the new styles infuse tribal or ethnic influences, with bold and edgy cuts. Grungy yet elegant, each Psylo is the result of a deeply thought-of process of Alchemy; Sacred Symbolism, Ancient & Contemporary Art, Cultural History and the Essence of Humanity. In a similar way to previous Psylo lines, this new collection has a few themes running through it;
#1 The Sacred
The direct influence of the spirituality of the ‘Island of The Gods’ can be seen the most in these new Psylo styles;
From the Tangka skirt or dress - both featuring a printed artwork of the‘1000 Buddhas’ as texture, adding character to the fabric. This is a classic depiction of the ‘Miracle at Śrāvastī’. In Tibetan culture, it’s the story when the Buddha multiplied himself a thousand times, leaving his critics awestruck.
To a couple of styles being embellished with the God Vishnu; Vishnu Mini Skirt, Vishnu Hooded Tee. In Hinduism, Vishnu is the protector of the universe from being destroyed. He’s the one who keeps the universe going... This last print, the ‘Vishnu’, is a renewed Psylo collaboration with the talented Evgeny Bam, a Bali-based street artist. He calls his pictorial style a "Modern Native Art"; combining geometry and traditional art, spiced up with an illustration of spirituality.
For our ‘Island of the Gods’ collection, we asked Bam to portray Bali and its Gods. Together with the ‘Vishnu’ print, Bam created for Psylo a depiction of the ‘Island of the Gods’ – with its 3 volcanoes, sun and waves in a contemporary, semi-infantile expression. This artwork is embellishing the Bali Mini Dress.
#2 The Bold
For those looking for a bold look - these are for you. A Psylo 20th anniversary collection wouldn’t be complete without some big impact, head-turning new styles. These are casual-sport-punk wear, a classic Psylo mix of rough and elegant. From the signature Psylo asymmetrical cuts which can be found on the new Irony Bra Top, Side Hooded Jacket, Brush Mini Dress and U.D. Tee.
Meet Psylo’s new gender neutral clothing. These new styles, joining other recent ones, were created to fit you easily. Without pre-condition of gender, in comfortable baggy cuts and simple sizing - welcoming everyone to wear and enjoy. The new Revolution Oversized Top and Revolution Singlet, are embellished with a mixed symbolic artwork, celebrating 20 years of Psylo. Both are made from sustainable bamboo and organic cotton fabrics - soft and breathable. Perfect for freeing your body and mind.
While our new favourite - the Onomik Unisex Kimono is such a luxurious throw-on layer, we wouldn’t want to discriminate anyone from wearing it! This traditional Japanese-style kimono is made from two different kinds of natural linen fabric. While it's soft lining, made from woven rayon, is printed with the same ‘Revolution’ design. Come as you are. Make your own rules.
The full 20th anniversary collection is to be released over the next few months. With the first styles expected to be landing at our shops beginning of April 2020. To stay tuned with Psylo's new styles releases - subscribe to our newsletter to keep in the know.
