From the twisted mind of one of Japanese streetwear's foremost creative figures, Sk8thing, and Mo’ Wax alumnus, Toby Feltwell, comes Cav Empt, aka C.E., the latest in a long line of graphic-heavy brands coming out of the Land of the Rising Sun. With a pedigree that spans such heavy hitters as Bape, BBC and WTAPS, the enigmatic duo specialize in equally obscure and cryptic designs, reinforcing the famous Latin phrase “caveat emptor.” With substance behind the aesthetics—how consumerism touches all of our lives—Cav Empt is the rare brand with an actual message, even if it's not always overt. Let the buyer beware, indeed.
