Brain Dead is a collaborative effort of creatives from all over the world headed by Los Angeles based designer Kyle Ng. The brand started out in 2014 by co-founders Kyle Ng and Ed Davis and has since transformed into one of the most sought after streetwear brands. The brand focuses on the model that Brain Dead is not one person, nor is it one idea. It sits in the space between people.
The brand draws inspiration from California’s underground subculture groups from post-punk, skateboarding, comics and the subculture spirit in general. The brand is easily recognizable by their signature disruptive graphic style on every piece and provides a variety of graphic t-shirts, hoodies, eyewear and accessories.
Known for their outlandish and thought-provoking graphics, the brand can be seen on many high profile celebrities including Kanye West multiple times. Notable collaborations include Vans Vault, Converse, Carhartt WIP and North Face.
