Who are we?
PIRATE URBANWEAR is not just a brand, we are a movement. Uniting all of us, who want to achieve something during their time on this globe. Young people who are hungry to show themselves and their art to the world. Young people who want to be respected for whatever great things they are pursuing in life, and are never lacking ambition. Young people who have marvelous dreams, and wont rest ‘till they’ve achieved all of them. One at a time. We are all TeamPirate.
We are Leuven based and are focusing on street-fashion. Our label stands for high quality clothing with innovative looks and beautiful designs for the youth. Creativity is key and inspiration is the foundation of our success. We don’t want to follow the trends, we want to create them.
PIRATE URBANWEAR is about staying true to yourself, never forgetting where you came from. That’s why we also support the urban culture. We want to help young talented artists in achieving their marvelous dreams, by working together and pushing each other to higher heights. That’s why we are invested in all forms of street-art. From graffiti to spoken word and music.
The Somali Part
Ultimately we want to mix the Somalian pirate culture with the already existing urban culture. At first sight, these are two different worlds bound to collide and impossible to fuse, but don’t we all want the same thing?
We are in a way, all Somalian Pirates. We are all hungry to build something for ourselves, from scratch. We all have dreams of a lavish life, and to take care of our families. All of us have probably already done a bad thing for the right reasons. Because they ain’t left us no choice.
That’s why we want to tell our story through fashion and through Somalian piracy, because maybe we resemble more than you would think at first.
