It wasÂ the pre-session to the big Green Room event held on August 1. Subang’s MNEP was one of the 3Â boutiques selected by Heineken Green RoomÂ to participate in the events’ art-based project.Â Showcasing music-inspired fashion, Green Room State of Mind brought theÂ 2 together again after previous projects by Bombshelter Studios, KinkyBlueFairy and Lapsap.
Hosted by rapper and MC Reefa, chill-out cafÃ©/fashion outlet MNEP was the 2nd boutique in the July- spanning State Of MindÂ campaign and represented with a series ofÂ 3 backlit digital prints. Called Music Evolution,Â it starts with Year Zero featuring an ape that like a Fatboy Slim vid quickly evolvesÂ through variousÂ develpmental stages: in this caseÂ captured through moments in fashion and music history, freeze framed in Beatles era, an 80s Michael Jackson and the iPod-nu rave imagery.
Boutique co-founder Maggie Pang said of the work, “It links together fashion and music in each era, and shows the circle of styles and music going in and out of fashion.” We couldn’t agree more. JUICE‘s Breakout DJ act, the fashionable SalahWrong were on hand to rock up the decks with a happy-core set. The location, out in Subang, meant that this was one event not crowded with the usual suspects, making it all that more interesting what with opportunities to make new friends. The new and improved Subang has stepped it up once again. Thanks Childson and Maggie for MNEP.
