It’s not how big the store is, it’s what’s inside that matters
Super Sunday Store owners Kioue (pronounced Kayu) and Tha-B have been runningÂ The Super Sunday Store for almost 2 years, but their movement within the graffiti and t-shirt designs circlesÂ is closing in on the 4-year mark.Â Kioue and Tha-B are also active in the breakdancing scene as well as event management, so don’t be messin’ yo. Their store, located at the Bukit Bintang monorail station may be tiny but you can’t be mistaking that graffiti influence.
Why? Young local t-shirt designers are usually overlooked and hungry for space to display their items. That’s where The Super Sunday Store comes in. If before indie t-shirt designers only emerged at one-off art fests or events, now you can head down to The Super Sunday store to cop t-shirts by your fave local designers anytime.
Who? 30 over local designer t-shirts are displayed here, with designs from Street Signal, Bangkit, Pop Malaya, Defy, Black Sheep and so many more.
What else? CD albums from local talent like Malique, Hujan, Otherside Orchestra, Bunkface, Incarnation, They Will Kill Us All, Free Love, Secret Love Affair and hard to find local button badges and stickers are up for sale. The store also broadcastsÂ motion graphics viz from PerezOldSkool.
Location Bukit Bintang monorail station. It only made sense to be whereÂ Super Sunday’sÂ young clued up audience commutes and communes.
Customers Let’s just say the clientele that drops by knows their gear andÂ come from as far afield as Perak, Kelantan, Terengganu and Penang! Out-of-townersÂ know their stuff!
Future plans To openÂ 1 or 2 more stores depending on current demand. Plans are also afoot to collaborate with KL Monorail to organise an event featuring graffiti shows, exhibitions and independent buskers. One of the boys will also be heading to Italy to promote the Malaysian movement in street culture. Dope!
Parking Sungei Wang or better yet, hit up the KL Monorail to Bukit Bintang. It’s only RM2.10 from KL Sentral, and public transport is greener.
