WE ARE FOREVER. 

 

We are ABSENSE. Not absent nor absence. Think about anything positive in your life and apply it to where you tend to go. The brand only wants to be that positivity enforcement in your life. Break free from all the negativity and or how society tries to control/dictate certain situations. It truly has been a journey for this brand. Not knowing how to pursue making the nice ass garments that we consider "artwork." Research, effort, & time play a key role into what we produce or push out so to speak. We always understood that everything takes time, but it's difficult putting that statement to use whenever something you're passionate about it involved. Mama once said, "Whatever you put out is what you make of it." Results shown from the effort we gave.

Creating a nice sample was the foundation that determined if we should or should not have made bulk order. Building hype from that sample also factors into if we should progress or not. We were and still are able to witness many brands, movements, "waves" etc. come and go throughout the area in which we reside. ABSENSE and our urban jackets are here for the long run, not a short period. We never strived to be anything like the next person. If anything, our goal was to better. If you are still confused, think of it this way raising a kid. Each year the child has to grow. Now apply that example to anything you have always had your heart set on; anything you have always wanted to do. Regardless of money lost because risks were taken in life. Really, it is all about sacrifices. From giving away free clothing to rushing the brand in certain aspects. Sometimes you have to ask yourself, "what's life without risks?" Simply put, if you don't take none you won't make none. Looking back at all of it (so far at least), it was a humbling experience. Our past mistakes have led us to now, 3 years later opening our WEBSTORE we can finally call our own. Something we often dreamed of launching. If you want to know more about ABSENSE and our urban clothing, give us a call or check out our about us page. Although we've come pretty far in comparison to where this dream of ours actually began, we're not done yet. In all honesty, we'll never be done. Absense is deeper than any individual article of clothing, even our urban jackets. It's a way of life... ABSENSE is forever.

 

Who/ What Influences the Brand - Absense

 

Well for starters, mom and dad. Their hard work and efforts rubbed off at an early age. Mom's consistency for being super mom and pop's consistency of being the perfect dad. Example, putting my butt through school then developing the fundamentals of core subjects. Something I personally would never take for granted. 
Secondly, the skateboard brand "Supreme." Skater or not everyone was and is to this day wearing these garments. From popular celebrities to child hood friends. It was as if, if you did not have a supreme garment in your closet that person was not considered "cool." Supreme was it was a must to grab. The hype was all centered around a box logo that sold out in a matter of minutes. James Jebbia & his team are genius. 
Thirdly, Pharrell. Whether it's through his production as The Neptunes or his creation that is BBC/Ice Cream, Skateboard P has had a very strong influence on me. He made it cool to be yourself. He made it cool to be proud of whatever it is you like even if it is outside of social norms. His influence on fashion was just as impactful as his music. Lastly, and most importantly, we influence ourselves. Many try to replicate but as for "Absense", we rather stay true and be ourselves.img_6983
