BLAK Headwear Formerly known as Blak Apparel is the brainchild of two best mates, Andrew Buchan and Kane Lowen (B.L.A.K). We shared a passion for snowboarding and hunting out quality headwear and apparel to wear whilst in the mountains.
From the frustration of constantly finding poor quality or kooky designs, BLAK Headwear was born. We wanted to create high-quality headwear and apparel that would hold up to the harsh conditions of mountain life without compromising on design. While spending a few months living in a small room above a karaoke bar on the outskirts of Hakuba, snowboarding by day and drinking Japanese whiskey by night, our first range came to life.
BLAK Headwear now offers a range of quality headwear and apparel, designed with a strong streetwear influence which has been inspired by the big smoke of Melbourne City where we grew up.
We are that first breath of crisp mountain air.
We are the first patch of snow on the side of the road.
We are your favourite beanie.
We are those early morning missions for first chair.
We are those sunset beers sitting on top of your favourite mountain.
We are your perfect fitting hat.
We are the friends you only see a few times a year, but it's always like old times.
We are your favourite hoodie.
We are a bunch of misfits that found a home in the mountains.
