Yeah baby! It is summertime!
Watermelons, short sleeves, picknicks, totes and crop tops! U just can’t go wrong (t)here!
Now that you know (= read in previous posts) how Provo-King got started, I want to share some of my favorite designs with you!
Coming in swingin’ . This week I wanted to showcase some one my favo designs for this summer and I call it the “Summertime swing”
I picked this one because it is different. A little noir yet happy. Dreaming away into nowhere while you rock back and forth. Its not the printed part that makes it stand out, its what’s not printed.
This design does look amazing on almost anything but really rocks on a totebag ( >> that is my ‘humble’ opinion anyway). I am super excited about this piece because it breaks free from the same ole boring totes. Its stylish, crispy clean and I realize it is not as ‘provoking’ as I usually create but I really love the usage of negative space. Plus, who does not like playground swings?
Anyway, stay tuned to see my upcoming weekly picks and while you wait, don’t be shy to check out the (updated) shop and find your own favorites.

Since the interwebs (=world) is flooded with reasons I decided it was time for a new battle. I call it the ‘no’ reason movement: Just rebel because you can!
I find it to be much more fun and rewarding to rebel low key, although I can respect a good reason, do you really need a cause? Is it not just fun to be a rebellion every once and a while?
> To connect with that inner spirit who does not care about consequences?
I mean, is the fact that to rebel is fun not enough reason? I think so. Personally I like to rebel by making people (un)comfortable with clothing. (Less of a mess than spray paint, easier than writing, it does not involve a lot of planning and you don’t need to involve too many people). + I’m not aiming on anyone in particular, anybody who’s either offended or entertained by whatever I am wearing or how I look, is a win for me. I am counting frowns, smiles as I walk down the street and add bonus points if it gets a conversation started.
Disagree to disagree, rebel when you feel like it,
for no reason at all. Because you can! 😃
BUT for all you rebels with a cause >> Well… consider wearing some of my shirts too… there is quite the selection to offend people or make them uncomfortable: Religious things, NSFW designs, get out of my space shirts…. you name it.June 13, 2016
Rebel without a cause!
I often question myself ‘Where are all the rebels these days?’ – I grew up in a 80s and 90s era with rock, grunge and punk music. There were people skating, skateboarding, BMX-ing on the streets and you could see graffiti everywhere. Resistance and anarchy were all over the place but nowadays everything is retro hipster, sleek and pretty, but everything looks the same.
Thats how Provo-King started, as a silent revolution a movement fighting ‘the boring’. We made a series of designs that blended in with that same modern look and feel but with a little hidden provoking or rebellion vibe in it.
We still believe in this original concept but over the years we did add more styles and colors to the mix. Provo-King clothing has slowly grown into a solid brand, a niche we like to refer to as ‘Undercover Rebellious’ or ‘Hipster rebellion’. We even like to call it ‘Rebellicious’ because it looks so sweet. :D.
Every design we create still has a fun or provoking message or image so you can make a statement -without actually expressing it-.
We think the world needs more rebels & we need more mavericks joining us in fighting the ‘dime a dozen’ this world has become.
Stop wearing boring stuff: Be bold, be brave and show your inner rebel!
