FLOWER OF LIFE
Famous for the last decade, this Bali based label is one of our favorite. Italian Luca Fotonico is one of true Goa freaks and he told us few words about his creations.
“…MY JOURNEY INTO SPIRITUALITY BEGAN WHEN I STARTED TRAVELING AND STUDYING AND WORKING WITH CRYSTALS. I MET MANY COLOURFUL PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY WHO WERE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL PSYTRANCE COMMUNITY.
ONE DAY ON THE DANCE FLOOR IN GOA I DISCOVERED THE SACRED GEOMETRY... THE FLOWER OF LIFE.... IT WAS PURPLE COLOR EVERYWHERE, IN THE SKY, IN THE OCEAN, ALL OVER ME AND ON THE SAND. THEN I HAD THE MOST AMAZING AWAKENING OF MY LIFE !
THE FLOWER OF LIFE IS THE SACRED GEOMETRY TEMPLATE FFROM WHICH ALL LIFE SPRINGS. THE ANCIENTS CALLED THIS PATTERN THE 'FLOWER OF LIFE' BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE A FLOWER AND IT REPRESENTS THE LAWS AND PROPORTIONS FOR EVERYTHING ALIVE AND EVEN NOT ALIVE: EVERYTHING THAT IS MANIFESTED!!!
THIS IS THE NAME OF THE LABEL, PLUS PLEAIDIANS.
SINCE 1990 I AM IN THE PSYTRANCE COMMUNITY. AFTER TRAVELING AND ORGANISING TRANCE PARTIES ALL OVER THE WORLD, INCLUDING BALI AND BRAZIL I LANDED IN GOA.....
IN GOA I BEGAN TO SELL MY CLOTHES IN THE FLEAMARKET. BRINGING THE MESSAGE OF AWAKENING, THROUGH THE TRUE DESIGNS OF SACRED GEOMETRY, AND MAYAN MYTHOLOGY PRINTED ON T SHIRTS. MANY PEOPLE STILL WEAR THESE TSHIRTS TODAY AFTER OWNING THEM FOR MANY YEARS!
NOW AFTER 15 YEARS OF OUR UNDERGROUND LABEL WE ARE READY TO GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUY ON LINE ALL OF OUR BEST DESIGNS..”
CHILL OUT PLANET .
We are talking to one of the founders of the label – Liolik and the label manager Alex
“ Chill Out Planet psychedelic clothing came from the underground scene of Russia's two major cities: St. Petersburg and Moscow. In the begging it was a community of creative individuals experimenting in the field of psychedelic arts including designers, painters, Djs, musicians, party promoters and other cultural figures.
So we decided to unite efforts of designers and produce some clothes.
That's how our first very limited collection of underground psychedelic clothing appeared in 1996 and was widespread mostly among our friends and supporters. They were warmly welcomed by the underground community as it was probably the only psychedelic and fluorescent clothing they could get in Russia. So we decided to continue developing this idea and Chill Out Planet studio began to produce psychedelic clothing on a professional basis
As soon as international cultural exchange came to Russia, the Chill Out Planet psychedelic clothing got known all over the globe in such countries as India, Japan, Northern and Southern America and Europe. As it often happens in Russia, only after artworks of the Chill Out Planet clothes have been recognized internationally, they became increasingly famous back home and it has become almost like a uniform for party goers in the Russian psychedelic scene.
Nowadays the Chill Out Planet is a dynamically developing psychedelic clothing company with world wide distribution We focus both on creating original and remarkable artworks for our clothes as well as on quality of materials and technology we use to produce our items. So our fan base is growing around the globe. You can find Chill Out Planet psychedelic clothing at shops in most hot spots for psychedelic culture such like Goa, London and Moscow as well as at world famous psychedelic festivals like Boom, Ozora, etc and of course you are very welcome to use our online shop for a full catalog of our products which can be delivered to you anywhere in the world…”

One of the true veterans on trance fashion scene. In early 90-s all Goa was wearing that mega fluorescent colorful fractadelic T-Shirts, hoodies, pants and even underwear. All parties were decorated by Ollie’s backdrops and Goa kids were playing with Space tribe teddybears.
We connected to Ollie trough Skype and that’s what he told us:
“ ..Space Tribe morphed into existence on the paradise beaches in Goa, India in the early 90's. There we all were, enjoying the parties & high on life, but not happy with the clothing that was generally available. We wanted to wear something that expressed our joy of life and somehow a pair of jeans with a benetton t shirt didn't come close . . . . Normal is Boring !
Our journies led us to beautiful Bali, one of the planet's creative hotspots, where we started experimenting ! And thus, the Tribe was born . . . . Created in Chaos !
The range of Space Tribe goodies has grown to include a wide selection of clothing and accessories, from the full colour UV collection through to our range of 'mandala' prints on black jackets 'n' T's & a wide assortment of innovative pants.
Then there's the more off the wall stuff, that we make just for the fun of getting it out there on the planet, & making the world a brighter place to be in . . . . Giant UV party banners . . . . fractal teddybears . . . . UV crash helmets . . . . (There was even the time we made hand carved UFO sunglasses !). We still have quite a few unreleased ideas. Check them out on our website…”
Founded in 1999, the Israeli/Iranian team, traveling between cities world-wide, began making the comfortable, stylish, durable and fun clothes they needed for their personal expression and their adventurous lifestyles. In time, they learned to design for functionality and to apply their original ideas. Today Psylo clothes have developed into a fusion of urban street fashion with a strong underground influence.
Over the years, the growing company has expanded into an international creative team with full manufacturing facilities. For the last 13 years, the factory, with personally-trained staff, has been based in Bali, Indonesia, famed for its strong traditions of design, arts and crafts. Here, the tailors and artisans are competent in the necessary complex and cutting-edge stitching techniques, mineral washes, color discharge, hand knitting and a variety of application techniques, combined with the highest quality fabrics.
The Psylo design team finds inspiration in arts and crafts of ancient history world-wide. The key to the Psylo look is tribal and ethnic art, influenced by tattoos, body art and primitive, sacred symbolism, combined with the 21st century manifestation of music and fashion. What emerges is a style of street wear with an underground culture at its core.
