Void Asylum° by Mario Miguelito is a luxury streetwear fashion label that embodies a unique and creative idea, rooted in past, present, and future cultural dimensions. The label offers a collection of seasonless street-wearable art, where each garment represents an artistic extension of the brand's core philosophy, "Think. Become." The brand aims to challenge the norm by embracing the fluidity of the natural world and encourages individuals to envision their aspirations and strive towards realizing them. The designs blend the raw edge of streetwear, sophistication of high-end couture, hodge-podge of fine art, and world culture, allowing the wearer to adapt to the frequency of their choice, effortlessly gliding across "the prismatic spectrum". The brand's ultimate objective is to inspire individuals to embrace their freedom, seize the day and cultivate their creativity.
