About SUBCREW SUBCREW was established in 2004 by Sam Lee, Frankie, Kobe. The name SUBCREW is a play of the words; SUBMARINE & CREW, representing the relentless struggles of a submarine crew that is holding their position in a time of turbulence, united and fighting for survival in the open sea.

ABOUT MADE™ The label MADE™ is new to the street fashion industry but Jahan is a familiar face (and voice) in the scene. The inaugural collection with Subcrew is titled WORKING CLASS HEROES. Much of the theme is dedicated to those who work under radar with their faces unseen, they whose work takes precedence and speaks for them. This label is made by, and made for all the unsung heroes of our postmodern capitalist Babylon.
ABOUT JAHAN LOH Artist. Writer. Vandal. Thinker. Lover. Player. Sculptor. Hustler. Jahan is all of these and none at all because he defies stereotype. After leaving his mark on the walls of the concrete jungle in Singapore, he’s been making waves in Taipei and beyond with his high-octane visual pop art works, and of course, through his controversial CHERRY POP.
