Filipino Startups Collab for a Japanese-Inspired Work from Home Capsule Collection

Project 7 to 1, an e-commerce start-up founded by Digital Creator and Entrepreneur Carlo Ople, has teamed up with SNK ATK Design Lab, a technical clothing design studio in the Philippines, to offer a capsule collection of Japanese-inspired Work from Home (WFH) apparel.

“For this collection, the best partner was SNK ATK because we share the same passion for Japanese design and technical clothing that delivers functional benefits and not just purely aesthetic,” said Carlo Ople, founder of Project 7 to 1.

“This is for the modern-day work from home Filipino who wants clothes that are comfy and unique which they can wear while doing zoom calls, presentations, and other tasks,” he shared.

The collection includes the following…

Shadow Noragi Jacket v721

A lightweight transitional jacket for lounging at home or for light rain/windy days outside. This is a modern interpretation of the noragi, a traditional Japanese workwear piece with shorter sleeves than a kimono to allow for unhindered movement.

A light hooded shirt with minimal print details. Comes in black. 100% cotton fabric, triple-layer hood, extra long drawcords, and extended wrist cuffs with thumbholes to keep your hands warm during cold days. Signature SNK ATK Hidden Blade on the sleeve.

Project Shadow Utility Shorts

Lightweight & breathable shorts with an oversized utility pocket for your daily carry. Comes in a black water-resistant ripstop fabric in an athletic cut, extra long drawcords, zippered main pocket with mesh compartment, Pro:ject Shadow patch detail.

Project Shadow Compass Tee

project 7 to 1 collection 1

A boxy fit graphic tee with a front pocket and maximal back print detailing the 7 to 1 philosophy in a technical illustration style. 100% cotton with amber prints. Signature SNK ATK Hidden Blade on the sleeve.

Psalm Alfafara, Creative Director and Principal Designer of SNK ATK, made sure every detail was deliberate and purposeful.

“Our hero piece, the Noragi Jacket, captures the entire philosophy of this collection. We used lightweight water-resistant nylon ripstop to ensure protection and easy washing, combined with premium brushed fleece on the collar and the pockets for extra comfort for contact points that are likely to touch the skin,” he said.
