Streetwear-savvy Londoners would have paid heed to the growing number of pro-Palestine, Palace “Tri-Ferg” logos cropping up across the city in recent months courtesy of political clothing brand HypePeace, and now The FADER has spoken to the mysterious designers behind the altruistic garb.

Simply known as "J" and "M," the clothes were designed as a means of communicating uncomfortable topics (such as Palestine) to a wider audience. "Everyone likes a good parody, especially Palace and Supreme fans," says fashion designer M. "We deeply respect these brands and where they come from, but we’ve always found it astonishing how devoted some of their audience are. Imagine how empowering it would be if people would hype things like justice, peace, and equality as proudly as some people flaunt their brands."

HypePeace was thrust into the wider youth consciousness when Grime MC Novelist was spotted wearing one of the brands long sleeves earlier this year, while photographer Vicky Grout and director and DJ Crack Stevens have also been spotted in hoodies and T-shirts.

All cash raised by HypePeace goes directly to the Sharek Youth Forum, a Ramallah-based organization that helps young Palestinians develop in life and prepare for future employment.
