Probase, the hi-fashion streetwear brand from Basics Life, was launching their new range of light and comfortable cotton boxers for men. Continuing the brand tradition of breaking the retail industry clichés, Basics Life wanted a catchy, innovative packaging for the same. And we were only too glad to oblige.
To highlight the lightweight, airy nature of the boxers, we designed the pack to mimic the only other product that sold thin air – the potato chips packet. Quirkily and aptly named Machos, the package combined characteristic Probase wit and bold aesthetics to delectable effect.
The design proved to be a rip-roaring success at the stores, with the customers loving the irreverent humour and handy convenience. With over 2000 units sold in just 4 months since release, Machos ended up being one of the season’s bestsellers from the Basics Life stable, a lot like hot chips.
