Established by co-founders Oni Souratha and Mekhi Phifer, ONANONG, which in Thai means “beautiful”, is the vibrant new swimwear collection that blends the carefree attitude of beach culture with city sophistication. Conceived in and based out of Los Angeles, the line is a reflection of that seeming dichotomy in the way the city is the center of the entertainment and music industries even as it maintains the laid back attitude of the land of eternal sunshine.
Inspired by the mythical power of the full moon and the famous parties of Southeast Asia, MATTE's Full Moon brings to light New York’s distinct culture and edge – a transcendental beach party in the center of New York Harbor with sounds, art and food from a carefully curated lineup of musicians, DJs, artists, and chefs. This year's lineup features music from Miami Horror, Tanlines, Wild Belle, Cyril Hahn, Haerts, the Knocks, Yuskek and more, as well as food by An Choi, BEP, Koso Fresh, and Spur Tree.
The Full Moon film was a collaboration between MATTE and director Trevor Owsley. The film takes the viewer on an escapist journey from the New York streets to the beaches of Shelter Island, all in the creation of a feel-good mood that captures the true Full Moon spirit.
