Made on the Street is a repository of fashion and hustle stories and interviews with some of the freshest voices of streetwear, streetwear photography, and hip hop culture on Instagram.
The electrifying vibe of streetwear is felt everywhere. One of the freshest voices of this culture in Asia (particularly from Indonesia) is Agung Aripurwanto, who finds a home in the social platform as @gunga.
Equal parts elusive (his face often hidden from view) and accessible (his personal style as clear as day on IG), Agung is a valuable addition to the ever-growing #MadeFamily.
When did you start blogging on streetwear and what was your creative inspiration or motivation behind it?
It all started three years ago when I was collecting sneakers. It felt incomplete using the newest sneakers without any good shit to wear them with!
Describe your everyday personal style to us - and how it's evolved through the years.
I'm living in a tropical country, which has only two seasons in a year (summer and rainy season). Tees, denim and sneakers – as well as flip flops – are my go-to as my “daily uniform”. The street fashion scene is now way better in the past years than it used to be, with brands like Fog, Supreme and Bape as high-end contenders in the market.
How do you stay updated in fashion? What's your preference in the whole classic-trendy style spectrum?
I buy almost everything from resellers, usually online and with sky-high prices. I prefer minimalism and use only timeless yet classy gear.
Any big plans or personal projects in the pipeline?
My goal is to make our family company bigger than before, of course by working as hard as I can and letting God do the rest.
How do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I see happiness on the horizon! I’d probably be collecting and investing in more classic streetwear stuff.
