  2. MISBHV was originally a side project for Maczek. It started out as a small line of T-shirts made for Maczek’s closest friends to wear.

    “At first, we printed onto a few tees for ourselves and our DJ friends, who run big parties in the city. They were parody designer tees. People went crazy for them. Everyone was asking who they were by,” stated Mackzek back in 2013.

  5. The brand promotes a lifestyle that embodies independence, self-confidence, and individuality. Back in a 2013 interview with IDOL Maczek stated:

    “MISBHV is all about independence. Being young, while still being highly aware of yourself and the world you live in. It’s about doing as much as you can to live your dreams. MISBHV likes sexuality, strong women and powerful individuals in general. We’re quite hedonistic when it comes to life.”
