Nike x Mr Brainwash ‘Just Did It’ & ‘MBW’

nike-air-force-1-mr-brainwash-700x357Mr. Brainwash has joined forces with Nike to do what he does best: Make things that can vaguely pass as art, and sell them for shit-tons of money. The controversial street artist has put his mark on two popular silhouettes, which is really just a fancy way of saying he messily splattered them with paint. They are available in the “We Just Did It” sneaker which is a modified version of the Air Force One, and the “MBW Shoe” which is a new spin on the Nike Internationalist. Not a colab I’ll be picking up but no doubt they will be swept up by relsellers and appear at the likes of Crepe City for a small fortune. I’m off to Jackson Pollock my Air Force Ones…They’ll both be available for purchase here starting June 26th in extremely limited quantities.

Bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev is back with his latest series of illustrated streetwear staples exclusively for Highsnobiety. This time featuring the mischievous trio Huey, Dewey and Louie, the identical triplets come outfitted in Supreme, Nike, Givenchy and MORT. In the first set, the identical triplets double up on the unmistakable box logo, with each monochromatic outfit set against a matching pair of Air Max 1s. Inspired by the dark color palette used by Paris’s MORT crew in the second set, Georgiev complemented New York Fashion Week’s most popular cap with leather jackets and aggressive, high-top, star-studded Givenchy sneakers.

Contemporary Music Stars Reimagined as Cartoon Characters

20140328-065142.jpg

Based out of Lübeck, Germany, illustrator and graphic designer Zhi-Yun Zhang reimagined a number of musical icons as our most beloved cartoon characters with pretty awesome results. Yeezy for instance takes the form of Porky Pig, while the Bawse finds his alter ego in Spongebob’s dimwitted and equally massive homie Patrick. Check out the other combinations in the gallery above, including Pharrell, Drake and many more.

Dead Dilly Sneaker Collab Illustrations

dbda04e684561052d64115c5121228b2-442x572Dead Dilly, who we recently commissioned to imagine Kanye x Adidas and evenrebranded the NBA, is back with a new series of illustrations that imagine collabs between Jordan and high-end fashion labels. While merely a dream, a lot of these aren’t terrible. I wouldn’t be totally upset with some MMM paint-dipped Jordan III’s. Does that make me a bad person? Probably.

Being the savvy artist that he is, he also created what would be a Saint Laurent Paris Jordan 1 aka basically just the current Saint Laurent hi-top sneaker with a Nike logo. The only real brick I can detect is the Hood By Air Jordan 5, if only because if HBA were to actually collab with Jordan, then it would either be totally insane, with a ton of straps and stuff, or it would simply have a printed box logo on the side costing an extra £500. But, yeah, overall Dilly is visionary when it comes to this shit.

A Look Inside Nike CEO Mark Parkers Office

a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-1The internal happenings of Nike‘s Beaverton locale are often kept to a slight whisper, which has probably contributed to the brand’s success. Remote from the bustle of R&D and beside the marketing department sits Mark Parker – CEO of Nike. I originally posted images of his office a few years again but Obscura Magazine has released a peek inside the ‘newly-redesigned’ office of “The World’s Most Creative CEO” (according to Fast Company) in their latest issue, providing a new perspective on the successful businessman. An infamous bust of Lincoln, signed Air Jordans, and an array of vintage war-era paintings create a unique aesthetic all their own, with the office seeming more like a ‘home away from home’ than a workspace in the traditional sense. Enjoy a look, then head over to SILLY THING to pick up a copy of Obscura Magazine Issue 14.a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-2 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-3 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-4 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-5 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-6 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-7 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-8 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-9 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-10 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-11

Stephen Cheetham: Sneaker Boxes

Sneaker_Boxes_1-516x391

 

Following on from his Nike Decade sneaker artworks, illustrator Stephen Cheetham has turned his attention to another important part of any sneaker collection – the sneaker box…

After some initial research and image searching, Cheetham decided upon a collection of boxes from four of the largest sneaker brands – Nike, adidas, Vans and Converse. Each print shows a collection of boxes from the early days of the brand, through to the more modern boxes that are used today – all stacked as they would be in many a sneaker collectors bedroom.

‘For me it’s very interesting to see how a brand has evolved over the years,’ explains Cheetham, ‘and the box is a key indicator of this evolution. The logos, the colours and the box construction all communicate different aspects of the brand. I wanted to show the box as a product in it’s own right, away from the sneakers that it houses.’

All four Sneaker Boxes prints by Stephen Cheetham are available to purchase online (in a variety of sizes) from the excellent Print Process website now

“Football Invisibles” by Mark Yesilevskiy

6975563_15910089_bGraphic designer Mark Yesilevskiy has always been passionate about the beautiful game of football and to celebrate that passion, he’s produced this “Football Invisibles” project. Celebrating some of the more iconic football kits from around the world, Yesilevskiy has created pieces that not only celebrate these uniforms, but also keep the focus solely on them, rather than the sometimes oversized personalities that wear them. To do so, the graphic designer decided to completely omit the players and instead used a “ghost” technique which gives the uniforms a sense of life and motion. With kits like the ’94 Manchester United home, ’98 World Cup winning France  home, and the ’94 United States men’s national team included in the project, it’s worth checking out if you have love for the beautiful game. The prints can also be purchased here

Sneaker Sculptures by Jason Ruff

4

We’ve all felt it: The unique kind of envy that results from encountering something you want, but can’t afford. For artist Jason Ruff in his younger years, it was sneakers and cigarettes — which serve as materials for his latest project.

Using sharp scissors and infinite patience, Ruff has created perfect little replicas of classic Nike high-tops using nothing but the materials found in cigarette packs. OK, there’s some duct tape involved too. But you get the point. He describes it as “mixing the unattainable objects of my youth”, and yes — his creations definitely remind us of what it was like to be 15 and mischievous.

All things considered, these awesomely intricate little sculptures are bound to leave you wanting something. It’s just hard to decide if it’s a smoke or a new pair of kicks.
