For the Nike Be True campaign which is to celebrate one of the all time beloved sneaker, the Dunk, artist Eisaku Kito has created a figure called DIVA which is currently displayed at Colette. Here’s Eisaku Kito’s inspiration behind the figure
“I got the idea of an angel from the white shoes and the color white. It’s not the kind of angel people imagine. It’s a mysterious being created by people – similar to a UFO. Sound is the hidden concept, or maybe, the result of my personal desire to want to hear sound. But, then again, Divas and angels are related to sound and music. And if you think about it, NIKE is the name of a goddess, so maybe it all ties together.”

Based on some of Burton’s old retro styles, they developed the Archive Series. Old models such as their Racing Gloves (1988), Safari Sweatshirt (1989), Freestyle Shell (1990), Freestyle Pant (1991), Freestyle Suit (1991) and Glacier Jacket (1992) were all revived. Although the aesthetics are very much old school, the designs have been upgraded with the latest tech advances to keep things modern.
