He reveals his beginnings painting in his parents garage before turning his artistic skills towards t-shirts and apparel.

Our sentiments over here have been surprisingly good for the majority of releases coming out of Asics. Their archival footwear models like the Gel Lyte II and GT-II both share stream-line silhouettes from an era of rather chunky footwear. Despite being pretty much the precursor to Nike’s success over 30 years ago, Asics are doing well in their own regard thanks largely in part to great colorways. These are available now at Solebox who have also just debuted their very own micro-chip black VIP card which will be available soon.
We originally saw Japanese clothing brand Revolver and French music label Ed Banger begin a partnership last year on a series of product. Much of the collaboration artwork has been done by Ed Banger’s resident creative director SO_ME with no exception here as SO_ME puts together a touch of Ed Banger to a Revolver logo hoodie.
