New York-based artist Ava Nirui has been known for her imaginative designs which juxtapose luxury brands and popular logos against various random objects. She became intrigued with the idea of bootlegging after working on a set of faux-designer clothes for vintage Barbie dolls. From there, she’s taken everything from sneakers, to basketballs, to asthma inhalers and reworked them with a tongue-in-cheek logo treatment. One of her most popular series included fusing designer labels including Moschino, Balenciaga and Celine, with the embroidered Champion logo. While her creations were originally not for sale, she recently took to her Instagram account to announce that her Gucci x Champion bootleg hoodie would be available in a limited run of 10 pieces to purchase via her website.

While the item has inevitably sold out, take a look at more of her works here and check back for updates on any further releases.
