The best way to understand Cactus Plant Flea Market’s appeal is to not think about the brand’s ethos so much, but rather enjoy the whimsy and imagination of founder Cynthia Lu. Four-eyed happy faces, colorful shapes and playful caricatures have been signature elements for CPFM. Partnerships with NIGO’s Human Made, Anti Social Social Club, UNDEFEATED and even Marc Jacobs came to fruition this year with staples such as hoodies and tees emblazoned with Lu’s quirky designs.

On the footwear front, things were a little hush for CPFM but the release of the Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Dunk Low in a bedazzled makeup has surely garnered some new Cynthia fans.
