APPLEBUM x WU TANG x NEW ERA「Shaolin」59Fifty Fitted Cap Preview
This doodle of mine represents the first official step in the APPLEBUM x WU TANG BRAND collaboration that debuted late last year. After having built a friendship with both Oli "Power" Grant and Muneo Sakaguchi over the years, and seeing the synergies between the two brands, connecting the dots made absolute sense. The resulting meeting took place in Manhattan at the Holiday Inn in mid town. After a brief intro, the concept was sparked of a capsule collection. During this creative session, I did a rough sketch on a hotel note pad. This would later become one of the centerpieces of the collaboration. After months of development, we proudly present the fruits of our labor. To give full credit where it is due, it is only right to salute PREMIUM GOODS, who's "Brooklyn." design created a stampede of followers. This too reflects their influence. It was an honor and pleasure to work with such creative minds on a project that spanned two continents and cultures. The Applebum x WuTang Shaolin fitted baseball caps are slated for a January 15 release date exclusively at www.applebum-store.jp and www.amazingstore.jp.
