News sprang up this morning that seemed custom-created for Offworld: a collaboration between Japanese hipster fashion legend Tomoaki “Nigo” Nagao’s A Bathing Ape label and The Pokemon Company for a line of Bape x Pokemon T-shirts (found via Pink Tentacle via Gus).
The images originate from a blog called World Famous Design Junkies, posted by a guy called Chris Burns, who said news of the project was sent to him via a blog called A Tiny City Printing Press, whose sole author seems to be, uh, a guy called Chris Burns.
Even more strangely: Burns says the images are “© 2009 A Tiny City Printing Press”, which is a bit odd, when you’d imagine they’d be © Bape or Nintendo, surely. So, without further clarification, I wouldn’t get your hopes up on spotting these in your local boutique any time soon, which honestly is no great loss when the designs don’t have anything on Polygraph’s previously / covered official own. Maybe I’m just fantastically under-informed.
