Though all-over pattern/print is long considered “dead” in apparel design, Japan’s http://applebum.biz” target=”_blank”>APPLEBUM has an uncanny ability to “reinvigorate” this tired graphic. Last season, the label created the “http://freshnessmag.com/v4/2008/01/15/applebum-kicks-box-allstar-collection/” target=”_blank”>Kicks Box All Star” collection, essentially photo realistic graphic of a stack of actual sneaker boxes, printed on hoodies, back packs, and etc… This season, APPLEBUM is introducing “Sneaker Cleaner” design – an all-over print of what else, but all the specialty sneaker cleaners currently on the market. The graphics are quite detailed that you can make out all of the cleanser, such as the cleaning wipe by http://madfoot.jp” target=”_blank”>MADFOOT! (recognizable by its Mountain-Dew like graphics) to the cleaning solution by http://jasonmarkk.com” target=”_blank”>Jason Markk. The APPLEBUM Sneaker Cleaner Zip Hoodie is currently available at http://zozo.jp/shop/zygord” target=”_blank”>Zygord within ZOZO retail network.
