A rethinking of what athletic lifestyle wears could be, Japanese sporting goods giant http://mizuno.com/” target=”_blank”>MIZUNO launched several initiatives to explore the possibilities. Aside from the http://freshnessmag.com/v4/2009/01/26/mizuno-falcom-imaginaton-collection/” target=”_blank”>MIZUNO FALCOM banner, currently under the creative direction of Takahiro Okazawa, MIZUNO also created the MIZUNO CREATION label. Similar to MIZUNO FALCOM, the MIZUNO CREATION collection completely forgo its sportswear origin. Each item is instead re-imagined with minimal association with technical attributes. Such is the BREATH THERMO Cut and Sewn Half-Zip Pullover. Composed with MIZUNO’s patented BREATH THERMO fabric, the only technical element on the design. The vibrant traditional clothing of the S ¡mi, indigenous people from the Scandinavia:n region, along with certain Swedish art works, inspired its wildly adorned pattern. The MIZUNO CREATION Collection is currently available at both MIZUNO flagship stores in Tokyo and Osaka, in addition to authorized retailers, such as http://arica.jp” target=”_blank”>ARICA online shop.
