In approaching their latest collaboration project with BEAMS, SK8THING took a road less traveled. Although, c.e is not known for making social commentary, this latest capsule collection serves to suggest social topics in a very subtle manner. The maggot design was created especially for this joint venture, which at first glance does not seem to have any deep meaning. However, the designer utilized this insect pattern as a metaphor for objects or information that is out of our sight and eroding quietly in our society. Furthermore, VANS came on board to help produce a limited edition Era sneakers, featuring the maggot pattern on its uppers. These items will be available only from BEAMS flagship stores from early June. A special installation will be set up from Saturday, June 8, at BEAMS Harajuku store as well.
