Bristol based record and clothing megastore Chemical Records team up with UK brand Ichiban for a collaborative T-shirt design, paying homage to the store’s leagues of DJ customers, and possibly the worlds most famous sneakerhead, Mars Blackmon.
T-shirts come in Black, Red and White with a single colour print. The design itself is lifted from a previous Ichiban design (“Men think about sneakers every 7 seconds”) and features a likeness of the Air Jordan king, Mars Blackmon, visualising his thoughts, this time dreaming about his deck set-up. All in all a decent design, and I’m sure Chemical’s DJ following will be suitably impressed. My only criticism lies in the re-hashing of one of the brand’s older designs, which could perhaps highlight a lack of effort.
