Although Japanese brands PHENOMENON and c.e don’t hide the fact that they are strongly influenced by American and Western cultures, c.e designer and co-founder SK8THING maintains an open mind when it comes to creating graphics. The latest t-shirt design from the highly acclaimed designer references the company’s Japanese roots by implementing Japanese kanji and hiragana into its artwork. In a market swamped by the latin alphabet and the English language, this is a daring change for the prolific designer. These t-shirts were created for the Pariya Connection line from Japanese magazine and online media source EYESCREAM. Both versions are currently available as pre-orders from ZOZOMESSE, with delivery scheduled for late March 2013.
