As mentioned before, the sneaker scene is not all about the sneakers. You can’t just wear anything and pray your sneakers will do the rest. Ofcourse, the Tee you’re rocking will matter eventually. So why not rock your kicks on your tees as well? Enter Kiks Tyo. A japanese brand, Kiks Tyo’s been in the biz a couple of years now. I personally own a couple of Tees. At first, I bought mine over at Singapore. Now, they’re available at Crate! Actually, they’ve been available at Crate since early this year (correct me if I’m wrong guys).
Kiks Tyo’s got all sorts of Tees. But the most memorable and most recognizable ones are the ones with the sexy Jap models on them. For those who want to flaunt their kicks but too shy to have hot chicks rock ‘em for ya, there are other designs. I didn’t take photos of them, because I know you guys want to see chicks rock kicks.
For the first 2 images here, I did not print that. Also, I do not have a collab with Kiks Tyo (I wish I had). The M David here stands for Milen David (Filipino? I believe so). Milen David is an artist living and working in Japan. Her style is minimalist and usually takes day-to-day visuals and translates these to minimalist artworks. She utilizes markers and brushpens to create organic and high-contrast drawings. Ofcourse, these Tees are limited (along with all the other Model Tees) and def cops.
So this ends my 3-part Crate series. Crate is located at the G/F of the LRI Design Plaza along Reposo, Makati City. They’re open from Wednesdays-Sundays. Aside from Kicks and Kiks, Tees from Sole City, Royalefam, Neighborhood, Stussy and other brands are available. Sneaker Freaker Mags are also available.
