takeshi: limberup moscow for onitsuka tiger

Onitsuka Tiger has teamed up with new york based artist and art director Emeric ‘Takeshi’ Trahand, to create this visually stunning, 2011 european print campaign entitled the ‘limber up moscow project’.

Onitsuka Tiger and Takeshi have blended Japanese culture with seductive urban design styles.

“investigating and exploring nature and the results of
japanese and western crossovers..

the title of the project comes from the ‘limberup moscow’ footwear that was originally designed
as a training shoe for japanese athletes participating in the 1980 moscow olympics.”

Takeshi, represented these female training shoes by developing three prints depicting Japanese Ikebana flower arrangements as a symbol of feminine energy and achievements.

The updated ‘LimberUp Moscow’ comes in three versions: black with white stripes, blue with yellow stripes and white with red and black stripes.

I think these are absolutely amazingly beautiful prints. I love them.. And even though they are female sneakers.. They are ultra cool! Onitsuka Tigers have always been amazing sneaks. Love ’em!
