The atmos x Dave White collaboration
Teaming up with Tokyo-based lifestyle sneaker boutique atmos, contemporary British artist Dave White continues to put a spotlight on environmental issues and endangered species with his debut solo exhibition in Japan and this apparel collaboration.
Featuring abstract patterns from the artist’s original paintings, this collection and exhibition at atmos Sendagaya’s Tokyo flagship combines a series of rare artist proof editions and 1-of-1 prints, featuring 24-carat gold leaf and diamond dust, plus embroidered logo tees. White’s signature tiger and safari prints have also been incorporated into shorts, nylon tote bags, caps and a selection of water bottles.
This isn’t the first time that White has combined his love of art and streetwear either. His early sneaker paintings caught the eye of Nike and resulted in a 2016 collaboration, which saw him show his appreciation of the iconic Air Max 95 and Britain’s native foxes and rabbits in hairy suede textures, contrasting pink and blue designs, printed footbeds and boxes.
atmos x Dave White will be on display from July 13 for four weeks. The capsule collection will be available exclusively in Japan and Complex Con Chicago in the US.
