Collage Artwork Produced with a Unique Worldview
Presenting a Special Collection with Contemporary Artist buggy
Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger presents a contemporary collection fusing fashion and sports as well as heritage and innovation.
In the twelve-year sexagenary cycle, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger, the brand symbol of Onitsuka Tiger.
In commemoration, we’ve prepared a variety of goods with the motif of the zodiacal tiger.
For the occasion we’ve commissioned original graphics from buggy, an artist who has created fluid, impactful portraits of the current generation of media stars including supermodels, fashion designers, celebrities, heroes and heroines. We present a special collection of goods printed with original Onitsuka Tiger graphics playfully designed by buggy.
This is the second collaboration between Onitsuka Tiger and buggy, the first being in 2018 when we commissioned artworks from him for a festival event we sponsored.
T-shirts imprinted with the tiger, Onitsuka Tiger’s brand symbol, will be offered only in Japan.
The zodiacal tiger is said to bestow good fortune. Be sure to enjoy the new take on this motif in Onitsuka Tiger’s “Tiger Goods.”
Starting Friday, April 22 2022, advance sales will commence on Onitsuka Tiger’s E-commerce site in Japan. Beginning on Thursday, April 28 2022, in-store sales will commence (certain stores in Japan excepted).
