It’s a hectic weekend at Casa di Kuisma. I’m packed with research work for my PhD but the few minutes I spent off the journals and writing, I came across some new heat from our good friends at KIKS TYO. The guys just released the latest KIKS Girl designs featuring Yuki Mamiya, Mai Nishida and Fumina Suzuki. The originators of the sneaker & girl designs are definitely not leaving anyone cold this spring. No matter how cold it might be out there (krhm Finland).
Fumina Suzuki delivers in her new “Dusk” Tee featuring Nike Air design by the same name.
Sneakers and girls is a combination that never grows old. KIKS TYO have mastered this combo from the start to the point of having other parties copy the concept in their branding. 2012 is no different from the past years in terms of hot collaborations. This season featuring likes of Yuki Mogami, Misaki Nitou, Mai Kyoso, Yua Saito & Arisa Kimura. Check out just few examples of KIKS’ artwork below or their other releases by clicking here.
Summer time! People are hitting the streets and finally ditch their jackets in the closet for the next 3 months. Yeah, time to go out and show off those tees. To celebrate the occasion, we’ve released a number of fresher than fresh KIKS TYO tees. Click here to check out our collection of new and some older classic tees from our collection. Lucky Bees, Baby J’s, Space Jams and so much more. Life’s good and so are these tees.
Another silent day, but we’re still here. Server maintenance gone awry. It is what it is. We still KIKS wid’it. Especially since we got a number of fresh, fresh like a winter morning KIKS TYO tees in the (Nordic Denim) House. Below just a teaser, sneak peek to what we’ll be updating on the site. As soon as I know all is running as per normal.
We’ve landed some new KIKS TYO tees for the Autumn. A nice little parcel recently dropped to our local postal office from where we picked up some of the latest KIKS TYO tees. Below few teaser pics of the newcomers. More details coming soon along with more teasers of upcoming tees!
Like my friend put it, KIKS turns heads like a chiropractic. I totally agree with him and KIKS TYO is making sure that those heads keep turning this Summer as well. Their latest Sneaker & Girl feature model is the lovely Mai Nishida. This gravure idol or should I say sensation adds to the impressive catalog of snekaer girls featured on KIKS’ tees in the past few years. You can check out Ms. Nishida behind the scenes of KIKS TYO photoshoot.
Following the release of their KIKS JP – Hope tee, KIKS TYO continues their line-up for the summer with Japan Spirits series of T-Shirts that features classic Japanese artwork. I really like the idea of mixing the KIKS TYO motif with prints that represent the history and culture of Japan. SO now you also have a chance to represent the Spirit of Japan in the form of pretty cool tees. Not that you can’t represent in the other KIKS TYO tees as well.
The year of the Rabbit is well underway and the year has at least started relatively prosperously. Not just on business front but I would rather say on all fronts. Life’s good and only going to get better. In celebration of the new Lunar Year KIKS TYO has teamed up with the ever-so-lovely Aya Kiguchi for a limited edition (only 100 produced) year of the Bunny tee or Bunny aya, either way you wanna call it. We call it Bunny Aya. You might remember a post on a KIKS TYO poster with the same image. Awesome to say the least. The shirt should ship at the end of March and is priced at 65 euros. Pre-order deadline is 3rd of March. Remember only 100 of these tees are produced worldwide so this one’s a collector’s gem. So act fast and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
It’s Thursday, one a day that will sooner or later turn into Friday, a day loved and cherished by so many. For me it’s all good no matter what the day. But if you are feeling a bit anxious and want to get past the daily routines and turn into weekend mode, chill. In case this is not your day I have something to cheer you up. Our friends at KIKS TYO just dropped another bomb on their Tumblr, a very… very nice poster featuring Aya Kiguchi, a pair of Jordans and well, bunny ears. No word on whether this is one of a kind poster or whether these will be on sale, but we will keep you posted, you can count on that.
KIKS TYO has announced something fresh and new for the season. Something never available before this. This time around collectors have a chance to get hold of a signed KIKS TYO Sneakers and Girls tee. You do have to be lucky to get one though, there are only 6 signed bags 3 for Aya Kiguchi’s Skunk Tee and 3 for Kana Tsugihara’s Easter.
