PRODUCT: CIAOPANIC FOR CARROTS S/S 16
Over the past year and a half Anwar has been doing what I always knew he would do well - grow an international presence. His passion from streetwear comes from seeing the Japanese OGs we all know and admire do it so well. He is a product of that environment. So it has been amazing to watch Anwar travel the country that he admires and be embraced so warmly by retailer after retailer. The pop-up shop out there did famously last year and since returning to the stateside it's has in Japanese publications and blogs that I'm seeing the homie secure feature after feature. It's a blessing to see. There have even been some very solid collabs - the most fire being the most recent with heritage brand XLarge. That is relationship building at it's finest and I hope to see this collaboration become an annual one much like the StussyxNeighborhood releases. The culture needs it. The X-LARGE collection deserves all the hype BUT this Ciaopanic exclusive colorway collection is the highlight of the 4th quarter as of now. The Carrots Spring/Summer collection is already a solid paring of pieces but monochrome re-imagination is both genuine to the culture, in Japan particularly, and maximizes the simplicity and sleekness of the latest Carrots collection.
