EDISON CHEN AND HARRY WONG SHARE THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE CLOT x NIKE "CLOTEZ"
"From 2023 and our 20th anniversary onwards, our new mission statement is who and how we nurture the next people," shared CLOT Founder and Creative Director Edison Chen. "We feel like we've already gained our position in the market, and we want to bring people up and allow them to hopefully be the number one later."
With a mission to nurture new talents, CLOT Founder and Creative Director Edison Chen tapped aspiring designer Harry Wong for a creative exchange on the new CLOT x Nike “CLOTEZ”. The two first met at the 2018 Nike: On Air contest in Shanghai, where Chen served as a judge and Wong a contestant. Chen drew inspirations from the “Kung Fu Soul", Wong's competing Air Max design, taking it to the next level with his unique perspectives and Nike's technological know-how, resulting to a transformable 3-in-1 design encapsulating a Kung Fu shoe-inspired silhouette.
Watch the video below as the two share with us the inspiration and the creative process of the CLOT x Nike “CLOTEZ”.
The CLOT x Nike “CLOTEZ” in black & white is set for release on February 10, 2023, at JUICE selling doors worldwide. Follow @CLOT and @JUICESTORE social media channels for instant updates.
