Coveted in her seams and redefining a new conceptual name for portraiture, Footpatrol has had the pleasure of joining creative forces with Tokyo based artist and illustrator Sayuri – undertaking her own individualised spin on our latest rendition of the Communi-T series. Utilising her impressive portraits into a sentimental narrative, we believe that Sayuri would be the perfect fit, paying true homage to the world of sports that has always been deeply ingrained into the sneaker culture.
For this Communi-T, Sayuri wanted to mirror what sneakers meant to her and how this can be seamlessly translated into a T-shirt form. Taking cues from Micheal Jordan’s game changing Air Jordan brand and its subcultural influences on basketball, coupled with the well-renowned Manga Slam dunk series created by Takeniko Inoue, this T-shirt will certainly be a seasonal standout.
This one opts for a plush cotton construction coated in a crisp white hue with a printed graphic in black adorned to the chest. Micheal Jordan quoting envelopes the portrait and reads: ‘Love is playing every game as if it’s your last’ – celebrating the legendary b-ball icon. This motivational t-shirt offering is completed with a detailed hem lined finish.
The Sayuri x Footpatrol Communi-T will be launching in-store and online on Thursday 26th May, priced at £35.
