Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike « Go Flea »
Cynthia Lu’s brand, CPFM, continues its successful partnership with American giant Nike with a collection called « Go Flea ». The sports-inspired collaboration explores new aesthetics to create multi-layered, unstructured pieces.
The collection was unveiled in March in a short film directed by White Trash Tyler and featuring artists such as itboy Bloody Osiris or young rapper Bouba Savage. Nike said that « Each garment tells its own story ». Cynthia Lu played with logos, colorways and graphics to create a unique, playful and bold style.
Some of the items were previously available through the CPFM website. Now, the full collection, including 6 pieces, is being announced on Nike’s SNKRS app.
The capsule consists of timeless elements of Nike’s heritage embellished with CPMF’s handcrafted touch that combines eclectic typography with playful graphics. The items are adorned with « Go Flea » and « Just Do It » slogans, as well as oversized or embossed logos. We find a black Air Sunshine hoodie, a nod to workers’ clothes ; an orange Shoebox hoodie designed to look like a vintage Nike shoebox ; two jerseys, one short-sleeved and one long-sleeved, paying homage to Nike’s history in high performance sports ; a premium Rave pant with a motocross look and a long-sleeved polo with a rugby heritage and a messy mix of logos and classic patterns.
The complete Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike « Go Flea » collection will be released on April 8, 2021 on SNKRS. Prices are set at 350$ for the jacket, 290$ for the hoodie, 175$ for the short sleeve jersey and 120$ for the long sleeve one, 200$ for the pants and 160$ for the polo. Don’t sleep !
