pics from Taiwan

During my visit in Taichung, had a brief opportunity to do some shopping. Shopping in Taiwan is always pretty solid, with some good selection of different products that they generally dont carry here in Europe or in North America.

Nice HK brand, two percent (2%). some great T's and shoes with some really solid graphics and material treatments. check the site if you can read chinese at

"LOVE YOUR BODY, FLASH" Adidas sneakers print. Huh?

A super tight Japanese brand I also blogged from Bread & Butter Barcelona. I still dont know the english name (if anyone does, please email me), but really solid product and graphics. I especially love the laces with the wooden bead.

Tissue dispenser or sex toy? or both? WTF?!

Puma Mihara jacket. The jacket is actually 100% polyester like a normal track jacket with a Tromp L'oeil effect print. all the sippers, buttons, and denim are actually fake. Really great concept and executed excellently!

Had to include some footwear, of course! These are from the Yojhi collection, much better in my opinion than his stuff for Adidas. A really great treatment of a basic canvas vulcanized shoe with a twist. Print brouged toecap and punched brouge details. nice.

back to Taiwan (again)
Off to Taiwan again for another development trip working on FW 2006 Fashion and Indoor products. I'll try my best to keep up the posts, but connectivity is sometimes sparse.

Keep checking back often though, as I have a reader contest coming up shortly!

PS. If any readers will be in the Taichung area and would be interested in a meet up (coffee, go-karts?), drop me an email.
