Mika Ninagawa is best known globally for her vividly colored photography, but she has also expanded into movie making and, more recently, fashion design. The artist has a rock star following with young women in Japan. Her exhibitions draw big crowds and when her imagery appears on products, they usually sell out quickly.
Mika Ninagawa’s latest project is a collaboration between her own upstart fashion brand “M / mika ninagawa” and the iconic Japanese footwear brand Onitsuka Tiger. The collection was released in limited quantities at Onitsuka Tiger locations throughout Japan on November 8, 2014.
The new M / mika ninagawa x Onitsuka Tiger collection features two different women’s shoe designs (the “Mexico 66” model is priced at 24,000JPY and the Javelin Hiina at 25,000JPY), a track jacket (20,000JPY), and a tote bag (25,000JPY). All of the items feature Mika Ninagawa’s photography of bright red lips.
