DJINN’S X DIFFERANTLY

Monday, March 20th, 2017

For our newest artist collab project we connected with French/German creative duo DFT in order to create a new version of the Easy Run sneaker and a snapback cap. All products are available now on our online shop and via selected retailers.

Words from the artists:

“With our distinctive unbroken line style, we employ highly refined drawing techniques to depict familiar mass-produced objects, as well as elements of the living world, thus exploring concepts such as continuity, identity and mortality. The core of our work consists in playing with lines and deconstructing complex imagery into minimalist two dimensional art, blurring boundaries between realism and reinterpretation.

For our collaboration with DJINN’S we wanted to keep faithful to our minimalist yet playful style. We opted for sober elegant colors and created a bit of an absurd pattern referring to a weapon threesome (including a mighty banana) and we reinterpreted DJINN’S logo in one single line. That was a blast.” – DFT

DJINNS X YAWN Collab

Another premiere via Highsnobiety, our collab with Dortmund based design studio YAWN. Check the link for more info!

A OH MY Film

For our newest artistic collaboration we got together with Dortmund based studio YAWN – which means YEAH AWESOME WOW NICE. The studio was founded in 2010 by the two designers Sandra Greiling & Annika Janssen. The result is a black & white, vegan version of our Easy Run and a 6 Panel Snapback Cap, a 5 Panel Flatcap and a Curved Visor Cap. The material mix for the Easy Run is a combination of casual and performance material, PU taping, polyester mesh and printed polyester lining on the inside.


Words from the artists:

“Over the last years we mainly focused on music artwork, poster design, merchandise and logo design. We are not really after a specific style, but one of our characteristic features of
our work is pretty much always the mix of analog and digital parts. Handmade type as well as patterns and textures are our passion. Therefore typography and illustration build a
substantial field of our creations. The same goes for experiments with analog tools and the resulting coincidences. Hereby everything doesn’t need to be clean because we especially like the imperfect, analog look.

Regarding our collab with DJINNS, we created different black & white brushstroke patterns and a corporate logo. Being big sneakerheads ourselves, it was our concern to design the sneakers the way, we like to have them on our feet the best way we can imagine, simple and cool. Real easy without any knick-knack and at the same time distinct.” – YAWN

 


Of course we would like to celebrate the release with all of you. The official release party will be held at Oma Doris in Dortmund on August 27th 2016 together with the BAUNZ guys. There will be free shots & candies, too (while supplies last) 😉 The collab itself will be available online and at selected retailers early September.

DJINNS X LODOWN MAGAZINE ‘BandanaRAMA’

Monday, August 1st, 2016


lodownmagazine.com/pulse/bandanarama

Text via Lodown Magazine:

Originally from India, the bandana is usually worn on the head or around the neck and is not considered to be a hat. Yes, we all know, that hip hop related fashion established grey zones between front-tied bandanas, extravagant hairdos and other things you can wear on your head..

Since the early seventies the gang-related rivalry between the Crips & Bloods made the color choice a little harder depending on the area you’d bust your steez. Tupac’s bandana tied into rabbit ears remains probably one of hip-hop’s most recognizable styles. The paisley pattern dominates the design of the bandana, but alongside the celebrations of Lodown’s 100th issue, a rare barb wire design by Marok can be spotted. We partnered up with Djinns for the bigger version for more wearing options and to practically use it as scarf on the bike.

This Bandana is exclusively available with every order at the Lodown Shop.

DJINNS X KID ACNE

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

For our newest collaboration project, we got together with UK based artist, illustrator, print-maker and sometimes MC, Kid Acne. The collab consists of a skate deck, a shirt, sneakers, a 5 panel cap and a 6 panel cap which is available now on our online shop.

His formative years were spent painting graffiti, making fanzines and releasing DIY punk/hip-hop records. During this period he began to craft and develop his own inimitable style.

In the late 90’s his work was first published in the now seminal Scrawl tome, which documented the conversion of counter culture illustration, skateboard graphics and left-field graffiti – preempting what are now widely recognized as ‘Street Art’ aesthetics.

At the turn of the millennium, his work began to appear as the backdrop for major UK club nights and in style magazines throughout Europe, as well as customizing everything from record sleeves to skateboards and knitwear.

In recent years his illustrations have adorned products for leading brands such as Kenzo, Prada and Elle, whilst his art can be seen throughout the globe, in wheat-pastes, murals and gallery shows from Beijing to Azerbaijan – most notably his first comprehensive retrospective held at Museums Sheffield in 2011, which attracted over 50,000 people.

Words from the artist himself:

“For the past 10 years or more, my artwork has largely revolved around a series of enigmatic female warriors, known as Stabby Women. My original intention was to present an alternative to the existing pop-culture references I saw in Street Art and Graffiti and create my own world of characters as oppose to sampling from existing cartoons and comics. Initially, I painted these characters on abandoned buildings as if they were ghosts, coming back to haunt or protect forgotten places. Over time, this evolved into my illustration work and as I became more interested in Fantasy Art, world mythology and alternate history, I began building ideas for their belief system, architecture, rituals and so on. Over the years I have wheat-pasted hundreds of Stabby Women in cities across the world. For me, they still present an alternative, hiding in doorways and on boarded up shops amongst the hustle and bustle.

Many of the Stabby Women wear animal inspired costumes and headdresses, I imagine them as a shaman or theanthropos from an unknown matriarch society.

For my collaboration with DJINNS I have taken repeated elements from the Stabby Women’s costumes, such as fur, feathers, scales and hair to create patterns and textures, which I thought would work successfully for the products. I’ve really enjoyed the collaboration, especially as we’ve stripped everything back to raw, black and white line work. I think it’s a strong look.”

DJINNS X SOLE HUNTERS (HUNTER COLLABO)

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

DJINNS X Solehunters – A match made at the River Ruhr! Through a long lasting cooperation and the regional proximity (Mülheim and Essen) it was about time to work on our very own project. The result of this is the “Hunter”. The “Hunter” is a mix of a runner with casual elements with a knitted upper and the typical EVA running sole. Furthermore this is the first DJINNS model with a knitted upper. The colorway reflects the black and petrol contrasts of the Sole Hunters Store.

The official release party is on November 6th 2015 and the instore release is on the following day, November 7th 2015. Next to the Sole Hunters store, the sneakers will be available at Save Our Soleand Soulfoot.Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif
