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

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 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
