THE CRANE NETWORK: BANGKOK TAKEOVER
2 July, 2019
RAFIK, DJ and Producer 6x DJ World Champ, AFEW a well known Düsseldorf sneaker retailer since 2008 and 24KILATES the streetwear pioneer based in Barcelona and Bangkok, started THE CRANE NETWORK two years ago, a project that put the first seed with an epic party in Barcelona.
The French sportswear brand LE COQ SPORTIF with its Made in France guaranteed quality teams up for this project inspired by the CRANE, a migrational bird that flies from north to south connecting cities and cultures.
This 4-way project is a symbol of friendship and a link between music and streetwear, DÜSSELDORF, PARIS, BARCELONA and BANGKOK are our hometowns, four visions together to develop this concept.
The R800 silhouette is the collab key product, very limited pairs, premium materials as nubuck, different types of suede, perforated grain leather, engraved branding on heels and rubber logo applications on tongue and lace-keepers. The color palette is based on grays, black and spotted colors as turquoise, sand and red shades topping a white bottom unit with printed details.
The project continues with a DJ Travel Bag specially brought by Pinqponq Brand, strictly produced for friends and family.
A commemorative t-shirt with bold graphic applications rounds up the product proposal.
As a first step on the Crane Network project, Rafik visited Bangkok last May, 24KILATES team hosted an untypical Bangkok lifestyle tour, a curated spot selection through food, music and street culture.
A special workshop at Kreatah DJ School or a party at Penta Club, one of the best hip-hop clubs in Bangkok, amongst other experiences are recorded on a short film to share this lifestyle.
Exclusive launch at AFEW Düsseldorf, 24KILATES Barcelona and Bangkok on Saturday July 6th.
Events on each city will take place to celebrate the release of THE CRANE NETWORK project.
