From studio to street.
On display at The Design Museum until October 24, Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street is an exhibition with StockX that presents the power of sneaker culture and the communities that have uplifted it. Supporting the exhibition, PLACES+FACES has released a line of merch forefronting the parties involved in this spotlighting of sneaker culture.
Including the logos of The Design Museum, StockX and PLACES+FACES on a white t-shirt and black hoodie, the campaign for the release features models wearing sneakers from the exhibition including Nike Air Rubber Dunk, Off-White UNC, Nike Air Max 95, OG Neon, and Nike SB Dunk Low Atmos Elephant.
Ligaya Salazar, curator of the exhibition, says that, “The exhibition gives behind-the-scenes insight into new upcycling and sustainable design practices, unseen prototypes predicting the future of performance design, and streetwear and fashion collaborations that changed the face of the industry.”
The collection is exclusively available from StockX’s direct-to-consumer release platform, DropX, from August 3rd before launching with The Design Museum alongside the exhibition on August 19th.
