Do you know the game ‘Pipes’ (thats probably not the real name, but if you know of it then you’ll know what I mean)? This design just reminded me of it. How random was it that it was a mini-game in BioShock? One of the games of the year contained a game that I would remove from my cellphone if it wasn’t locked on there, and a game that is probably only on my cellphone because the developers couldn’t think of another decent way of making use of the touchscreen.
Anyway, I figured it was about damn time to drop back in on Naive Clothing, and it would seem that they’ve been rather busy. Plenty of new designs for you to sink your teeth into, and this ‘Waterworks’ windbreaker is up there with the best of them. I really like the way that the design slides just-and-so past the zip, as if they were pointing out to us how more thought had gone into this piece than you would first imagine (even if they warn you that irregularities may occur because of the trans-zipper print).
