DJ and producer Steve Aoki’s streetwear brand Dim Mak has teamed up with Candiani Denim to create a limited-edition pair of jeans.
The Dim Mak x Candiani EC-01 is a limited-edition five-pocket straight-fit jean with a distressed laser finish. It features hand-painted artwork by Aoki and his team of artisans, located in Las Vegas, Nev. The jeans feature designs of Yōkai, a type of monster in Japanese folklore.
“We work with a handful of talented artists all over the world,” Aoki told Rivet. “They each have their own style, and I personally work with them individually to create pieces based on what is happening around the world and in pop culture. I have always been inspired by Japanese culture, and these Japanese demons, called Yōkai, have some fun myths tied to them. The Yōkai painted on these EC-01 jeans actually came from one of my favorite Aoki 1of1 jeans that I wanted to share with a broader audience.”
The jean is available now and retails for $150.
