Sunika Kuraun is translated from Japanese to Sneaker Crown. The secondary name for this crown is SneakTip. We have always been inspired by the innovation in the design of sneakers and through that inspiration created a crown that combines architectural precision, thoughtful proportions, layering of materials, and a new patent pending double strap enclosure to increase the ability of the crown to contour to your head. This design is over a year in the making, and it went through multiple variations before reaching this point. The combination of premium yet breathable materials merge to bring forth something completely new. This is the first functional adjustment in headwear in a long time and we made it sexy.
The front of the hat is split in material layers that coincide with curved side panes aligning to create the illusion of one cohesive piece. This also streamlines the look of the hat and minimizes the visible crown depth. The top two panels are layered screened cotton twill and mesh combined to create a hidden message. In this case the top simply says Dungeon Forward. Sewn onto the side panel is a new feature to headwear which we will simply call the cage. The term cage has been used in sneakers for some time now. This is where the innovation occurs. One nylon strap centered between two molded rubber/silicon blended elements creates a secondary enclosure and contouring mechanism. The two pivot points for for this strap sit high to create a secondary sizing adjustment.
Over the next month we will be sharing much more about this crown and how it came about, and because of you forward thinking, you will be one of the first to have it in your hands.
Its Baaaaack!!! The inaugural grassroots collaboration piece with Artist Nate Dee. Inspired by the Strength an tenacity of the women in the Mursi tribe whom stand willing to do anything to protect their tribe. Savage when necessary yet beautiful to the core. Composed of fine cotton twill, polyblend, leather embellishments, and a premium leather enclosure. This is simply a statement piece for the dopest people on the planet.
Natural Beauty is Endangered but it shouldn’t be. Each giraffe’s spot pattern is as unique as a finger print, and our muse is originality uninfluenced by control. This natural condition cant be duplicated, so we combined the unique spot pattern of the Nigerian Giraffe with a pattern inspired by Nigerian textiles.The name Koure originates in Niamey, Africa. Koure is the high point in West Africa where endangered Nigerian Giraffes congregate. No Zoo, just natural life. Nature X Order
Where is the love when cupid is nowhere to be found. Where are the roses when there is only concrete on the ground. When will the gods be ready to upgrade their crown. XOXOs and ROSEs for the beloved.
Grassroots collaboration piece with Artist Jubeanski. The heart is weak and the journey to a halo often sees times of personal war. Read through the lines of this piece and find your own meaning. Halos & hearts is inspired by the heartbreak that often comes from love. In a dope piece that takes inspiration from both Michelangelo and Basquiat, a war between the purveyors of love and love it self ensues. The Cupids whom once taught those to go to love now have realized that the path of love leads to hurt. As a result, they upgraded their bows to heavy artillery and are out to destroy love altogether.
The misguided youth who eventually found success and made it out will relate to this crown. Its s for those with perseverance and relentless grind. This is for those whom see no barriers they cant surpass. This crown is for the fittest whom will survive at all cost.
The Dungeon Forward slap capsule borrows from common icons to create unique pieces inspired by and for the culture. When the grind is unstoppable and you take responsibility for your position in life, the only way is up. Level Up
