I have been a big fan of Japan born illustrator, Hiroshi Tanabe for a while now. His ability to use clean, subtle lines and create a seemingly simple composition that tells a complete story really gets me going. Recently, Tanabe became the latest guest artist to collaborate with Stussy.
“Though constantly evolving, his works maintain a sense of modernity unparalleled in fashion and beauty illustration today. His illustrations have appeared throughout Europe, The United States and Japan.” (HiroshiTanabe.com) And now, four original Tanabe illustrations have graced both tops and tote bags and become a part of street style everywhere.
