3 things that drew me to this article:

 

1. I had followed guys-fashion-deals on tumblr and was drawn in this morning by my love for classic Adidas.

 

2. "Nigo" – I saw the above design on a white tee on the blog and was curious about this name / word. I was hoping it wasn’t something derogatory. Well, I found out it was a Japanese designer who partnered with Adidas on a line. Now, I want to see the line and curious about how this partnership came about.

 

3. While considering to scoop this article for our IMPACC NOW magazine, I realized this is good opportunity to imprint our re-branding as your "Lifestyle Marketing Brand."

 

P.S. I love Adidas, but not as much a fan of anime, but I do understand Adidas choice and I think its brilliant!
