This inked edition of FLABSLAB's "Nigo Had It" is an exclusive, unique custom piece produced in collaboration with Clifford Wong. Wong designed and hand-painted the custom theme in celebration of the Year of the Tiger, 2022, on "Nigo Had It (Mono)". 

 

FLABSLAB's "Nigo Had It" was inspired by Nigo's ensemble piece, "Jean Prouvé Marcoule Bench with Astro Boy Sculpture", sold for HKD1.3 million (USD165,000) at Sotheby's 2014 auction and exhibition, NIGO® Only Lives Twice. It was among the 250 items of rare jewelry, furniture, accessories and artwork from the extensive private collection of Nigo, the Japanese fashion designer, DJ, record producer and founder of A Bathing Ape (BAPE).

"We saw this as the example of Nigo's brilliance, of being able to put things together and creating something new. The Astro Boy without the Jean Prouvé Marcoule bench would just have been Astro Boy. Putting the two together as one piece gave it a new meaning. We figured that since we'll never be able to own the original, we might as well make a smaller version to make a statement about what the man used to have but had to sell almost everything he owned." - FLABSLAB
