Cassette Playa X Nike Blazer from Amazing Grace on Vimeo.

Day glo maniacs Cassette Playa have got together with sports brand and street fashion monoliths Nike to bring you a special edition Nike Blazer. In Cassette Playa’s typically painful colours these sneakers were first seen as part of Carri Munden’s Spring/Summer 2008 “Future Primitive” runway show earlier this year but will now be made available from Nike Sportswear 1948 store at Bateman’s Row, Shoreditch as well as other select Nike retailers. For those uninterested in the shoe itself perhaps the video above may pique your interest; Carri Munden talks about her brand (Cassette Playa- doye!) and her upcoming collaboration- if you can spare 1 minute 54 seconds it’s worth a peek.

Swear and Cassette Playa bring you the Playa 1

By Jonathan Smith on August 5th, 2008

Bored of Brogues? If so then perhaps these imaginatively named Playa 1′s are for you. Available now from Swear this is their second collaboration with Cassette Playa, best known for bright and colourful t-shirts and apparel.

Made from patent leather and coming in two colourways; black and white and yellow and green. Interestingly, each pair mirror-image each other with their inverted colourway, which should turn some heads in the street.

These shoes are not for everyone but you have to admire Cassette Playa for thinking out of the (shoe) box.

Cassette Playa x Nike Blazer Hi

By admin on May 19th, 2008

Despite being branded a Nu-rave label, Cassette Playa have outgrown that fad and seem to only be getting stronger. With a collaboration with Uniqlo under their belt, they’re now teaming up with Nike to design a pair of Blazer Hi’s.

Made from patent leather, the colourway is certainly unique. I doubt many will have outfits to match, but that’s hardly the point with these limited edition trainers. The various colours on these trainers – ranging from apricot to purple – make these hard to work into an outfit, but I’d like to see anyone who could pull it off. They’re due out this summer and would be available in all your usual Sneakerfreaky places.

Cult clothing label Cassette Playa have made a video showcasing their latest collection. Carrie Mundane, the brains behind the operation is apparently very busy working and playing computer games which goes to explain the pixelated characters and day-glo colours of her clothing range. She tells FUK on video that her clothes are like "going inside a computer game, you’re playing it so much you become the game." Mundane has worked as a stylist for M.I.A and dresses bands like the Klaxons and Trash Fashion.
