MANTIS - OAKLEY

Mantis Oakley’s. Developing the No One Global conceptual style further, we designed the Mantis Oakley adaptations. The product comes in a model airplane-style set where each unique piece is popped out of its stencil, clipped together, and added to the Oakley Sherpa headpiece, creating a truly unique look. Taking inspiration from the natural world, the headpieces emulate the posture and sharpness of a praying mantis ready to hunt its prey. This statement concept is being brought to life by the team at No One Global Labs and will be available to a select number of customers.

STORY TIME ORIGIN

In the heart of Kyoto, Japan, there existed a small workshop tucked away in a narrow alley. It was here that an aging artisan, known only as Hiro, poured his passion into crafting exquisite pieces of traditional armor. With each meticulously crafted piece, Hiro not only shaped metal but also breathed life into his creations, infusing them with a sense of elegance and strength.

One stormy night, as the rain poured relentlessly and lightning illuminated the sky, a young fashion designer named Aiko stumbled upon Hiro's workshop. Drawn by the mysterious aura surrounding the place, she entered cautiously. Inside, she found Hiro toiling away, his hands expertly shaping metal into intricate patterns. Mesmerized by the craftsmanship before her, Aiko struck up a conversation with Hiro. As they talked, she couldn't help but notice the raw beauty of the armor pieces scattered around the workshop. Inspired by their timeless appeal, Aiko proposed a collaboration to Hiro – to translate his artistry into modern fashion accessories.

At first, Hiro was hesitant, but Aiko's passion and vision gradually won him over. Together, they embarked on a journey to merge traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design. Hours turned into days, days into weeks, and soon, they unveiled their masterpiece – the concept handbag accessory they named "TIDE."

TIDE was more than just a fashion accessory; it was a symbol of the union between tradition and innovation, strength and elegance. Inspired by the fluid movements of a samurai warrior and the intricate details of traditional armor, TIDE embodied a story of heritage and creativity.

As word of TIDE spread, it captured the attention of fashion enthusiasts worldwide. Each piece carried with it the essence of Hiro's craftsmanship and Aiko's vision, making it a coveted symbol of style and sophistication.

And so, from the humble confines of Hiro's workshop emerged a timeless accessory that bridged the gap between the past and the present – a testament to the power of collaboration and the enduring allure of artistry.
