Hypetalks: Hiroshi, Errolson, Matt Williams, John Elliot, Nigel Sylvester in “Art if Collaboration”.

One of the most anticipated chats of HYPEFEST, jeffstaple sat down with a host of the industry’s most in-demand creatives to break down the science of collaborations. Matthew M. Williams of ALYX, Errolson Hugh from ACRONYM, Hiroshi Fujiwara of fragment design, John Elliott and Nigel Sylvester all took part in the sprawling, hour-long discourse.

Topics ranged from Elliott underlining the storytelling aspect of collaboration, while Fujiwara discussed the birth of his HTM line with Nike. In fact, all of the participants have collaborated with Nike, resulting in a series of references to their individual time spent with the Swoosh.

Later, Hugh broke down what makes a good collaboration, describing it as “Two people, who are good at doing what they do, [make] some new thing that they couldn’t do without each other.” By the end, the panelists agree that there are too many collaborations in the industry, perhaps even too much product. “I think it’s our job to create product that really means something,” said Williams. “It kinda should deserve to be in existence and collaborations should check that same box.”

BIG POPPA (ArtSpiration)

When I came to New York in summer of 2001 I met an African kid named TuTu and we quickly became good friends while attending Theodore Roosevelt HS in The Bronx. Tutu spoke more English than I did so I listened, observed, learned the slang and most importantly the American culture quickly. TuTu was always a fresh mofo. Always had clean white tees on, du-rag and always cared about his waves and how his line up (haircut) would look lol. He put me on @nike "Uptowns" (Air Force 1s) and @timberland sneakers.

One thing that struck not only his, but also my classmates attention was when I wore a Coogi sweater and a matching beanie (fake of course) to school. Ever since that day everyone knew me for being the only fly Filipino cat in my school. It wasn't about wearing "fake" Coogi but it was more like the idea of understanding the American culture and being accepted as Asian and a minority. However because of the way I dress, hiphop/rap/r&b music I would listen to, we connected and got cool. I gained respect from my peers.
