In a splendid fusion of fashion, culture, and heritage, Pharrell Williams' auction house, JOOPITER, is again set to make waves in high-end collectibles. In 2022, JOOPITER debuted by auctioning personal items straight from Pharrell's closet. These items weren't just everyday pieces – they spanned rare gems from the old-school Billionaire Boys Club collections, unique pieces from acclaimed designer brands, and his original designs. After the recent buzz from the auction house's Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High Sample auction, JOOPITER is teaming up with the legendary NIGO, founder of streetwear giants BAPE and Human Made.
The auction promises to present an extraordinary collection of 60 archival pieces from NIGO's closet, a breathtaking range that stretches from rare footwear to exquisite jewelry.
For sneakerheads, this auction is nothing short of a treasure trove. The collection boasts of the Kanye West x A Bathing Ape BAPE STA College Dropout sneakers, personally signed by West. Equally captivating is the Marvel x BAPE collaboration. But perhaps the pièce de résistance in the footwear department is the Chanel x Reebok Instapump Fury. When it strutted the runway in 2001, it was more than just a shoe; it symbolized one of the earliest and most impactful collaborations between high fashion and sportswear. The collection also includes the pristine all-white BAPE STA's, bearing the signature of none other than Jay Z, which sweetens the deal further.
Yet, the allure doesn't end with footwear. JOOPITER and NIGO have ensured that jewelry fans are kept from wanting. The jewelry pieces and watches in the auction encompass a range that NIGO himself once adorned—a testament to his impeccable taste and the evolving design language of the fashion world.
JOOPITER’s From Me To You Auction will occur between November 9 and November 16, 2023. Prices for these items will more than likely exceed five digits. Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app to stay updated on the latest releases, raffles, news, and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
