“ELEY KISHIMOTO…the patron saints of print.”
Living by the maxim “Print The World,” ELEY KISHIMOTO have always strived to create work that is executed simply, clear in intention, exhibiting a unique creative flair that rejects passing trends and fads.
From a partnership, ELEY KISHIMOTO quickly gained a reputation for incisive and intelligent print design with their craftmanship gracing the world’s catwalks via work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, to name but a few.
Although initially earned as a result of these vibrant fashion collections, the company’s renown has always been very much associated with their freedom to decorate anything and everything. It is this print design aesthetic that is key to their works’ identity.
Collaborative works with BMW motorbikes, Eastpak bags, Duvel beer, Incase (Macbook, iPhone, iPad accessories) amongst others, incorporating the key Flash print is a further development of this aesthetic and yet another intriguing twist in the continuing story of those shapeshifters of the print world, ELEY KISHIMOTO.

The iconic model of the SUBU family. Its streamlined, heelless design makes you ready to go outside in a matter of seconds, while the inventive 4-layer sole structure lets you experience an unexpected level of comfort.
With the outer Teflon coating, our shoes are more resistant to water and stains than ever. The outer layer can repel most water- and oil-based liquids, causing them to bead up and roll off the fabric. Therefore, even in the case of any spills or splashes, there’s no need to worry. Excellent resistance to water and stains is guaranteed by the DuPont company.
