Editor’s Notes: After releasing a basketball, Chinatown Market unveiled its first full drop from its collaboration with heritage brand, Smiley (who’ve owned the official smiley license for over 40 years). As expected, the iconic smiley face imagery takes center place in the drop, adorning tees, hoodies, a side-bag, and the aforementioned basketball.
The smiley face doesn’t just appear on apparel either, there’s also a custom-made smiley basketball hoop, designed Victor Soloman, who created “Literally Balling” — a series of backboards that were covered in jewels. This drop is the first of multiple Chinatown Market x Smiley releases, with a “hard goods” and unannounced three-way collaborations coming later this summer.
Chinatown Market x Smiley’s collaboration dropped on July 18, with prices ranging from $40 to $80. Take a look at what’s left below, and click through to cop.
