Tokyo Rising is the big inspiration this Fall/Winter 2011-2012 for Palladium. The shoe brand is all about urban exploration. Tokyo is one of the most living and inspirational cities, especially after the tragedy of 3/11. People always felt safe and secure in Japan, until the big disaster. Not only Japan has changed, but the whole society.
Together with N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams, Palladium has visited Japan. Tokyo is like Pharrell’s second home. Pharrell is inspired by the Japanse people, their culture and their way of life. He takes us to the most special places like Tokyo Under Ground and he meets all kinds of young creatives. The city’s creative class has the feeling that they have to create something to show society how they feel about these times. In the documentary Tokyo Rising Palladium and Pharrell Williams discovers the creative heart of the city and her possible future. You can watch the documentary here.
“I can tell you these people are so strong. That remains part of what’s so inspiring and part of the magnetism that brings people to Japan” Pharrell Williams
