CLOT and fragment design have been linking East and West for a long time. Both organisations collaborated on a silk-covered series of Air Force 1s in 2019, which may have paved the way for a future Nike Dunk Low project that is reported to be in the works.
The three-way linkup's exact parameters have not been made public through official channels. There is reason to believe the most recent rumour, though. An early image of the pair shows "FRGMT" branding in a dark tone at the spine. The environment has a fabric with a variety of abstract patterns. Also, the sneaker appears to adopt a straightforward off-white and black colour scheme, a design decision that complements earlier work from both brands. The 20th anniversary of CLOT is commemorated by a special co-branding stamp on the insoles.
The Nike Dunk has grown widely available over the past year, with certain versions being sold well after their scheduled release dates. Sneaker production cycles typically last 18 months. So, the upcoming Swoosh project from Hiroshi Fujiwara and Edison Chen might have been in the works since August 2021. The Dunk's popularity has declined since late 2021, although fragment and CLOT could revive the recognisable silhouette. It's possible that a High will be released later on if the low-top shoe speculations are accurate.
Enjoy this very early peek at one of the two, and check back for updates.
