Hiroshi Fujiwara is the designer behind some of the most popular NikeLab collaborations in recent memory, and fans of his work have probably noticed trends in his projects. Perhaps two of the most distinctive traits of his designs are the simplicity and color schemes used. With the fragment x NikeLab Roshe Daybreak set to release next week, Fujiwara took to Instagram to share the process and inspiration behind his designs.
In his Instagram caption, Fujiwara explained by simply stating, "I like simple standard shoes. and Navy." While his explanation was short, it does give us some insight on why he has collaborated on simple silhouettes like the Sock Dart and Roshe Daybreak. It's also no secret that Navy blue has played a pretty prominent role in many of the fragment x NikeLab collaborations, which makes a lot more sense now. While it's safe to assume that we'll see more navy colorways from fragment and NikeLab in the future, we're sure fans wouldn't mind seeing the colorway from the fragment x Air Jordan 1s come back, too.
