Seek Streetwear Enlightenment with Buddeng by Yama


After months of eye-catching photos, Korean artist Yama is set to debut his new Buddeng project at Shanghai Toy Show with pre-orders available (B82).   Happiness comes in many forms including streetwear bliss. The apparent deity of hypebeasts the world over, Buddeng contemplates material existence  decked out in Jordan 1 Off Whites, red kangol style hat and black-rimmed glasses. He's surrounded by a supreme calling from the golden Air More Uptempo to the unmistakable red+white luggage.   In addition to the OG red edition, Yama has also shown a striking Stone Gold edition with a statue/idol vibe.

Starting with a fun, stylish idea, Yama has achieved the full potential of the concept by delivering precise detail throughout. From the sneaker silhouettes (down to the treads) to the Rimowa-style suitcase which opens and features rolling wheels, Buddeng represents the culture in impeccable fashion. The pristine execution of the hypebeast essentials elevates the figure from commentary to coveted.
