Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike VaporMax
“Cactus Plant Flea Market” is a distinctly DIY aesthetic rooted in a love of cacti. The T-shirt’s DIY aesthetic and puff-print graphics make it stand out from other T-shirts. But what is Pharrell’s connection to the artist? Read on to find out. Enjoy a sneak peak at his new video.

Cactus Plant Flea Market was established in 2015 and has been a major player in the streetwear market. Its products are infused with botanical themes, smiley faces, puff prints, and other streetwear zeitgeist. They’re also hand-embroidered by Cynthia Lu, Pharrell’s long-time assistant. This brand is a unique mix of streetwear and art.
The company’s graphic designs resemble dreamy doodles. In the past, CPFM products were sold exclusively at boutiques. The brand’s products started appearing on merchandise stands of many artists in 2016. CPFM designs were commissioned by Pharrell and Kanye West for their recent tours. And this trend is growing. Now, you can purchase everything from t-shirts to sweatshirts and mugs.
Emily Bode, a young designer, creates pieces that have a distinctive aesthetic. Cactus Plant Flea Market focuses more on intricate garments than Bode. It also emphasizes a DIY ethos and uses a heavy dose of botanical themes. Both labels are worth exploring, despite their differences.
Cynthia Lu founded Cactus Plant Flea market in 2015 and is well-known for her streetwear inspired by raves. Her unique puff-print graphics are worn by celebrities like Drake and Tyler, The Creator, who are a huge fan of her graphic T-shirts. CPFM also offers a great selection of graphic hoodies. This one features the 2019 Rolling Stones No Filter Tour.
This past year, CPFM teamed up with Nike for an apparel collection that celebrates the love of puff-print graphic style. The line includes a hockey jersey as well as long-sleeve shirts that are inspired by the famous designer’s tattoos. There’s also a limited-edition line of furry rugs and tote bags with puff-print graphics.
The new capsule collection is a fun way for both brands to celebrate their 30th anniversary. It features Union’s iconic Frontman logo and puff-print branding. While both brands have collaborated before, the Union LA x CPFM capsule collection is a new twist on their partnership. The campaign photos were taken by Reparations Club, a concept bookshop owned by black women.
A distinct DIY aesthetic
Inspired by the distinctly DIY aesthetic of the Cactus Plant Flea Market, Nike is launching the Cactus Plant FleaMarket x Nike Dunk Low. The white-on-white upper is covered in Swarovski crystals, a nod to the rhinestone home fashion projects of the ’90s. The sneaker celebrates CPFM’s main theme of sunshine, air, and is also a nod to the CPFM logo.
Cynthia Lu, the brains behind CPFM, a psychedelic shoe brand, founded the line in 2015. Its products are notoriously hard to find, making the brand’s psychedelic style even more difficult to copy. The Cactus Plant Flea Market quickly became a global brand and one of the most profitable shoe brands. CPFM’s apparel and footwear are easy to spot because of their DIY aesthetic.
Cactus Plant Flea Market is a pop culture sensation. It also has its own mythology. The store, which emerged on the shoulders of pop culture high rollers in 2016, has a devoted following. The market has a star-studded fanbase thanks to high-profile endorsements by Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Snoop Dogg.
A distinctly DIY aesthetic is a big part of Cactus Plant Flea Market’s DIY philosophy. The brand is renowned for giving fans full control over the way they customize their shoes. Blazer Mid silhouette allows for complete customization of eyestays and laces. Customized versions of the Blazer Mid are highly customizable, allowing the user to create their own unique asymmetric masterpiece.
A new sneaker collaboration is on the way between Nike and Pharrell. Nike and Pharrell have collaborated on the Cactus Flower Flea Market. The smiley-faced Nike VaporMax will be released in August 2019. The sneaker will retail at $2K and will be deconstructed in order to show the “Sponge By You” design. The classic low-cut AF1 will drop in black and white colorways with labels reading “FLEA” and “AIR”.
The capsule line will be launched by CPFM, the clothing company. The capsule will be available for sale on Human Made’s website and online. The capsule is limited in quantity and will only be available in Japan. It is unclear whether Pharrell will be collaborating with Human Made for the CPFM clothing line, but it’s likely to feature some of their newest collaborations.
Among its collaborators are Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Kid Cudi. The clothing line has also collaborated with Pharrell himself. Since its inception, the Cactus Plant Flea Market has sold over $500 worth of merchandise on resale. The brand’s latest chapter is the Pharrell collaboration.
CPFM released a new apparel collection this year, in addition to a capsule line. The capsule collection included a khaki four pocket jacket and a camouflage quilted nylon zip up jacket. The capsule line also included a colorful satin cap featuring A$AP Rocky’s eye patches and a khaki four-pocket jacket. The CPFM website also featured Pharrell Williams’ capsule collection.
