Casio, you wanna war me?
Kikuo Ibe is the father of G-shock. And if you know about G-shock, then you’ll know their cultural relevance. The first ‘G-shock’, the Casio DW-5000C, was designed by Kikuo in 1983. Since then, G-shock has gone on to make wave after wave in the streetwear scene, with collaborations with brands such as BAPE, Stussy, MMM and has been endorsed by the likes of Lil Wayne and Pharell.
Today, a few of us were lucky enough to meet and greet Kikuo. Check out the videos and photos below to see what went down.
