VP 1st Edition Sweatshirt
The first design by Van Paugam inspired by City Pop. Originally created to be a logo for the City Pop Radio stream, it instead became a popular shirt design. The kana on the right means "City Pop", while the kanji on the bottom reads "Love, Night, Music" in order from left to right. Below that is the phrase "Plastic Love" and beside that is a short poem by Van Paugam about nostalgia for long days and lost times. The image is meant to evoke the 80s lifestyle of decadence in Tokyo during the bubble economy era. With bright colors and blocked texts, it mimics a Japanese magazine ad. To be retired at the start of 2019.
