Gabriel Urist x Phenomenon B-Boy Pendant

Japanese b-boy and designer Big-O of Phenomenon collaborated with Jewelry sculptor Gabriel Urist to create a rare and extremely limited piece for collectors, “Mr.P”. The piece is a pendant that comes gold-plated or in sterling. The 80’s b-boy strikes a classic pose with his beat box, details like his New Era hat make the piece modern, while the low tops are throwbacks from another era.

Urist’s work is of course known the globe over and is especially popular amongst fashionistas and b-boys in Tokyo, Barcelona and Paris. His rings, pendants, belt buckles and other pieces rended in everything from rose gold to gunmetal have earned him respect in the art world and recent contracts with the NBA, Nike and Timberland. Big-O is one half of the SWAGGER TOKYO design team, PHENOMENON is his own personal, relaxed luxury brand. “Mr. P” arrives at the Swagger flagship store in Tokyo the end of April.
