Hong Kong’s Milk Magazine celebrated their 12th anniversary with a special collaboration with Vans Classics.
The duo held a launch event on Friday to showcase the release of two new signature models of Vans.
The denim colored sneakers come in a slip-on model as well as a high-top shoe with white splashes and drips – a motif that alludes to milk.
The event was held at the Da Hood sneaker store in Causeway Bay. Da Hood isn’t a huge shop, so guests spilled out onto Leighton Road, with partygoers jumping in and out during the night.
As usual there were some interesting snacks! A standout was the local drink that combines milk with cream soda, rather cleverly packaged in custom milk bottles.
(The snacks were good, but we missed the delicious Vans waffles! 😉 )
Inside there was a band made up of Kevin and Kei Jai from Hardpack, and Jason Kui from Junk Unit. The highlight of the night was a guest performance by local MC, MastaMic who rapped over a live instrumental provided by the band.
Known for his abilities at freestyling in Cantonese, MastaMic can also rap incredibly fast. Here’s a video of his rapid-fire rhyming.
Congratulations to Milk Magazine on their 12th anniversary!
