Mike Cherman is the founder of ICNY and Chinatown Market. Despite his myriad contributions to streetwear, Mike’s working hand was largely invisible. Much of his work is instantly recognizable, though: he designed all of KITH’s branding from the box logo to the Just Us branding, for Ronnie Fieg. Much of the early A$AP Worldwide gear was Mike’s work, too.
"People say your brand dies when you go to Urban," Mike Cherman says, "Enjoy making no money for the rest of your life. I've been in Urban since the first collection. So if that means I'm dead, I've been dead since day one."
