LONDON, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Following on from the success of the inaugural It's Nice That Collaboration, ASOS have again teamed up with Alex Bec and Will Hudson from the cult magazine and picked five of the most imaginative and talented designers to create a series of limited edition prints.
Each artwork will be applied to a vest in either white, black and grey and sold alongside a set of removable stickers that can be applied to any design of bike. Each customer will also be entered into a draw to win one of five exclusive custom made Foffa fixed wheel bikes designed by the artists taking part in the project.
