Local artists have been engaged by Jordan Brand to create unique art pieces on each floor, infusing the store with their creative touch. These artistic influences can also be found on the store’s products. The Jordan Local Artist series, in collaboration with Chinese street artists like Xiaoye, showcases limited-edition tees that serve as a contemporary representation of China’s vibrant youth culture.
