Do you know Nigo? If you are a fashion-conscious person living in Asia and clued into what's hot, then you would know that he is the current king of street style, a byproduct of founding and designing the clothing and shoe brand Bape, amongst other projects he has going on. He collects modern art, regularly hangs out with the likes of Kanye West and Pharrell, and is mobbed anywhere he goes. Naturally, a hotel is going to want a piece of this action, and the revered Park Hyatt Tokyo is the lucky recipient of a collaboration with him.

To celebrate their 15th anniversary, the Park Hyatt asked Nigo—who has spent time in the 50th floor's Tokyo Suite—to compile music tracks for a special edition CD that evokes Tokyo's mixed cultures. Hypebeast explains the direction with a bit more detail:

[Nigo is] fusing underground beats and the hotel’s modern luxury vibe through music. The aptly named 'Tokyo suite selected by nigo' contains not only hip-hop, but house and lounge beats from the late 80s and early 90s by Japanese artists.

And just as with anything that Nigo releases, the November 25 debut and sales of the CD will be extremely limited, appearing only in Bape flagships, at the Park Hyatt Tokyo's gift shop, and at Bape's US online store.

There once was a time when we would make sure to collect whatever CD the hotel were staying at was pimping, but now that hardly anyone buys actual discs anymore we've overcome this urge. This being so limited edition however causes our desire to own hotel CDs to re-flare. Anybody heading to Tokyo this winter?
