PLASTICZOOMS collaborated during Tokyo Fashion Week with the trendsetting Japanese
fashion company DISCOVERED, producing clothing and providing the soundtrack for the
collection through the release of their second album, STARBOW. Additional collaborations
around this time included jewelry with accessory brand JAM HOMEMADE and creative
exchanges with UK streetwear brand LONG CLOTHING.
With the 2013 release of PLASTICZOOMS' third album, CRITICAL FACTOR, they went on to
an unprecedented footwear collaboration with Shinya Yamaguchi.

shows in Berlin with local and international artists and DJs, they began their collaboration
with the agency HIGHFeeL to release a new and exclusive physical EP (Veiled Eyes) and
