After making its debut last year as a colette exclusive, KAWS’ collaborative bomber with designer Mira Mikati is making a return for Spring/Summer 2016 — this time with two additional designs in tow. As with the previous drop, this season’s release utilizes a combination of appliqué, print, and intricate embroidery to showcase KAWS’ distinctive artwork on the colorful pieces. Said Mikati:
I love that his work appears to be so understated. Take a closer look though, and you’ll see each piece is perfectly painted, layer upon layer — you’d think a computer might have done it. And that’s similar to the way I approach a collection — the overall effect has a sense of ease, but the details are important inside and out.
Retailing for $1,895 USD, each jacket is available in-store now from the likes of Boston-based concept ALL TOO HUMAN.
