Arkitip x OriginalFake x Incase
OriginalFake is the brain child of the inimitable contemporary artist, KAWS. Last year he opened his first boutique in the Aoyama district of Tokyo, Japan with Medicom Toy. This summer marks the 1 year anniversary of the opening. To recognize the occasion Arkitip has once again produced an issue edition with this prolific artist. Arkitip and KAWS together have partnered with bag specialist Incase to create a custom designed laptop sleeve that will serve as the packaging for this special anniversary issue edition.
Along with designing the packaging and issue edition, KAWS has curated the entire artist's sections of this issue. This is unprecedented in Arkitip's history.
This partnership between vanguard designers and manufacturers flexing their renowned skills creates a one of a kind Arkitip edition.
