Upper Playground is releasing a four piece capsule collection from the internationally renowned, Herbert Baglione. The first part of the capsule is a hand-made wooden night-stand box with a screen printed Herbert Baglione print mounted on the top, only 50 have been made. Every detail of the box adheres to the same intricate detail that Herbert puts into his artwork, and Francisco Robles (master furniture designer and woodworker) aimed to complement the artwork with his hand construction of the boxes. Using a selection of alder and poplar woods which have been finished to a furniture grade, Francisco added his own collaborative touch to Herbert’s artwork and “crafted the edging to mirror the uniform molding that is found in many older San Francisco apartments.”
The rest of the capsule is composed of three t-shirts featuring Herbert’s subtle yet striking work on Upper Playground’s premium line t-shirts, which are made of a softer, finer cotton and have a slightly slimmer fit. The box/tees are available online at the UP web store and all Upper Playground retail locations (tees only).
