Last year we saw German plush toy company Steiff collaborate on a teddy bear with legendary fashion designer, best known for being the head designer and creative director for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld. This year, Steiff are back with yet another high-profile release, this time in collaboration with Japanese cotton-masters, Loopwheeler. Well known for their recent work with Nike Sportswear, Loopwheeler have manufactured a miniature hoody to fit Steiff’s teddy bear. The hoody comes complete with elastic cuffs, metal zipper, chest patch and utilises screenprinting. Denim overalls and canvas sneakers are also in production for a final release. The patch was created with a ‘Germany meets Japan’ motif – paying homage to the nationalities of each collaborator. A human-size version will be previewed shortly.
