The collection borrows from KAWS’ Michelin Man-inspired Chum character in addition to featuring other signature figures and his infamous ‘xx’ motif. The figures and designs are seen on a variety of garments such as shirts, t-shirts, bags and sweats. Additionally, the collection’s designs include re-worked illustrations from the first collection with CDG in addition to fresh new designs.
One of the highlights of the collection is a patterned lime-green shirt covered in a KAWS print. Recently, KAWS unveiled an 18-foot bronze-built sculpture at Rockefeller Center in New York City. The new sculpture is another one of his renowned “COMPANION” characters and is titled “SHARE.” The new sculpture is a part of his “WHAT PARTY” exhibit that is currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum.
Pieces range from £59.00 (about $82 USD) to £385.00 (about $533 USD). The new CDG x KAWS collection is now available on Aphrodite’s website.
