'KAWS:HOLIDAY' Hot-Air Balloon Tours Melbourne Skies

Featuring a jumpsuit designed by NIGO.

The KAWS:Holiday series has officially resumed touring. Arriving at its ninth stop in Melbourne, Australia, the 42-meter-tall hot-air balloon was spotted soaring through the skies of the city.

Working with the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), AllRightsReserved is able to actualize the COMPANION hot-air sculpture over a densely populated urban area for the first time. This also marks the second stop for the COMPANION ever since it was last shown in the U.K. back in 2021.

Speaking on the return of the series, SK Lam, founder of AllRightsReserved commented, “After the journey from land to sea and space, we are excited to take COMPANION to the skies again.”

To celebrate the second hot-air balloon journey of the series, AllRightsReserved invited NIGO to create a special edition KAWS:HOLIDAY jumpsuit. First worn by the pilot during the hot-air balloon journey, the piece boasted elements from NIGO’s Human Made label, along with KAW’s iconic “XX” motif.” The back of the jumpsuit also features an imprint of “KAW’s HOLIDAY” in its signature typeface, while one of the sleeves is adorned with a red and yellow “Australia” badge.
