Artist Brian Kokoska dropped us a line the other day with this awesome update:
“I was invited to collaborate with designer Devon Halfnight LeFlufy on his new collection for Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. The collection will premiere in Antwerp in June. Upcoming pieces include more painted garments, and masks by me (Devon made the first round inspired by faces from my paintings). Additionally, there'll be a new shoe in production with the collection, as well as custom sunglasses sponsored by Theo Eyewear with hologram lenses by me.”
We asked Mr. Halfnight LeFlufy to weigh in, too, who said of the collection: "[It] combines the celebrity worship and teenage sensuality of LA with Kokoska's surreal world of harsh physicality and expressiveness, creating an onslaught of freshness which is an aesthetic as much as a mind state, as it elicits the intangible thrill of adolescent discovery."
Consider this a hot tip on Summer 2013: It's way, way fresh.
