For the many fans who are still “numb” from the abrupt end OriginalFake, brand co-owners MEDICOM TOY and Brooklyn-base artist KAWS decided to soften the blow with a special capsule collection curated by Dr. Romanelli. Straight from his most recent project with Stussy Taipei, the Los Angeles-base artisan augmented well-known OriginalFake styles from the brand’s past 7 years into intricate new pieces, a process documented by Romanelli himself recently in some “Before & After” photos. To close out OriginalFake on a high note, the capsule collection will go on display at the brand’s flagship store in Aoyama, Tokyo starting today with official release set for next Friday, May 3rd.
