Juun.J x Josh Luke Go Global
Seoul-based designer Juun.J—a favorite of the Paris menswear circuit for his street-wise, architectural wares—has announced his latest project, The Global Pop-up Stores Project, a new capsule collection with American graphic artist Josh Luke.
“Josh Luke presents classic and powerful modern graphic arts,” says the designer, who previously collaborated with Luke on a series of looks for the F/W 2014-15 collection. “His works and signs are strong. His graphics are classic, yet futuristic, which perfectly created a modern edge to this collection.”
The pair worked together to produce a series of t-shirts, sweatshirts, bomber jackets, backpacks, and caps (with New Era) printed with Luke’s text and graphic designs, derived from classic hand-painted signage and gold leaf techniques and constructed out of Juun.J’s signature sculptural silhouettes. The collection will be on sale at 11 pop-up stores in eight countries from June 13 to July 6, including 10 Corso Como in Milan, Lazy Hazy Planet in Tokyo, and Opening Ceremony in New York and L.A.
The collection will be available on the JUUN.J website and on Ssense.com after July 6.
