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.
