Building on collaborations with the likes of Supreme, Cav Empt and Human Made from last year, we are pleased to unveil the latest project with Fxxking Rabbits. Taking it back to the core of street culture, HYPEBEAST joined forces with Ryo Ishikawa who also works on DENIM BY VANQUISH & FRAGMENT with Hiroshi Fujiwara, and created a set of tees that add our own touch to the brand’s classic prints. We utilized the provocative “Smoking Kills” print that actually symoblizes Ishikawa’s moment in life when he quit smoking and started the brand, as well as an astronaut graphic, which he says resembles the following:
“In Japan, it is said that there are rabbits on the moon. So our story is, the astronaut found out that the rabbit was also another #FR2. FR2 is always appearing in unexpected places and at unexpected moments.”
Giving us a little insight into what’s in store for 2017, the designer/photographer told us that he will be launching a new flagship store in Harajuku next Spring.
Take a look through the images above and look out for The Fxxking Rabbits x HYPEBEAST 2016 Fall collaboration to release on December 31st, 8am EST at HBX.
