New York-based artist and designer KAWS is no stranger to collaborations. With decades of collaborative projects in his portfolio, KAWS has teamed up with the likes of Jordan Brand, BAPE, Supreme, Medicom Toy and many others over the years. Now, KAWS has reunited with Easy Otabor's Infinite Archives to support Rebuild Foundation with a special-edition t-shirt found in two colors.
The design of the tee includes callouts to each of the three involved collaborators. On the front "REBUILD" can be read on the chest, found in KAWS' iconic art style and outfitted with the notorious X'ed out eyes. Continuing in this style, the letters "IA" for Infinite Archives are found below the collar on the back. Black and white are the two colors chosen to serve as the base of the tee. All profits for this release are being donated to Rebuild Foundation, a "non-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding the cultural foundations of underinvested neighborhoods."
Launch for this collaboration is set for June 1 at 1pm EDT via Infinite Archives.
