JUICE stores and the CLOT brand play a major role in relating Hong Kong’s trends to a global audience. New York artist KAWS (Brian Donnelly) is a long time friend of CLOT founders Kevin Poon and Edison Chen and they’ve given him the gift of his very own t-shirt to celebrate the release of his book ‘DOWN TIME’.
The custom tee design comes in four colours and will be sold as exclusives to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei and thankfully for us, at JUICE’s online store. The tee consists of a quirky graphic print with the signature crosses over the eyes and ‘DOWN TIME’ strewn across the tee in bright yellow. Available in red, grey, black and white, the tee will be bundled with the book as part of a set, available for pre-order with the price tag of HKD $980.
At a special event at JUICE Hong Kong, KAWS will be signing copies of his limited edition 112-page, Italian-made hardcover, which highlights the work he featured at his 2012 ‘DOWN TIME’ exhibition held at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. So be sure be around if you’re in HK on May 24th.
