Artist and designer Brian Donnelly, known professionally as KAWS, is about to unveil a new sculpture and release a merchandise collection in collaboration with AllRightsReserved.
The eight-meter-tall sculpture is named BFF (Best Friend Forever) and will be presented at the Central Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand on June 30. It's designed to evoke the close and lasting friendships of our youth and features a furrier and cuter aesthetic than we've seen previously from the New York-based artist.
To mark the occasion, KAWS has teamed up with Hong Kong creative agency AllRightsReserved to release a limited-edition collection of toys, apparel and accessories. The highlight will undoubtedly be the 20” BFF replica plush toy, which sits alongside a T-shirt, tote bag, umbrella, and a towel. All which feature KAWS and BFF branding.
