Key Pieces: The jackets and overalls are the standouts in this bold casual lineup, along with the adjustable caps.
Editor's Notes: Brooklyn-based LQQK Studio has teamed up with Italian clothing brand Paul & Shark on a twenty-six piece collection, made completely in Italy, and it marks as Paul & Shark's second collaboration in its history.
Consisting of jackets, overalls, sweaters, graphic tees, polo shirts, sweatpants, caps and more, the collaboration explores the nautical inspiration that has always been present in Paul & Shark's designs and LQQK Studio’s interest in innovating.
The collection’s key jacket along with a bib, are made of Typhoon 20000, Paul & Shark’s signature waterproof/windproof fabric, while the graphic tees incorporate Paul & Shark’s rich history of imagery, as LQQK Studio flipped colors and employed their expertise in screen printing. In addition, one of the standout jackets are rendered in the colors of Italy's flag to commemorate its heritage, while co-branding is also evident throughout the pieces.
The extremely limited edition collection will be split into two smaller capsules and will be sold at select retailers only.
On February 22, the entire collection will launch at Procell NY first, while a worldwide debut at select stockists will follow on February 25 at Need Supply, SSENSE, Slam Jam Milan, Dover Street Market Ginza, Bodega (Boston & LA) and more. Head on over to Paul & Shark's website now for more info.
