River Island has announced the launch of its art collaboration with street artist Felipe Pantone. The capsule collection features two artworks created exclusively for the range and placed on denim jackets, complete with matching loose-fit jeans.
Inspired by the back-print denim jackets of 1980s b-boy culture, the capsule consists of two jackets in oversized fits in mid stonewash and white; washes and cuts synonymous with the era. Pantone’s artwork is built up using cut and paste layering of printed fabrics, reflecting the three-dimensional nature of the artist’s newest works. Felipe Pantone x River Island will launch globally online.
