DKNY Taps Paul Pope for Illustrated Narrative Fashion
Back in October, the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that its next exhibit would feature comic book superheroes and explore their relationship to fashion. Taking this theme and running with it, DKNY hired celebrated graphic novelist and manga illustrator Paul Pope to collaborate on a capsule collection.
The resulting designs are interesting — not quite what one would expect from DKNY — but very cool. From the press release:
The line fuses the world of comics and fashion by creating a cohesive narrative which emerges through prints and graphics on clothing to create a truly unique application of this art form.
