Retailer Afew and outdoor specialist Heimplanet are set to drop an accessories capsule that draws from the colored scales of a Japanese Koi fish.
The “Future Koi” collection features design work from Dutch artist Kwills and contains a backpack, a shirt and a 5-panel cap. Futuristic “Koi Comouflage” patterns are seen on the print tee and the inside linings of both the backpack and the cap. Constructed with nylon, suede and cotton, each piece is classic and functional but provides enough nods to modernity to suit urban surroundings.
The Afew x Heimplanet “‘Koi Future” collection is set for release online and in-store on May 21.
Meanwhile, The North Face has created an ultra-functional backpack that opens at the touch of a button.
