"Original Fake" by KAWS Now Available at Fruition
I first became familiar with the works of New York-based pop-artist KAWS when I saw his art scrawled across the pages of French Vogue last year, and atop Cory Kennedy on the cover of Jalouse back in 2007. Most recently, you might remember his contribution to Complex Magazine, when he illustrated the cover that (inexplicably) featured jailbird Lindsay Lohan. Besides his frequent collaborations within the editorial realm of fashion, KAWS has designed for a number of famous brands, including Nike, Vans, and Comme de Garcons. His own textiles line, Original Fake, consists of clothing and Kidrobot-esque toys, and is now exclusively available at the concept shop Fruition in Las Vegas. The boutique specializes in avant garde street fashion, amd stocks designers including Jeremy Scott and Dr. Romanelli alongside original vintage pieces from the likes of Chanel, Dior, and Adidas. You can browse and shop the store's inventory on its website, but the next time you're in Vegas, take your hard-earned Blackjack winnings and head on over to this old-school gem.
