Cookie, real name Kunihiro Kawashima, is an artist and comedian taking over the Japanese art world, and is even making waves with touring works in Taiwan and China. He's known for his inexplicably quirky stylings, wide smiles, and unconventional drawings; faces, hands, and bodies are contorted and almost joked about within his artistry.
The two have come together for a shoot like no other, taking place in both Formichetti's studio and in the center of Times Square. The shoot sees Cookie outfitted in the stringy stylings of Eda Birthing, a Nicopanda hoodie, and a "Cocoon" by Erik Bergrin. Each silhouette is exaggerated, of course, but structurally cascading like the loose ends of a punchline gone wrong.
Check out the full shoot, below.
