Dutch artist Parra is probably most recognized in the art toy scene for his Pierced toy from Kidrobot. My biggest designer toy regreat is not scooping that when I had the chance. His Rockwell by Para line offers some redemption for those who are un-Pierced, though. Today he released his Spring 2016 collection under his Rockwell label, comprising of colorblocked nylon windbreakers and shirt, hoodies, and hats featuring his curvy illustrations and typography. Personally, I'm jonesing for the hardcover sketchbook decorated with his Falling Cats pattern. We've dropped some highlights in the gallery below, but click through for the full lineup and pricing.
