Here's an odd team-up. KAWS has partnered with famous handbag designer Nancy Gonzalez, who is known for using luxurious materials and rich dyes. KAWS' Xs aren't embroidered onto these accessories; they're applied with acrylic paint, and they're likely hand-painted, since the crocodile suede's texture would make it difficult to screen any graphics on. You've got to wonder how broad the cross-over is between the two artists' demographics and whether simply slapping a few Xs on something will make if fly off the shelves. Who are we kidding? Of course it will.
