While not all of it is for sale, PZtoday regularly holds pop-ups at Dover Street Market where you can cop limited edition items. Now the artist behind it all – PZ Opassuksatit – has coupled up with Helmut Lang as part of their lovey-dovey “Valentine Collection” (yes, we know it’s August).
Featuring lustful hoodies, short sleeve and long sleeve shirts, each product comes in two designs: a bold, red heart and arrow, or a cartoon animal giving you a “thumbs up” next to a New York graphic.
To set the Valentines mood, PZ has dressed a group of young Parisians at some of the city’s top romancing spots: from selfies on the steps of Sacre Coeur to awkward posed group spots in front of the Moulin Rouge. Oh là là.
How did your collaboration with Helmut Lang come about, PZ?
It’s all happened since last year, after I did a few projects with Ava Nirui (@avanope). She asked me if I wanted do some collab graphics on some Helmut Lang pieces and, of course, I said: “yes”! I designed two graphics and that’s how everything started.
Why the “Valentines Collection”?
Because I need love, and sure everyone else!
