Last week, KAWS announced his latest project, a collaboration with Nancy Gonzalez on a handbag collection. Continuing his foray into the fashion world (also see Uniqlo & Mira Mikati), the Brooklyn-based artist lent his iconic double x’s to the Colombian designer known for her handbags of exotic leathers and brightly colored hues. Some of the the resulting line can be purchased here with one of the totes making it into the TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art, an annual charity contemporary art auction.
