Kangol + D*Face

Kangol Announces Collaboration With Contemporary Street Artist D*Face

This season, Kangol has introduced its exclusive collaboration with one of the most prolific contemporary street artists of his generation, D*Face.
D*Face’s iconic images and graffiti tags peer out and down at Londoners across a range of high profile locations, often surprising passers by who are accustomed to more non-decorated and mundane surroundings. D*Face has cemented his presence within the global contemporary art market with his work regularly selling at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Bonhams auction houses, yet he continues to tag work illegally in public areas. The celebrated artist has traveled extensively throughout the world showing and disseminating his artwork. In 2005, D*Face set up the ‘StolenSpace’ gallery, which continues to be London’s foremost contemporary urban art gallery.

While the D*Face/ Kangol collaboration will be ongoing throughout 2012, the first two styles, both made in USA, were released in Winter 2011. The “Stockton” is a stingy brim version of Kangol’s Player Trilby. The second style is a Bowler hat shape called ‘The City Riot’, made from extra ridged wool to give ‘helmet like’ head protection. For an added style statement, the ‘City Riot’ hat partners with a hand cut decorative wing crow feather, bandana and signature Crossed Wing Pin. The mischievous bandana can be styled to display a smile or a frown, so the wearer’s emotions can be read from afar. Both hats incorporate D*Face artwork, with a ‘Brain’ print satin lining created exclusively for the project. Now available at Kangol’s New York store and Kangol Boxpark in East London. Stayed tuned for more styles in 2012.
