Fashion Tribe: Tokidoki + LeSportsac = happiness
BY NADINE KAM / firstname.lastname@example.org
In celebration of LeSportsac’s 40th anniversary, the iconic bag retailer has announced a new capsule collaboration with pop-culture brand tokidoki.
The 19-piece tokidoki for LeSportsac collection will launch internationally in August.
As one of the brand’s top markets, Hawaii will welcome tokidoki designer Simone Legno, who — just as in past events here — will be meeting and signing autographs for fans from 2 to 6 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Ala Moana Center store.
On his last two visits, there were lines out the door to meet with the gracious artist, who took time to draw some of his favorite characters for delighted fans.
The launch marks the debut of new styles and fabrications for LeSportsac, and the introduction of a new tokidoki character, Palette. Dressed in a floral-spotted white coat, Palette’s spots change color with her mood.
Palette can be found in both the tokidopoli and tulipets prints, and accompanies every bag by transforming into a charm. On printed bags. the charm will come in black, and on black bags the charm will come in the tokidopoli print. All bags are lined in solid turquoise or boysenberry.
Below are a couple of videos from his 2007 signing and interview, to give you an idea of what to expect. Thankfully, my video editing has improved since then!
