Heaven by Marc Jacobs x Kikokostadinov with ASICS SportStyle

Heaven by Marc Jacobs and Kiko Kostadinov, a year out from their first collaboration, are pleased to announce their second installment launching on 22.02.2024. This time a third collaborator, ASICS SportStyle joins, and the trio debuts the GEL-LOKROS™︎. The one-time release is paired with a series of garments with graphic works by Malaysian-born, Australian artist Spencer Lai and London based illustrator and animator Alice Bloomfield.

A year in the making the GEL LOKROS™︎ is paired with a series of washed slub jersey pieces adorned with cutaway necklines that display the sinister grandeur of two commissioned illustrations by Alice Bloomfield. These pieces are paired with a cameo necklace using an assemblage of glass beads that lead to its focal point- an illustrated cameo also by the illustrator.

The series of garments end with a commission of textural graphic works with proseby Lai. The artist uses repurposed materials from HeavenMarc Jacobs and pairsthem with screen printing methods, applied onto a washed denim skirt-trouser and amulti-wear hooded sweatshirt, a series of studs playfully adorn a black goredasymmetrical skirt.
