KOMONO and Lodown join forces on a new collaboration, effortlessly combining elements of hip-hop and skateboarding culture.
In 1995, Lodown Magazine was founded in Berlin as a visual component to the international skateboarding, surfing, and graffiti scene. The magazine established a worldwide cult like fan base collaborating with artists such as Kaws, Futura 2000, and Tom Sachs. The 100th print issue of Lodown is a salute to their past in print as they enter into a new chapter.
"In celebration of this momentous occasion, KOMONO and Lodown have collaborated on a limited edition watch release."
Intricate details are worked into the design, including the timeless embossment of “Lodown” on the dark green leather strap, and the number “100” playfully placed on the fixed loop as a nod to the 100th issue. The enlarged “1” on the clock face is livened up by the subdials, incorporating Lodown’s signature colors.
The KOMONO x Lodown watch will be available at select stores worldwide and online at komono.com Monday, May 2, 2016.
