After announcing that it would be closing up shop back in January, premium streetwear brand OriginalFake has finally shuttered its clothing line. The brand, originally started by famous Brooklyn artist KAWS and Japanese toy maker Medicom Toy closed its doors last Friday (May 31) after seven years of business. The announcement was made via Medicom’s website, which posted the following message:
“Thank you very much for your continuous support to OriginalFake in the past 7 years and all of the staff deeply
appreciates your support from the bottom of our heart. It was an irreplaceable history for us to create OriginalFake.
We will move on towards the next stage taking advantage of this great experience so we look forward to your continuous support.”
Though their OF partnership is over, KAWS and Medicom will continue producing toys. And if you’re looking to cop a few pieces from OriginalFake, there’s still some stock currently available here.
