You Will Most Definitely Be Interested In This Jeff Koons x H&M Collaboration

We were pretty excited when Uniqlo collaborated with MoMA on a collection of Warhol, Basquiat, Haring and more clothing and accessories recently, and the upcoming Jeff Koons x H&M is equally a big deal to us, if not moreso. You see, there’s a balloon dog HANDBAG. And it’s real leather.

The collaboration is happening to celebrate the Koons retrospective kicking off at the Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as the opening of the H&M museum-inspired flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

In other excellent news, the new store will have a home wares section. The sick vases, pillows, candles and other accessories have actually been available online for a while, but it’s obvi better to be be able to peruse same in person, if you feel like it. You do have to be able to feel a pillow first to decide if you want it as part of your sofa situation, right?

The Jeff Koons bag will be available in some other stores across the US as well as online, beginning July 17. His retrospective opens June 27 at the Whitney.
