Tokyo-based digital artist, Kenta Cobayashi has worked with Dunhill’s creative director Mark Weston on a range of clothing and accessories. The men’s line depicts distorted versions of Cobayashi’s own photographs of Dunhill stores in Osaka and Tokyo, all with a blue theme.
This is the second time he has collaborated with Dunhill. Cobayashi’s first menswear collection launched in March with a colour scheme of gold, brown and orange and featured his altered images of Dunhill advertising campaign imagery from the 1960s and 1970s.
Weston, who joined the British house three years ago, said, “I love the idea of ‘digital crafting’. The way Kenta’s work utilises distortion really struck a chord with me.” EDGAR spoke to Cobayashi about his partnership with Dunhill and how Weston has inspired him to perhaps seek a career in fashion one day.
