Who said you have to grow up completely? Kidrobot certainly didn’t. Makers of limited-edition art toys and apparel, this urban retailer collaborates with top international design pros — think graffiti artists, musicians, and illustrators — in crafting its designs. The brand's unique look has earned it a cult following among sharp dressed celebs like Jay-Z and Robert Downey Jr, and several of its designer toys are now part of the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.
Founded by designer Paul Budnitz in 2002, Kidrobot is the world’s premier creator and retailer of limited-edition designer art toys and apparel. Merging urban street trends, fashion, and pop art, Kidrobot products feature unique collaborations with top international artists versed in backgrounds as diverse as graffiti, fine art, fashion, industrial design, graphic design, illustration, and music. Frequently featured in Nylon magazine and sold at Kidrobot gallery-stores, fine independent retailers and Barneys New York, Kidrobot apparel boasts fans that range from Jay-Z and Robert Downey Jr. to funnyman Seth Rogan.
Graphic tees don’t get much cooler than Kid Robot’s limited-edition, pop art-inspired designs. You can also raise your street-art cred by sporting one of this irreverent brand’s logoed caps, polos or rugby shirts. California-based company LNA, on the other hand, is all about the solids – tees, henleys, cardigans – in cotton and hemp.
