For anyone who has had even a pasing interest in designer (vinyl) toys, the name of Kidrobot is a familiar one. Not just a shop, but also the world’s major creator of limited edition art toys, Kidrobot also regularly collaborates with top brands to create limited edition items.
This time, Kidrobot have partnered with Swatch for a collection of eight Swatch Gents, each accompanied by a complimentary (and complementary) Dunny. Dunny is Kidrobot’s iconic and collectible ‘bunny’ vinyl toy which, in addition to being collectible in its own right, has also come out in customised versions. For the Swatch collaboration, artists Gary Baseman, Jeremyville, Frank Kozik, Joe Ledbetter, MAD, Tara McPherson, SSUR, and Tilt were chosen to design both the Gent and the accompanying Dunny.
The eight models will be available in Swatch stores and points of sale from August 18 in China, and worldwide from September at this website or in Swatch stores/ points of sale worldwide.
They will be sold either separately (US$70), in which case each model comes with its own 3 inch Dunny, or you can get the complete set (limited and numbered edition of 300) for US$1500.
