It’s neither Original nor Fake to Close up shop
After much talk, OriginalFake‘s closing has officially set in with a message communicating its conclusion. After a run of seven years, including several extremely successful years, the graphically-driven brand under the help of Medicom Toy will be no more. Below is a message posted (in its original form) on the blog which notes the closing of store and brand, however the online store will remain open for an indefinite period of time.

CLOT & OriginalFake KAWS “DOWN TIME” T-Shirt
As long time associates, Brian Donnelly or more commonly known as KAWS, has been a long-time friend and associate of CLOT founders Kevin Poon and Edison Chen. The result of this fruitful relationship has provided the Chinese market with a consistent glimpse of one of the most respected and relevant artists of the last decade. For an upcoming book signing at JUICE Hong Kong for Donnelly’s KAWS: DOWN TIME book, a special collaborative T-shirt has been created. Four colorways will be sold as exclusives to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei and JUICE’s online store. The Hong Kong book set is available now for pre-order at JUICE CWB and TST for $980 HKD (approximately $126 USD).
