Vancouver-based accessories purveyors TAIKAN have tapped another local brand for their latest collaboration, and if you're a fan of off-beat illustrations then this has your name all over it. 

Cold World Frozen Goods is a fairly new brand but the brains behind it is certainly no new kid on the block. Alex Rhek is one of Vancouver's most notable local artists and chances are you've seen his work on a flyer, poster, album art, etc. etc. over the years. Follow his Instagram @rhek to see more—especially if you like rap music and funny drawings.  

The TAIKAN x Cold World capsule will include two sizes of TAIKAN's popular SACOCHE style, as well as a backpack and a tote in a couple of colour options with custom CWFG embroidery. You can preview a few of the items below before the collection drops exclusively at Livestock Chinatown (Vancouver) and deadstock.ca Tuesday, September 4th (that's tomorrow if you're having a hard time keeping up) 11:00am PST. Word is they are dropping in extremely limited quantities, so don't sleep!
