On the racks: a street-style capsule collection designed especially for the occasion in collaboration with U.S. sign painter Josh Luke, who already lent his hand to Juun.J’s fall collection.
The capsule will include T-shirts, sweaters, bomber jackets, backpacks and New Era caps.
Juun.J counts about 60 points of sale in 25 countries.
