Paul Pope is (DKNY) Dope

Graphic novelist Paul Pope is hooking up with DKNY to design a 15-piece fall collection entitled "2089" that draws its inspiration from a comic book-style narrative. Here's the pitch from the press release earlier this year:
The scene is New York City, circa 2089, 100 years from the date of DKNY's creation. The story, like much of Pope's influential work, sets a futuristic love story against the collision of nature and industry. The prints are updated camouflage, and the graphics on tees, jackets and hoodies melds sci-fi with the prehistoric.
Mr Pope won the Best Writer/Artist Award at the 2007 Eisner Awards for his work on Batman Year 100 and has done a ton of commercial work, including designing tour posters and album covers for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the White Stripes. The collection is designed for the lads but Mr Pope says that a lot of the pieces, like this camouflage jacket, are "unisexy" (his words, not mine).
