Collaborative Monster Truck Collection Tamiya Karfoot from L’Art de l’Automobile

L’Art de l’Automobile preps for Paris Fashion Week with another limited edition vehicular collection. This time, the French label is partnering with Japanese remote control (RC) toy experts Tamiya for a brief monster truck-inspired T-shirt capsule, complete with a matching toy car.
Each of the three special shirts is emblazoned with co-branding and bespoke “KARFOOT” monster truck imagery, dreamed up exclusively for this release. Long-sleeved and short-sleeved shirts are offered in neutral black and white editions, highlighting the prints on the front and rear of each item. The toy KARFOOT truck was created especially for this collection, a natural follow-up to TAMIYA’s 2018 Hornet collaboration with Supreme. Each item is packed inside a special box to drive home the nostalgic nature of the partnership.
Expect L’Art de l’Automobile to launch the exclusive KARFOOT goods will launch via a temporary PFW pop-up shop, though the remote control car will not be for sale.
