With Original Penguin’s legacy of style behind them, six of the world’s hottest urban illustrators ran wild with the blank canvas of legendary proportions. With her dewy-eyed, loose-lipped, and oftentimes spotty characters finding their way in classic Original  Penguin Fixed Volley swim shorts and button-downs, UK’s definitive doodler Hattie Stewart puts the tongue in cheek to traditional prep dressing.

Zosen Bandido

Spanish street artist Zosen Bandido, with his outburst of colors, geometric shapes, and tribal patterns, decks the Original Penguin’s well-loved heritage fit crew neck. Dutch graphic artist Merjn Hos lends his organic scribbles to Original Penguin’s graphic tee; offering an abstractive form of casual dressing. And Argentine graffiti artist and muralist Ever (aka Nicolas Romero) lets his primitive drawings let loose on all-over printed, angle-pocket pique on Original Penguin Earl polo shirts.
