TATRAS, in design collaboration with Paris-based graffiti tagger and artist André Saraiva, curates a capsule collection to paint over the streetwear culture by merging graffiti’s favorite figure, Mr. A into the fabrics of TATRAS.
TATRAS makes way in graffiti culture with its collaboration with a tagger, André Saraiva featuring his iconic character, MR. A.
TATRAS curates a capsule collection with Paris-based graffiti artist, André Saraiva.
His signature character, the now iconic MR. A has been painted over 300,000 times across 6 continents. André introduced the cheerful, top-hatted stick figure with a funny round face that boasts a huge smile and a wink to the streets.
Fueling André’s core mantra “Once graffiti is on the wall, it belongs to everyone”. Painting the town with his Mr. A character, André traveled the world, and he found his way back home by following the graffiti he had tagged that night.
André carries over his famous graffiti tag, the long-legged Mr. A from murals to merchandise with TATRAS that can be seen embossed on TATRAS apparel or reimagined as a rectangular for posters.
The eight-piece capsule collection includes down jackets with Mr. A patch, a stadium jacket with vegan leather sleeves and Mr. A snap button, a tracksuit setup, and more. All items are available in 2 colors, the TATRAS 22AW season color “blue” and urban “black”. The collaborative collection also sees a line of goods, only available in Japan, including a bowling bowl, bowling pin, neon sign, and posters.
With its whimsical expression, Mr. A spreads smiles and happiness as André 's alter-ego. Portraying the idea of "to be happy with TATRAS clothes, “TATRAS again presents a joyful experience, this collaboration encapsulates the positive message TATRAS and André wish to deliver to the world.
