Solo x Kenkoy Collection and Model Search
local brand SOLO has done it again. it has come out with its 2nd installment of the well-loved PINOY CARTOONIST MEMORABILIA SERIES. this time it features KENKOY, the greatest work of the father of philippine cartoons, tony velasquez.
velasquez created kenkoy (a.k.a francisco harabas) in 1929. as described by velasquez himself, kenkoy was “always pusturyoso”. he was a debonair and his trademark fashion sense was western influenced: decked in suspenders, charol shoes, a double-breasted suit, baggy pants, a sailor hat, and a slicked back hairstyle. kenkoy’s popularity was due in part to its wit and humor, as well as his antics, colonial way of thinking, and “carabao-english”.
the entire kenkoy collection will be available starting september.
