The Fashion World is Obsessing Over Planet Kosmos

Ok so if you’ve been sleeping all day, wake up! The fashion execs and people of the internet have spoken, Planet Kosmos is here! Ok so if you’re not familiar with what Planet Kosmos is, it’s actually a font, I know I know kind of boring right? Well, I had to make this story sort of exciting lol, but nonetheless, Planet Kosmos font is apparently the font of 2017 street wear fashion and it has kind of a cool story around it.

Planet Kosmos is here!

Ok so if you’re not familiar with what Planet Kosmos is, it’s actually a font, I know I know kind of boring right? Well, I had to make this story sort of exciting lol, but nonetheless, Planet Kosmos old-english-takes-backseat-up-and-coming-fashion-font-planet-calabasas-1font is apparently the font of 2017 street wear fashion and it has kind of a cool story around it. According to an article today in Racked, Kanye West, and Raf Simons—who have both used Planet Kosmos in recent designs—reached out to the font’s creator in order to license it for commercial use. Specifically, on a shirt from Raf’s spring 2017 collection and on Ye’s infamous, unreleased “Calabasas” sweatpants. What’s probably even more cooler is the fact that West and Simons both want to give the creator of the dope font credit as well, a Danish graphic designer named Mads Rydahl, created Planet Kosmos in 1996 after he imagined what it would look like on, as he told Racked, “a super fast electric motorcycle from a manga-like next millennium.” However, the coolness doesn’t stop there because all Rydahl wants in return is a “Compact Disc with something you love or have created yourself.” He told Simons Apparently he has received art projects, reggae albums, and, from Simons, a disc with actual designs on it. Simons will also be sending him a couple of shirts once they come out. Pretty cool right? So definitely be on the look out for this dope collab, I know that this story may not be the “Most” interesting of topics (especially since the font is free), but given the madness of this election day, it’s a nice little story to take your mind off things. Your dope for reading.
