tokidoki for LeSportsac lovers old and new lined up at the LeSportsac boutique in Ala Moana Center and at the LeSportsac shop in DFS Galleria to chat with Legno about the criminally cute and imaginative world of tokidoki. Fans received signed special limited edition posters featuring one of collection’s prints and Palette, a never before seen character created by Legno exclusively for the collection. With each purchase, shoppers received fun signature tokidoki temporary tattoo booklets and everyone had the opportunity to take a few selfies with a life-sized statue of Palette. Shoppers at DFS Galleria even got to take home custom Palette shaped fans because Hawaii is just too wonderfully warm!

In Japan, the LeSportsac Omotesando store was transformed into a huge tokidoki pop-up store. Legno’s world and the new collection were visually brought to life with the integration of his most signature tokidoki products. tokidoki items were also available for purchase at the LeSportsac Ginza store along with the tokidoki for LeSportsac collection. Legno met with fans at both locations for photos and custom signings.

Legno then journeyed on to Taiwan where he hosted a LeSportsac pop-up shop at one of the country’s premier department stores. The life-sized Palette statue made another appearance (the only one in Asia) and giant palette heads and fans were given away to lucky shoppers.

In Singapore, Legno met with VIPs and press to present the collection. The country’s most influential bloggers clamored to take photos with the artist and Legno was kind enough to pose for fans and do impromptu signings.

Legno finally returned stateside to his home base, Los Angeles, and made his way to the last stop of his tour, LeSportsac Santa Monica Place. Locals began a line even before the store opened to meet with Legno. The celebration included a DJ, incredible tokidoki gifts for shoppers, and even more photos and signings. Thankfully Legno made it home and was able to take a break from all of his autographing to go back to drawing more of the amazing world of tokidoki.
