Flabslab x Luke Chueh – Boba (11.21)
After plenty of sweet teasers and more recently full reveal pics, Luk e Chueh’s seriously rad Boba resin sculpture from Flabslab is about to drop. We now know that 11.21.14 is the day thanks to Luke’s tongue-in-cheek threeB flier. While there’s plenty we are still curious about including pricing and edition size, we do know that this is shaping up to be one of the releases of the year. The execution on this piece really does full justice to the concept right down to the hyper-real looking Boba cup (can’t believe I just wrote that). Mix in a wood box with swanky molded foam inserts, and this is collector nirvana.
