Last night marked the global launch of the highly anticipated collection between Oakley and Eric Koston. In an event that took place at the Harajuku O store, the world got to see the backpack, daypack and Frogskins that were briefly previewed throughout the blogosphere last month, and as expected — the product was a definite homerun with the crowd in attendance. Koston was on hand for the occasion and his presence was extremely appreciated to say the least. He graciously took the time to sign autographs and take photos with fans, while two other key components to the overall equation: Keiichi Nitta and Atiba Jefferson were also in attendance. Keiichi recently photographed Koston for a series of lifestyle oriented shots and Atiba has taken photos of Koston since the beginning of his amazing career. As an added bonus, attendees were treated to a very special and extremely limited look book featuring images from the aforementioned photographers and select VIPs were gifted with the limited edition woodgrain Koston Frogskins.
