GAKU and Engineered Garments collaborate to create a unique bandana following the IVY style, the concept for spring/summer 2024. The design features a modern twist and a nostalgic atmosphere.  

Adorned with novelty icons reminiscent of the necktie pattern from Chipp, a long-established store in New York, the bandana design is inspired by student life at a fictional university, which is also the concept for this time. It depicts a day at the Long Island campus in New York.  

The concept behind the Type Bandana is inspired by the Novelties Wall Pennants sold at Co-Op stores. The T-shirt designs feature slogans like "Absurdist" and "Satirical," inspired by college humor magazines from the 1950s and 60s, such as Harvard Lampoon, The Brown Jug, Yale Record, and an 80s Thrasher magazine.
