Even though the formal announcement of Space Jam 2 zapped the marquee Looney Tunes characters back into the news cycle, it’s the hapless Wile E. Coyote who is having the biggest cultural moment. In a high fashion and streetwear landscape obsessed with cartoons, Coyote is the centerpiece of Raf Simons's latest collection for Calvin Klein—a particularly choice $1,400 leather tote sold out initially and only recently got restocked.
That’s not all, folks. A few weeks back, affordable streetwear heavyweights the Hundreds made Coyote the centerpiece of their latest drop, featuring him and his eternal foil, the Roadrunner, on a line of bombers and hoodies. Lastly, a new movie, Coyote vs. Acme (which is as tantalizing a title as I’ve ever heard tbh) is also in development at Warner Brothers.
