The Retrospect Book proudly features collaborations between CLOT & Disney and 2 great artists, including DRx’s Vintage Collection that boasts a collection of rare Disney collectables from the 1940s – 1980s. DRx’s collection is a result of much searching and visiting markets and collectors around the world for collectables, which he then reworked and modified into brand new
creations. In collaboration with Japanese artist Madsaki, Disney’s classic characters were translated with his acclaimed spatial awareness and illustrative concepts, bringing forth a strong
sense of street style and Madsaki’s utmost respect for Disney.
Gathering world-renowned labels, including Medicom Toy、SSUR、PAM、84/74 lab、Bounty Hunter、 PHANTACi, CLOT & Disney also bring together their collection of limited edition crossover creations in this publication.

Besides its exclusive content, the Retrospect Book itself is a work of art. With continuous efforts in design and production by Edison Chen and his team, 《CLOT & Disney：Man Is In The Forest》Retrospect Book is the product of a full year of hard work. “Man Is In The Forest” traces back to the days when Disney’s animated classic Bambi was in creation when it was used
as a code about Walt Disney’s diligenceat the studio. CLOT & Disney used this quote as a starting point of the collaboration, paying respect to the famous founder. This collector’s edition book can also be seen as the collective essence of CLOT and Disney’s extended collaboration, dedicated as a token of appreciation to all loyal supporters.
