The French existentialists

Caperino&Peperone (best know as Cap&Pep), are the brainchild of Kuntzel+Deygas, the French creative duo with a flair for illustration, design, animation, film, and everything in between. Self-confessed ‘existentialist dogs’, Cap&Pep would be the perfect guests at any dinner party; witty and mischievous, they can talk about anything, live to tell the stories, and even name-drop.

Cap&Pep are ingrained in pop culture thanks to their prolific long-term partnerships with legendary store Colette and Vogue Nippon. Kuntzel+Deygas define their approach to product collaborations as the ‘art of take over’ — they strive to leave Cap&Pep’s mark on an existing and defined product. Cap&Pep x Medicom Toys, Cap&Pep x Lacoste or Cap&Pep x Baccarat are some examples of their ‘take overs’.

Cap+Pep are often inked and stamped on the page (with Japanese black ink) just like animated wood type. An indeed, there is something very typographic about these two characters (no pun intended), mostly due to Kuntzel+Deygas’s clever use of negative space and the simplicity and confidence of limiting themselves to black and white. We just hope one day they will become a complete alphabet.

ISSUE SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
