We are officially two weeks out from the most anticipated anime movie release in quite possibly ever with the impending release of EVANGELION 3.0+1.0, and that means that we will start to see even more tie-up products and collaboration events leading up to the opening of the movie. The newest of those collaborations is none other than with Anna Sui. The American high fashion brand has several Evangelion items that they will release, starting tomorrow 13 January 2021.
Let’s take a look at what the brand will be offering.
The Anna Sui x EVANGELION collaboration will feature 12 items, including T-shirts, bags, wallets, towels, handkerchiefs, and pouches. They will combine ANNA SUI’s brand motifs, such as butterflies and roses, with motifs of UNIT-01 and the angels, to create original designs that are full of ANNA SUI’s character. This is a special collection that fuses the world of Evangelion with the world of ANNA SUI. There are even products based on Unit-02 as well.
Anna Sui is a women’s brand, and it is a nice change to see something like this. There are plenty of female anime fans in the world, and I’m sure many of them are also EVANGELION fans. Usually, when you see high-fashion brands doing collaborations with anime IPs, they’re usually confined to the male line of clothing and accessories. This is definitely a nice change of pace.
The Anna Sui x EVANGELION collaboration launches tomorrow 13 January 2021 and will be available as supplies last. If you’re looking to get your hands on them, you can do so at the Premium Bandai web store and the Anna Sui Japan web store. The items hit the physical Anna Sui stores at the beginning of February. There is still no word on if or when these items will reach international shores, so if you’re looking to get your hands on them, it’s looking like it would be a good idea to hit up a friend in Japan or find a proxy to get them for you.
