Japanese fashion brand glamb have announced a new collaborative collection of clothing for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure based on the first 5 parts of the franchise.
glamb started in 2003 as a distinct brand emulating luxury American-style grunge aesthetics into their clothing designs and stores that have made them a success. They’re also no strangers to working with Japanese brands in collaboration, having previously adapted the likes of Evangelion into fashionable clothing collections that capture the series and brand’s unique style. Their latest collaborative collection does exactly that, with glamb bringing parts 1-5 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure to life through a series of knitted jumpers, shirts and rugged jeans.
The variety on offer really captures the differing tones of each part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure franchise. Whether you’re after Bruno Bucciarati’s gaudy jersey or a sophisticated purple shirt based on Killer Queen, there’s a surprising level of variety beyond character graphics on otherwise-plain designs that truly attempt to incorporate the franchise into the brand’s style. Even when shirts lean further into this style, as seen with the Lisa Lisa t-shirt, it’s more rugged in style thanks to the hand-drawn art that helps it to stand out.
Glamb’s clothing typically isn’t cheap and this JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure collaboration is no different. T-shirts will run you 7,590 yen and prices rise sharply from there. The jeans on offer in this collection will cost just shy of 20,000 yen, as will the Killer Queen shirt. The most expensive item, Bruno Bucciarati’s stand jacket, will set you back 36,300 yen. Still, if you can get a hold of it, it could probably fit well in any wardrobe.
Pre-orders for the entire JoJo’s glamb collaboration are now open on the brand’s official website.
