Many brands have collaborated with Naruto, but none looks as suave as the new collaboration between LIBERE and Naruto. There is just something about seeing the characters in the high-fashion brand’s clothing that pushes the collaboration to the next level.
LIBERE had the following to say about their upcoming collaboration with the legendary anime series:
The theme of the collection is ‘LIBERE FOR NARUTO’ – a series of garments created around the unique points of each character, with the concept of characters of the Naruto world wearing the LIBERE clothing line.
Known for its style bringing together diverse elements, in this collection LIBERE suggests a new ‘street ninja style.’ By making liberal use of the clan marks and colorings of six major characters: Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi, Shikamaru, and Itachi, the collection achieves a strong affinity with the characters. The collection includes minute details such as straps, pockets, and zippers, featuring high-function reflective surfaces as well as tactical jackets and pants that epitomize ninja fashion. Each item includes extras manufactured especially for the collection, such as tags, plastic bags, and dust covers.
Additionally, an original art lookbook has been created by Pierrot, the animation studio that brought to life the anime Naruto: Shippuuden, depicting the characters in their everyday attire to further link anime and reality within the collection.
The collaboration features a plethora of different items that you can choose from, ranging from hats to t-shirts, jackets, and more. With LIBERE being a high-fashion brand, you can expect the prices to reflect as well with shirts ranging from $91 for shirts, $200 for jackets, and $70 for hats.
If you’re interested in checking out the items for yourself, you can do so at the LIBERE official shop, here. If you’re interested in purchasing any of the items, you can do so easily as LIBERE ships internationally. However, Japanese sizing is different, so there might be some discrepancies there. The pre-order period for the items ends on 28 April 2021, so if you’re looking to get something, it might be a good idea to jump on that. Orders are expected to start shipping after Golden Week in Japan.
