It’s undeniable that numerous aspects of Japanese pop culture are creeping into the global fashion scene at this point; but following an announcement made today that we can expect an Akira x Supreme collection later this month, that fact was only further proven. Lightly detailed today during a talk panel at PARCO Shibuya, the tight-lipped Katsuhiro Otomo was kind enough to reveal that collaboration was in the works and is set to receive an announcement at some point mid-October.
The collection will be the street fashion giant’s latest foray into the world of anime-related clothing, following a late-2015 collaboration with Toshio Maeda. During the talk session, Otomo revealed that he had been approached numerous times in the past by Supreme for a co-branded collection, though had turned them down every time until now.
With an official announcement supposedly just around the corner, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on any news regarding the collection. Think you’ll be joining the lines to get your hands on the collection? I’m looking forward to checking it all out when an official announcement is shared in the coming days.
