I’m going to address the white elephant in the room directly with this, and let’s be real here, most of the really cool collaboration lines are either men only or a really obscure unisex line which makes it really difficult to put out good designs in my opinion. As I have mentioned in previous articles relating to the XLARGE brand, there really isn’t anywhere you can go throughout Tokyo without seeing almost 1 in 5 people wearing something from the brand, but they’re all men. Their women’s line X-Girl is equally as popular but the men’s brand is the one that usually gets the cool collaborations. But not this time, as X-Girl is getting a really awesome Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045 collaboration line starting next month.
In the collaboration, there are a total of four designs being offered in a number of colorways. The designs range anywhere from TACHIKOMA in an ‘X’ pattern on the front with the word “GIRL” written under it with the logo of ‘攻殻機動隊’ running along the sleeves. Next, we have a Public Security scanner print of Motoko Kusanagi on the back with the X-Girl logo on the front, following this they’re offering a shirt with Motoko Kusanagi printed on the front, and lastly, a Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045 face tee.
Each shirt will be coming in a number of colors and frankly, I wish they were available for men because I would likely buy all of them. The designs are really well thought out and quite eye-catching. Who knows, if this collaboration goes well with X-Girl, maybe they’ll make an XLARGE collaboration as well. One could wish, right?
The Japanese X-Girl shop does not ship internationally, so if you were looking to get your hands on the X-Girl Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045 collaboration line, you’d better start looking for a proxy or reaching out to your friends, because I feel that these are going to go fairly quick.
