After releasing several apparel lines for the new Red movie, One Piece has announced another fashion collab, this time with EXIEEE.
The new collection was announced via the One Piece website and Comic Natalie. There, info on the new apparel collection was released, including a preview of all the items in the collection as well as when they will be available.
This collection is made in partnership with EXIEEE. In case you’re unfamiliar, this is the streetwear brand of Japanese comedy duo EXIT which is composed of Rintaro and Daiki Kanechika.
The new One Piece apparel collab features a range of items, including t-shirts, hoodies, button-up shirts, loungewear, bottoms, caps, and even tracksuits.
For their design, the pieces in the collection are streetwear-inspired while integrating iconic imagery from the long-running series.
Regarding the collab, Rintaro said, “I've always wanted to make a track jacket and track pants setup with a full pattern, so I was very happy when it came true in the form of a One Piece collaboration!”
Meanwhile, Kanechika remarked that one of his favorite items in the collection is the skull t-shirt.
Aside from items inspired by the series as a whole, the EXIEEE collection also includes apparel with designs inspired by the new movie, One Piece Film: Red.
The One Piece x EXIEEE collection will release on August 19 in Japan via the EXIEEE online store, along with select other retailers.
For fans outside Japan, the collection can be purchased through the WorldShipping service when shopping at the Gocart portal.
One Piece is one of the most popular and longest-running manga series ever, and it started in 1997 when it began serializing in Weekly Shonen Jump.
Since then, it has grown into a massive media franchise with an over 1000-episode-long anime series, video game adaptations, spin-offs, and more. There’s even an upcoming Netflix live-action adaptation.
Currently, One Piece Film: Red (the latest movie in the franchise) is screening in Japan where it quickly became the highest-earning One Piece movie ever. The film is also set to release in select countries outside Japan in Fall 2022.
