TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new limited collection teaming up Japanese high-end streetwear brand LIBERE and Naruto is scheduled for release in May.
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 6 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 original art poster will be given out as a present to those who purchase the collaboration products.
All products will receive an advanced release at the LIBERE official online store and shops carrying LIBERE products from April 22. (World shipping)
An event commemorating the release of the collection is planned to be held in Tokyo in mid-May. *There is a possibility of change or cancellation depending on the circumstances. (For detailed event information, please visit the official website or Instagram account.)
Centered on designs from the creative team Maverick Creative, LIBERE realizes designs mixing diverse styles ranging from high-end street to military/work and sports, then adding unique details to achieve a totally unique look. The brand offers the hottest styles that can be found nowhere else.
