A couple of fun things to go over...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

First up, a new collaboration! This time the collaboration is with popular men's streetwear Vanquish.

They will have a number of items that will be sold at:
Vanquish Magnet by Shibuya109
Vanquish Shinsaibashi BigStep
Vanquish Online

Vanquish Online ships worldwide for those who want to import.

All the items will be released on February 14th.



One of the pieces of key art they were showing were Taichi and Agumon, from the Last Evolution Kizuna teaser art, with Taichi in Vanquish clothes, in front of the Shibuya109 shopping center.

They also showed off a similar shot of Yamato and Gabumon from the front, with Yamato in Vanquish gear also (the art looks familiar, but off the top of my head I don't recall where it's from, if we've seen it before...) and a similar shot of Agumon with a real person wearing the same jacket.


And Vanquish, which talks about being 'born' in Shibuya, wouldn't quite properly be Shibuya without two more Digimon cameoing...

Pumpmon and Gotsumon!

I find it funny that most of the offerings from that Digimon x Vanquish collaboration are clothing items with just one of these two pics just slapped on the front of them.

For t-shirts and hoodies that range between $65-$100 US, you would expect a little effort put into them. Then again, part of me is not surprised because other "trendy, streetwear" brands have taken this laid-back approach before.

I've seen better looking unlicensed shirts from those independent artists you would see on those pop-culture t-shirt online shops.


Also.......

Another funny thing about this is that the only clothing item Taichi and Yamato are seen wearing in those key art pieces is one of those souvenir-style jackets that Vanquish currently sells as part of their regular collection. Now that is currently being sold at a whopping 24,200 yen (about $220 US) though there is a chance in the future that this can go on sale for as much as half off.

(the art looks familiar, but off the top of my head I don't recall where it's from, if we've seen it before...)
I think they used the same art that was used to promote Kizuna but with the jacket and Shibuya added in the background.

.......

For some reason I'm reminded of that questionable art used in that Digimon x Super Groupies collaboration.




And Vanquish, which talks about being 'born' in Shibuya, wouldn't quite properly be Shibuya without two more Digimon cameoing...

Pumpmon and Gotsumon!
And the only effort that was put into this collab' was something you couldn't buy after all.

lol. Thank God neither of our characters are wearing that real dude’s entire outfit. Are those Elvis pants and high heels all one piece of clothing? Agumon’s expression seems fitting.
