Arguably one of the most iconic and commercially-successful IPs in Japan – heck, the entire world – is none other than One Piece. The love for the long-running manga and anime series by Eichiro Oda is still going strong, over 20 years since its release, and it doesn’t look like the hype is about to end any time soon, especially since a live-action Netflix series has been ordered.
The latest piece of One Piece merch comes in the form of a new collab with Italian sportswear brand Kappa, coming soon.
The One Piece x Kappa collection comprises a slew of T-shirts and hoodies, most of which sport Kappa’s signature “Omni” logo.
But instead of a standard silhouette of a man and woman leaning against each other, the logo features Luffy leaning against the likes of Zoro, Nami, Sanji, Ace or Shanks.
One design even features the iconic “To Be Continued” still that appears after the end of every anime episode.
The collection will be released on 19 March 2020 at the Kappa Japan online store, and One Piece Mugiwara stores. T-shirts will retail for ¥5,940 (US$55.66), while hoodies will retail from ¥9,350 (US$87.62) onwards.
