Pokemon have some of the most recognizable designs in the anime and video game market, so this latest collaboration with streetwear designer Hiroshi Fujiwara takes the best of those designs and makes the even cooler.
Dubbed the Thunderbolt Project, the collaboration with Fujiwara features a collection releasing into 2019 "and beyond."
Pokemon is teaming with streetwear mogul Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment Design with a line of minimalist Poke-goods. Although the details of the line are currently scarce, the first of which is scheduled to drop during Hypefest in New York October 6 and 7.
The official Instagram page for the collaboration features the logo for the project, which incorporates both a Pikachu silhouette along with a lightning bolt from Fujiwara's logo for Fragment Design. There are some hits at the pieces coming in the collection, with the most stand out piece being a gray Mew with the same lightning bolt.
With as many Pokemon out there as there are, the line has the potential to be filled with all sorts of cute and cool looks that fans will surely want to keep an eye on as this mysterious collaboration reveals itself more in the coming weeks.0comments
