If you thought that you might be able to give your wallet a little break after that fantastic fashion collaboration between Nintendo and Uniqlo that recently took place, you may want to think again. Just announced today, this latest crossover between one of the world’s most beloved video game companies, alongside one of its most recognizable characters, will be taking place with long-running North American luggage company LeSportsac. The collaboration contains some seriously eye-catching flare to it, and I’ve totally fallen head over heals for it as an enthusiast of all things “gaming fashion”. I mean, just take a look at this collection, it’s absolutely incredible:
The prominence given to the power ups on the backpack and the tote bag prove to be definitive eye-catchers in my own personal taste. It’s hard to recommend too many fashion brands that effectively combine the passion with the looks, so I’m happy to see such attention given towards making this a visage that works. Coming straight from the official announcement, you can see why the two companies are eager to provide such a loud, yet still-wearable look:
The collaboration features two unique designs created exclusively for the LeSportsac X Nintendo collection. Power-Up Burst is a colorful homage to Mario’s iconic power-up items and classic foes, including Fire Flowers, Super Mushrooms, 1-Up Mushrooms, Super Stars, coins, Goombas and Koopas. The Mario Travel print portrays playful Mushroom Kingdom-inspired travel memorabilia, such as luggage tags, passport stamps and postcards on a bright red background.
If you want to get your hands on the goods before anyone else the world over, the bags will be available in Japan starting July 19. Which piece in particular is screaming for your hard-earned coin, adventurers?
