BBC/Ice Cream, the brands by the famous fashion duo, Nigo and Pharrell Williams, have released some new items at the BBC/Ice Cream shop in Japan. Included in this release are some new t-shirts, sweaters, hoodies and a wallet. The wallet and a t-shirt are part of the Trump collection (Trump as in playing cards, not Donald Trump). From the new releases for February, the wallet stands out because of both the design and the mini dice that comes along with the wallet.
