BAIT has teamed up with the fighting video game franchise Street Fighter for a “KO” capsule collection, as well as Redbull Japan, ahead of the Redbull Kumite Japan 2019 expo. 

The collaboration with Redbull Japan sees the limited release of a Street Fighter shirt and coach jacket that will be exclusive to professional players and staff members at this weekend’s Aichi Sky Expo. The coach jacket comes in two colors — black and red — with both sporting traditional Kanji graphics, gaming motifs and the phrase “Kumite,” which refers to one of the three main sections of formal karate training.

BAIT’s general release “KO” collaboration with Street Fighter delivers short sleeve and long sleeve T-shirts, hoodies and coach jackets. The coach jackets are releasing in both camouflage and cream iterations, with both featuring a large graphic on the rear depicting the Street Fighter character Akuma. The Boss character is joined by BAIT and Street Fighter branding in the game’s classic colorway, while “KO” lettering graces the arms in red.

Rounding out the capsule is a selection of T-shirts, with the long sleeves depicting Akuma and Ryushort together. Hoodies and short sleeves reimagine the two in a more traditional artistic approach. Take a look at the BAIT x Redbull x Kumite x Street Fighter “KO” capsule collection in the gallery above, and pick up everything now from BAIT Shibuya Parco, BAIT Osaka Minami and via BAIT’s Japanese webstore. The collection will release at all 10 BAIT USA chapter stores and on the BAIT USA website on December 20.
