GU has tapped Evangelion for a brand new Spring/Summer 2020 capsule. Following its collaboration with SOPH., the Japanese label has channeled retro-futuristic graphics from the cult anime this time around.
The capsule spans a series of graphic T-shirts, short-sleeve button-ups and half-sleeve hoodies, emblazoned with Evangelion imagery. One noteworthy piece is a black T-shirt with a print depicting a profile scan of various Angels from the show. “Evangelion” branding is placed at the very top of the image, followed by a row of headshots of four Angels, yellow hazard stripes, Japanese kanji and thinly sketched outlines of the creatures over a fluorescent grid. Another highlight is a short-sleeve button-up that’s been detailed with the words “DON’T RUN AWAY.” The phrase is diagonally placed throughout the shirt, complemented by tonal buttons and a small Angel motif at the upper left chest. Other pieces like the “EVA-02” and logo tees as well as the half-sleeve hoodies round up the concise assemblage.
The Evangelion x GU SS20 capsule is currently available on GU’s website, ranging from $12 – $23 USD.
