Hot on the heels of the Japanese brand’s Vans partnership with tattoo legend Mr. Cartoon, NEIGHBORHOOD has launched another collaborative collection. This time, the streetwear-adjacent label has joined with self-described “anti-otaku” artist Jun Inagara for a concise collection of manga-indebted artwork.

Inagawa has provided illustrations for adidas, AWGE, Smokepurpp and Juice WRLD and even realized a handful of exhibitions, including last year’s Magical Girl DESTROYERS (Moe). The 21-year-old’s oeuvre focuses on scribbled manga-style characters, often inspired by magical girls and various aspects of youth culture, including skating, hip-hop and streetwear.

NEIGHBORHOOD enlisted Inagawa for a six-piece collection, with a healthy variety of colors to mix things up. Three tees feature Inagawa’s recognizable touches, including a hand-drawn anarchy symbol, the aforementioned magical girl imagery and his Otaku Army helmet. Bold NEIGHBORHOOD text and slogans (“THIS MAGICAL GIRL KILLS FASCISTS”) accompany the sketches and Inagawa’s signature. The art also graces matching sets of badges, stickers and a patch.

The Jun Inagawa items will be available on NEIGHBORHOOD’s website June 20.

Recently, NEIGHBORHOOD has issued a slew of collaborative goods, including Casetify phone cases, LINC ORIGINAL MAKERS candles, Shaka sandals and graphic Gramicci wearables.
