Japanese rapper kZm has linked up with events group PARTY to hold a virtual live set dubbed “VIRTUAL DISTORTION.” Both VERDY, who worked on kZm’s previous merch, and Youth Quake have signed on to develop the upcoming event’s merch.
The capsule includes four T-shirts, a hat, a crewneck sweater and a keychain. Featuring colorways of blue, black and white, the first three graphic tees are emblazoned with graphics created by both VERDY and Youth Quake. “But She Cries,” a nod to kZm’s single, is placed across the front chest, while a circular “De-void*” motif appears at the back — the same prints are repeated across the crewneck and hat. Rounding up the lineup is a T-shirt featuring digital artwork in bright neon and a blue heart-shaped key chain stamped with “But She Cries” and “Girls Don’t Cry.”
The first drop of kZm’s VERDY and Youth Quake-designed “VIRTUAL DISTORTION” capsule will be available starting July 31, exclusively in Japan on the event’s dedicated app “kZm LIVE by VARP” — prices have yet to be confirmed.
