GU Taps KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS For 'Death Stranding' Collection
A range of cyberpunk-themed apparel and carrying options.
Following the release of a Demon Slayer collaboration earlier this year, UNIQLO‘s sister brand GU has tapped KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS led by legendary video game creator Hideo Kojima for a special collection of co-branded apparel and accessories for the colder months ahead.
The series is an ode to Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding game —which has just confirmed a sequel— featuring artwork from KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS art director Yoji Shinkawa, as well as game-inspired “EXTRA-VEHICULAR CREATIVE ACTIVITY suit” and “FROM SAPIENS TO LUDENS” text. Collaborative pieces appear in olive green, sail white, and black incorporating nylon shirt jackets, paneled crewneck sweatshirts, sweatsuit sets, full-zip hoodies, and pullover hoodies. Accompanying accessories include black quilted tote bags and hard-shell game pouches.
The limited collection ranges from ¥2,290 to ¥3,990 JPY (approximately $21 to $31 USD) and will be on sale at GU’s website and physical stores September 27.
