Globeride’s D-VEC continues its offerings of high-tech wear with a utilitarian bent in its latest collaboration with ALMOSTBLACK, featuring a series of outerwear, tops, bottoms, and accessories all finished in black.
The collaboration follows the theme of fusing fishing functions with fashion, in which the majority of the apparel items are made waterproof with GORE-TEX INFINIUM. Leading the lineup are outerwear from the shell jacket for ¥85,800 JPY (approximately $750 USD), the shirt jacket for ¥46,200 JPY (approximately $400 USD), to the vest for ¥41,800 JPY (approximately $360 USD).
The standout of the range is the six-pocket pants with mesh lining for ¥36,200 JPY (approximately $315 USD), followed by the bucket hat with a drawcord at the back of the head for ¥11,000 JPY (approximately $95 USD). Rounding off the collection are essentials, including short- and long-sleeved T-shirts, which see a football T-shirt silhouette and pants with an elasticated waistband, priced at ¥13,200, ¥16,500, and ¥30,800 JPY (approximately $115, $140 and $270 USD), respectively.
The D-VEC x ALMOSTBLACK collaboration collection will be released on January 27 at select stores nationwide in Japan.
