Streetwear and sneaker retailer BAIT has an extensive history of collaborating with various brands and franchises, including internationally adored anime series. A frequent entry in this collaborative catalog is with Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy. Recently, this partnership has featured a project that included skate decks, toys, tees and two sneakers with Reebok. Now, BAIT celebrates the franchise with a denim capsule that features a jacket, jeans, baseball jersey, bucket hat and tote bag. Additional pieces that stray away from a denim makeup include a fleece hoodie, T-shirt and 18 inch figure.
Looking closer at the collection, the denim pieces all feature mechanical drawings and blueprints printed on a premium denim throughout. With the blue hoodie and white tee, a collaborative rectangular logo is featured front and center on both pieces while a thoroughly detailed anatomical specification sheet of Astro Boy lands on the back. Lastly, the 18 inch figure features Astro Boy in the TADA pose wearing a green iridescent outfit.
Release for BAIT’s latest Astro Boy capsule is set to take place September 24 via all BAIT US stores and its website. The figure is limited to a quantity of only 200 made.
