Fashion and video games were once unlikely bedfellows, but that has certainly changed over the last decade as designers and brands increasingly look to video games for inspiration. Nevertheless, when we saw this recent collab between the designer Yohji Yamamoto and the clothing brand Supreme, featuring Tekken 2, we couldn't help but be a bit taken aback by how random it was.
Without any real explanation as to why, the Fall 2022 collection features bomber jackets, puffer parkas, sweaters, t-shirts, and even skateboards with characters from the Namco fighting game. There's even a shirt that has pretty much every character portrait emblazoned across it, from Kuma the fighting bear to the boxing dinosaur Alex.
Apparently this collection marks the second collaboration between Yamamoto and Supreme, with the pair having previously joined forces in Fall 2020. That collection, however, didn't feature any other fighting game characters, to our eternal disappointment.
According to the Supreme website, this most recent range will be released on September 22nd online. It will then be made available in Japan and in select Yohji Yamamoto stores on the 24th September. So if you're looking for a way to tell everyone in the room about how much you love a PlayStation fighting game from 1996, boy, do we have the collection for you!
