There’s something about combining streetwear and anime together that just works. Maybe it can be traced back to Wu-Tang Clan incorporating so many elements of eastern culture into their music and aesthetic, and then maybe that just fed into the subconscious ether. No matter how the love affair came to be, one thing is for certain: it’s kind of dope as hell.
I can’t remember exactly when where I first saw it, but I’m pretty sure it was sometime last year. I came across a picture of Naruto rocking Supreme. I don’t know why it appealed to me so much – the only thing Supreme I’ve ever owned was a pizza and I never finished watching Naruto (re-started it to catch up cuz Boruto looks doooope!) – but it made me feel some type of way. Maybe it’s from all my years spent blogging and seeing all the Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, and Freshness posts popping up in my news feed combined with my deep love of anime and asian culture. Either way, I’m currently obsessed and I’m dragging you down into the vortex with me.
Apologies in advance on not having the sauce for these. Most of them are by HMN ALNS and a few others have watermarks that you can probably track down if you’re up for it because clearly my whack ass is way too lazy for that mess. Feel free to drop source links in the comments if you happen to know who made any of these.
Pretty awesome, right? Do us a solid and share this post around your social media spots, yeah? It’d mean a lot to us and would score you some decent karma points. Win-win!
