BAIT is no stranger to collaborations, including those in the realm of anime and manga. Some capsules they have done in the past include Bleach, Astro Boy, and Initial D. As a follow up to their streak of anime and manga-inspired capsules, BAIT has a new collaboration–this time featuring hit anime One Piece. The collection dropped last April 17, and we love the execution on this–especially since all of the pieces here are recycled and made from regenerative cotton, on top of having a vintage fit.
The apparel selection includes hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts, and shirts featuring various characters from the One Piece Straw Hat Crew. The graphics are very classy, so we feel it is going to appeal to an audience outside One Piece fans, while still capturing the essence of the hit Japanese anime.
The black hoodie featuring the Straw Hat Crew rocks a really eye-catching graphic on the back, while the front is relatively plain, making it very wearable—while still getting its graphic fix. There is also a white t-shirt version of the design with the same layout. It is the perfect way of saying: casual in front, party in the back!
On the other hand, the collection’s Luffy graphics may appeal to a more youthful audience than the prior. Aside from orange, the Luffy graphic tee is also available in black.
BAIT x One Piece Collaboration price
While there’s no word if you can cop them locally (or if you can still cop them online), the pieces are priced at $40(~Php 2k) for the tee and $80(~Php 3.9k) for the hoodie. Right now, you best chance in copping the pieces is through the resell market, which means you will most likely be paying higher than retail.
Speaking of One Piece collabs, Uniqlo UT also has its own One Piece collection.
