Japanese apparel brand, earth Japan Label had previously announced their collaboration with Kuroko's Basketball at the end of August and the special logo looked promising enough to get fans excited. Now, the Earth Japan Label official Twitter account has posted the images of the collaboration items for the first time, so let's take a look!
The earth x Kuroko's Basketball collaboration logo that was released last month.
A special illustration of Kuroko, Kagami and Tetsuya 2 gou in a nature setting for the collaboration was also released today.
The image of the line-up released earlier today. Unfortunately, no larger images are available at this time.
From top left:
Number Dot Onepiece
A dress with a basketball and number images as a dot pattern wiith a lace collar and a belt. It comes in two colors for the Kuroko & Kagami version and Kiseki (Kise, Midorima and Aomine) version, I am guessing Navy for Kuroko and Dark Green for Kiseki for 5,900 yen each.
School Set (A printed top and a tulle skirt)
A set of a collared shirt and a skirt in the character's uniform color (note: that's what it says on the official site, but I think they mean the character's image color since no one wears a Yellow uniform in the anime). The print on the top is inspired by each character. The tulle skirt has a lace trim with a basketball and a star pattern for 7.990 yen and comes in 4 different colors (Ivory, Navy, Yellow, Black).
Jaguared School Cardigan
A knit cardigan with deformed KuroBasu characters. This long cardigan is a signature design of the Japan label and it comes in 2 designs. The design of Kuroko & Kagami comes in Ivory and Navy color, the Kiseki (Kise, Midorima and Aomine) version comes in Beige and Gray for 5,995 yen each.
Number Dot Backpack
This unisex backpack has a dot pattern featuring the uniform numbers of KuroBasu characters and basketballs for 5,995 yen in Beige or Black.
Ribbon & Star Motif Necklace
The necklace with the character's initials and the uniform number engraved behind the ribbon and a Swarovski crystal in their image colors (Sax/Red/Yellow/Green/Navy) for 1,995 yen. (I'm guessing this will sell out.)
Tesyuya 2GO Charm
Tetsuya 2gou with a modified face for the collaboration for 2,100 yen. (Wait, a different face with no uniform? Is it even Tetsuya 2go?)
Character Hand Towels
A hand towel with the collaboration logo in the character's image color (Sax/Red/Yellow/Green/Navy) for 1,050 yen.
Online pre-orders open at midnight of Friday, September 6th, Japan time on their special EC site. There is no mention of international shipping which probably means that they don't offer it, unfortunately. Would you buy it if it was available? This is a pretty different take on character merchandising since there are no huge logos or anime characters slapped on the items, so do you think it'll be successful?
