As the lunar new year creeps in with the mighty dragon, brands are slowly pushing out their capsules and Tokyo-based streetwear label BlackEyePatch has caught our eyes with their dragon-inspired threads.
The brand releases various products such as sweatshirts, t-shirts, gold chains, earrings, jackets, hoodies and a car freshener. As for the designs, BlackEyePatch made sure it was adorned with the dragon in most of these pieces.
Earlier this year (last week, to be precise) the brand had collaborated with a Seoul-based fashion brand, thisisneverthat and produced a hoodie that saw a fusion between the two logos in an embroidered and stamped print. This co-branded collab was a huge success as the hoodies are all sold out.
For this capsule, BlackEyePatch carried over the "取扱注意" aka “handle with care” message onto this capsule, which was used in their previous collab with thisisneverthat.
You’ll be able to see this messaging on most of the collection including their accessories such as the gold plated pendant (silver 925), earrings and air freshener — unfortunately, both items are currently all sold out.
