Team Vitality are a global esports organisation who have announced a streetwear collection in collaboration with anime and manga series Hunter x Hunter.
The new crossover follows the incredible success of their Naruto collaboration back in December 2022, with the new line featuring classic Hunter x Hunter icons such as Gon on their range, which includes two t-shirts, a hoodie, cap and skateboard.
Team Vitality have shared their thoughts on the designs:
Each tee in this collection showcases Team Vitality typography tailored to complement the featured Hunter x Hunter character. The first tee, in captivating black with green stylisation, captures the essence of Gon Freecss. It prominently displays the main protagonist on the front. Moving on, the pristine white tee highlights Gon's closest friend, Killua Zoldyck, in a complementary lilac hue on both front and back.
Delving deeper into the collaboration, Team Vitality and Hunter x Hunter have also unveiled a stylish white hoodie. Shifting gears, the hoodie embraces a modern streetwear aesthetic. It features Japanese typography and the Team Vitality logo adorning the sleeves, while the back proudly displays the Hunter x Hunter squad.
Cap €29.99/Skateboard €99.99
Introducing the more innovative pieces of the collection, the collaboration showcases a cap and skateboard that truly stand out. The cap embraces simplicity, featuring the Team Vitality Bee in dark green on the front, contrasting with the hat's black canvas. While the back of the cap proudly displays the iconic Hunter x Hunter logo.
Turning our attention to the skateboard, which undoubtedly steals the spotlight. The deck, a product of HLC Skate Factory's expert craftsmanship, stands as a testament to its reputation as the world's foremost skateboard manufacturer. Having created boards for prominent names within skate culture, such as PLAN B, FLIP and SK8MAFIA, this skateboard seamlessly blends artistic flair with cutting-edge technology.
Drawing inspiration from the vibrant colours of the Hunter x Hunter logo, this skateboard exudes a bold and energetic vibe. The top half of the deck boasts a striking red arrow on a vibrant yellow background, showcasing both the Hunter x Hunter and Team Vitality Crests. As you move downward, the bottom of the deck maintains a bright yellow hue, brilliantly accentuating the presence of the red wheels. Fans can rest assured that their skateboard's creation combines precision, advanced manufacturing techniques, and a legacy of approval from professional skateboarders, guaranteeing a ride that is as exhilarating as it is eye-catching.
