Following the success of their first collab with the famous Japanese series, Naruto, Team Liquid has announced the release of a second apparel collection, entirely based on one of the series’ most famous clans, the Akatsuki.
Shrouded in red clouds and shadow, this new limited edition drop by the North American org is set to feature 20 pieces of high-quality, fully custom streetwear and accessories emblazoned with Akatsuki thematic.
According to Travis Anderson, Global VP of Apparel and Commerce at Team Liquid, “for our sophomore Liquid x Naruto drop, we were attracted to the energy of Akatsuki, these iconic antagonists who shaped the series’ narrative.”
The Liquid x Naruto Akatsuki collection’s standouts include pieces that will showcase some of the series villains amid TL iconography, like the Tsukoyomi Itachi packable tech jacket, Akatsuki Cloud chenille pullover hoodie and the Zetsu long sleeve.
“Our pieces meld the roguish, independent spirit of Akatsuki with Team Liquid’s competitive drive, resulting in a more natural collaboration than the visual contrast of red clouds and blue horses might suggest,” added Travis Anderson.
As you can see above, Team Liquid also decided to form its own powerful collective with other top-tier influencers and content creators, featuring King Vader, Sonii, Taya Miller, Atikhun, Hungrybox, Ovilee May and more, to celebrate the release of this clothing capsule.
“We’re very proud of this collection, and we know that fans across esports, anime and gaming will love it too,” concluded Anderson.
The entire Liquid x Naruto Akatsuki collection will be available in the United States, Canada and Europe starting Friday, October 29 at 12 pm PT / 9 pm CEST.
