88rising x Hajime Sorayama | Fashion Collaboration

by Hannah Jackson

Legendary lifestyle brand 88rising has joined forces with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama to create a line of t-shirts, hoodies, and crewnecks, now available on 88NIGHTMARKET.com. 88rising released a limited amount of their collaboration with Sorayama at their Head in the Clouds festival in August. Though the festival may be over, the celebration of Sorayama’s super-realism aesthetic is only beginning. The collaboration is bolstered by audio and visual projects that will be accompanied by the release of the album Head In The Clouds II, slated for release later this year.

Though the collaboration only offers limited merchandise now, additional releases will carry on throughout the year to support the upcoming album, and will feature a wider range of clothing including outerwear, knitwear, and accessories.

“Working with 88rising and seeing them reinterpret my work has been inspiring and refreshing. I love their creative energy and collaborating on new artwork specifically for their Head in the Clouds II album has been a real joy,” Sorayama said of working with 88rising. “It’s nice to see that my robots can surf!” he added as a nod to his famous Sexy Robot series.
