Everyone’s already posted about the ‘LeSportsac x Nintendo’ goods coming to Japan in July (and the Western world this Fall); basically, it’s another cross promotional deal for Nintendo to rake in cash and good will. But the one thing nobody seems to have posted are big pics of the designs. There’s a lot of little details and I wanted a closer look.
Fortunately, LeSportsac put out some gigantic images which you can check out, in full, in the gallery at the bottom of the page. If that’s too much bandwidth for you, here are a few smaller sized closeups and some of the original press release with the details.
PRESS RELEASE COPY: REDMOND, Wash., June 21, 2017 – Holding a treasured place in the hearts of millions, Mario’s adventures have brought him to many strange places, including the far corners of the Mushroom Kingdom and galaxies beyond. Working with Nintendo, LeSportsac took Mario’s passion for exploration and translated it into the brand’s best-selling, on-the-go styles. These include crossbodies, totes, backpacks and weekenders, as well as small cosmetics and accessories that even the Mushroom Kingdom’s most celebrated hero can run away with on his many adventures.
Power-Up Burst is a colorful homage to Mario’s iconic power-up items and classic foes, including Fire Flowers, Super Mushrooms, 1-Up Mushrooms, Super Stars, coins, Goombas and Koopas.
Mario Travel print portrays playful Mushroom Kingdom-inspired travel memorabilia, such as luggage tags, passport stamps and postcards on a bright red background.
Complementing the collection are five additional items, including an authentic pouch shaped like the Game Boy system, a round Piranha Plant pouch, and a Super Mario Bros. cosmetic. All styles will showcase a custom Super Mario coin zipper pull. The LeSportsac X Nintendo collection launches in Japan on July 19 and will be available in other countries, including the United States, this fall.
