Many fans have been waiting for the official reveal of this hyped collaboration. The Japanese fashion brand, AAPE BY A BATHING APE® , will release an apparel collection alongside the new ‘True Damage Yasuo Prestige Edition’ skin. Set your alarm for September 25th!
This collaboration marks a significant partnership between the gaming and streetwear fashion industry. Both companies shared that they hope they achieved the right mix of the champion with the ‘hypebeast’ aesthetic it can boast. The duo encountered a challenge in creating a design that shows off the AAPE-look while being playable and flexible during gameplay.
“From the skin to the individual pieces of clothing, every element of this partnership felt organic and we really think players will appreciate another way to express their fandom in the form of streetwear.” Riot Games’ Christian Bailey, Director of Consumer Products mentions.
League has posted on a preview of the champion in action on their Twitter account on September 1st, 2020.
Though some fans have mixed comments about the design on Yasuo and its PBE leak days ago, many still look forward to the actual merchandise and apparel that will be available to them in-store and online during the release. Some fans even call for a possible Worlds collaboration… thoughts?
For 100 Prestige Points, players will be able to use the skin starting on September 25 through 2020. Fans can expect an update on the apparel collection on the official AAPE website on September 18. We’re looking forward to seeing this incredible DJ on the Rift!
