Skateboarding Heritage Meets Japanese Craft.
Renowned skate label DC Shoes and cult Tokyo-based brand NEEDLES have come together on a range of apparel, accessories and sneakers for the first time.
The expansive collection features ripstop jackets, hoodies, T-shirts, track pants and hats rendered in black, white and NEEDLES’ signature purple hue. Co-branding arrives in the form of a “DC” logo spliced with NEEDLES’ Papillon motif. A stitching pattern decorates several pieces, including two pairs of hybrid sneakers, arriving in black and white colourways, both highlighted with purple accents. The silhouette is based on two OG designs from DC Shoes, utilising the Spectre’s upper and the durable outsole of the Clocker 2. A limited edition skateboard deck, obtainable exclusively through NEEDLES’ distribution channels, rounds out the capsule.
The DC Shoes x NEEDLES collection will be available to shop from August 26th via select retailers and the DC Shoes website.
