GCDS collaborates with One Piece, the Japanese manga series created by Eiichiro Oda in 1997

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I must admit that I’ve always had a passion for manga and this season GCDS Creative Director Giuliano Calza developed a colourful collection inspired by the underwater designs of One Piece.

The One Piece graphics decorate bowling shirts, cargo sweatshirts and jersey sweaters as well as maxi t-shirts and bodysuits. The famous Doflamingo appears on an oversized pink cardigan with all-over crystal stones, while on crop sweatshirts characters such as Shirahoshi pop up. Among the selection, also a pajama set and palazzo trousers with an all-over print, as well as a handmade crochet top, skirt and black dress recalling the famous skull.

Among the accessories, a printed hat starring Shirahoshi with a wide brim and a drawstring, logo printed socks and a shawl featuring the One Piece island.

The capsule collection is now available in the GCDS stores, on www.gcds.com and in selected international retailers.
