Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) official clothing line has been in the works since February 2022, when John Richmond joined the SHIB Army. Richmond is an English fashion designer, while the fashion brand of the same name is headquartered in Italy. SHIB fashion has already rocked Milan, the heart of the international fashion industry.
Besides, the clothing brand for the SHIB Army has been featured in Shanghai Fashion Week and has already popped in Web 3.0. The collection titled Legends Live Forever takes inspiration from Punk, Grunge, Disco, Urban and Rock music, combining timeless aesthetics with the futuristic approach of the SHIB metaverse.
The fashion designer recently hosted the Casa Richmond Halloween Party, with the veteran House DJ Tony Humphries spinning Pioneer turntables. A glimpse of the party has revealed John Richmond X SHIB models wearing trademark flower-patterned, shiny black dresses with retro sunglasses.
SHIB Clothing Line: A Love Affair Between Art and Fashion
The renowned fashion designer took to Twitter to explain his vision for SHIB clothing. According to the post, Richmond “had always been curious about shape and form, intrigued by social, historical and cultural references.” Sparking a discussion on how art influences fashion, many members of the SHIB army joined in to ask when the SHIB x John Richmond “Legends Live Forever” collection will drop.
Though the collection has yet to be released, the SHIB x John Richmond collaboration has already made its mark on several popular fashion magazines. In September, WWD Magazine shared a sneak peek into Richmond’s dive into Web 3.0, with Sci-Fi styled shiny figures dancing around in what’s supposed to be the upcoming SHIB: The Metaverse.
Prior to the project’s release, Shibarium, the Layer-2 solution will first have to launch. Hence, Shibarium will lay the foundation for the Web 3.0 project of the SHIB Ecosystem.
Meanwhile, Richmond’s timeless approach is displayed in this week’s Modern Weekly, the top Chinese fashion magazine. The Graceful Her, the SHIB collection piece which was also featured in Shanghai Fashion Week a month ago, is the successor to the SHIB Scarlet Woman. The exquisite piece received praise from the SHIB Army on Twitter for its elegant aesthetic.
