Things are looking dicey this spring 2021! For their first-ever collaboration with comic book giant Marvel, UK-born streetwear collective Brain Dead has released a new capsule collection featuring everyone’s favorite clawed X-men, Wolverine. Featuring imagery and styles from both the comics and the movies, it’s a visual feast of a tribute to one of the comics’ most iconic heroes.
Classic Americana Reimagined and Modernized
Though Brain Dead was born and is based in the UK, the design collective consists of creatives from all over the world. Including, of course, the US. And it’s clear from this latest capsule line that only American designers achieved touching up various codes of classic Americana to fit streetwear standards. From logo-ed tees to leather jackets, this collection looks 100% American.
Most notably, the leather jackets here, clearly high-quality, pays tribute to Hugh Jackman’s legendary run as Wolverine on the silver screen. Despite his gruff look of hardened jeans and tattered tank-tops, his leather jackets always stole the show when it came to superhero style. And these new pieces from Brain Dead look exactly the same!
Giving You That Classic Marvel Fix
As many would expect, the capsule collection also consists of pieces any Marvel fanboy would love to buy! Namely the logo-ed pieces that feature the comic book Wolverine in his animated glory. From sweaters and hoodies to plain old tees, they’re the best gear any comic book geek will want to have in his wardrobe.
The Brain Dead x Marvel ‘Wolverine’ capsule collection is out now on the brand’s online store. Check out all the pieces and see which ones you’d like. Afterward, share your thoughts and reactions with us in our comments section!
