The Japanese fashion brand Samanthavega has revealed a new line of luxury Pokémon bags and purses. This is part of a collaboration between the clothing brand and The Pokémon Company. It covers a wide range of accessories, including phone cases, charms, wallets, as well as the aforementioned items, of course.
As you can see, this line of accessories covers some of the best-known faces and icons from the Pokémon franchise. You’ll find Pikachu, Eevee, and even Gengar bags, as well as Snorlax and Poké Ball designs. Customers who spend over 1500 yen will get themselves a special limited edition Pikachu backpack, though this will only be available from the pop-up shop between August 12 and 18.
Some of these items look like little more than standard designs with a Poké ball slapped on. However, the designs featuring actual Pokémon are particularly good. They look like Samanthavega and The Pokémon Company put some real thought into how customers would want them to look. I have to say that the Pikachu backpack also looks pretty great, but there’s no way that I could pull it off.
Currently, this line of items is exclusively available in Japan. However, there’s always a chance that they’ll open up for worldwide shipping if they prove popular enough.
