The F.C Real Bristol x WTAPS collaboration merges Japanese streetwear with the fictional football team.
As we now come into another new year, it already looks like 2018 is going to be another big year of streetwear collaborations with the latest news of a F.C. Real Bristol x WTAPS collection. Just a little recap for those of you who may not know, F.C. Real Bristol comes from the creative brains behind Sophnet, and acts as an imaginary football team of mannequins, alongside some pretty cool football training kit geared up for the streets. WTAPS on the other hand was launched by fellow Japanese designer, Tetsu Nishiyama, back in the 90’s and has become one of the most renowned brands on the Japanese streetwear map over the last 20 years thanks to collaborations with the likes of Supreme, Vans & Stüssy to name a few.
To start 2018 with a bang, F.C. Real Bristol have teamed up with WTAPS on a capsule collection featuring a range of football inspired training apparel. The collection includes the F.C Real Bristol x WTAPS Practice Jacket which is available with a leopard print and zebra print pattern to the front alongside the Practice Pants both featuring bold graphics. Also included in the drop is a gym bag and a rubber duck because we all need to unwind after a hard days training session, don’t we?
The F.C Real Bristol x WTAPS will only be available as part of a very exclusive raffle draw from SOPH stores in Japan from Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
