Steve Aoki teams with Toei Animation on new One Piece collection

DJ Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and Toei Animation have joined forces on a new One Piece collaboration.

The new Dim Mak x One Piece collection features an array of wearable merchandise and hard goods – including tees and hoodies, skate decks, socks and trucker hats – showcasing the storyline and official artwork from One Piece’s Land of Wano Arc.

The limited edition line-up officially launched at the recent Anime Expo in Los Angeles (1-4 July).

Produced by Toei Animation, One Piece is based on the top selling manga title of all time by creator Eiichiro Oda. It follows the adventures of aspiring future King of the Pirates, Monkey D Luffy and his Straw Hat crew on their quest to find ‘One Piece’, the legendary treasure of the former King of the Pirates, Gol D. Roger.

“I am a huge fan of Luffy,” commented Steve. “I am inspired by his selfless determination to help people, his mischievous misadventures, his innocent outlook on obstacles, and how he doesn’t let the world define who he is despite the 1.5 billion berry bounty his adversaries are after. I love how passionately he defends and relies on his friends and how he can convert enemies into allies through his kindness.”

The 15th film in the One Piece franchise – One Piece Film Red – was also celebrated during Anime Expo. It is due to premiere on 6 August in Japan, before releasing in the US and Canada in the autumn.
