The Neon Genesis Evangelion anime has partnered up with designer brand Seveskig for a retail fashion line after the designs first debuted at Rakuten Fashion Week, with some of the designs featuring fan-favorite character Rei Ayanami specifically.
Evangelion‘s information site revealed that fashion brand Seveskig was releasing an official collaboration with the anime. The line, seen below, features 10 items, including the “EVANGELION S/SL Tee Ver.Main visual” graphic t-shirts, which come in two designs, in both black and white, and retail for $135 and $101, respectively. An AT Field-inspired graphic t-shirt (black/white) also costs $101, while a Rei Ayanami-inspired long-sleeve t-shirt (black/white) costs $148. The “EVANGELION ATField Knit Cardigan” will set customers back $310, and the priciest item of the collection — the “EVANGELION Disrupted ATField Duster Coat” — costs around $1011. The collection was designed by NORI. Size information and worldwide shipping options are available on the official Seveskig site.
Evangelion’s Rei Ayanami Released as a Motorsports Model
A new Evangelion collectible figure showcases the iconic Rei Ayanami as a motorsports model, homaging the franchise’s real-life racing team.
The collaboration was made available for retail on Jan. 9, 2024, several months after the items were presented at Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO 2024 S/S, also pictured above. The fashion show took place from Aug. 28 to Sep. 2, 2023, meaning prospective buyers can check out the clothes in actual use. The announcement also quickly follows the Rei Ayanami Pit Walk figure, a motorsport model-inspired take on the notably reserved character.
It’s little surprise that almost 30 years on from Hideaki Anno’s Neon Genesis Evangelion anime debut, the series continues to be immortalized through new collaborations and projects. The series was recently featured alongside some of the most popular anime of the new generation at last year’s Christmas Drone Show and continues to expand on its lore through the Rebuild of Evangelion series, which has grossed over $200 million dollars worldwide.
