Kinetics x Columbia x Radio Eva – De Cruze Summit Jacket

By - September 9th, 2013

Tokyo-based select shop and label Kinetics must be a fan of the cult animation series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, as their latest project borrows design elements from the renowned Japanese anime. For this project, reached out to their frequent collaborators, Columbia and Radio Eva, an official online shop of merchandise, to produce a redesign of the De Cruze Summit jacket. Its color scheme is based on the plugsuit 09 worn by Rei in the animation, with the majority of the exterior constructed in black tone, while hints of red, green, and grey detail accents on the jacket. This outerwear uses Omni-Heat and Omni-Shield technologies on the shell, helping to retain heat and protect the wearer from water and wind. Pre-order this item from Kinetics online shop or wait for the official launch, scheduled for around mid-October.
