Luxury Japanese brand Gelato Pique has just announced a cozy new line of loungewear in collaboration with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and yes, we’re stoked.
Posted by Nintendo, the collection includes an adorable pair of Tom Nook slippers, various hoodies, fuzzy shorts, bags, and more. With millions of fans snuggling up with their Nintendo Switch during quarantine, this cozy collab is bound to make a splash.
Here’s a sneak peak of the items:
With all the excitement surrounding Animal Crossing: New Horizons this year, these items come just in time for fans to fill their carts in preparation for Christmas, and it gets even better for pattern-lovers. On the official website for Gelato Pique, there’s a free list of patterns for download, so if you’re looking to spice up your desktop or add a sweet cherry background to your smartphone, the opportunity is nigh.
Though the collaboration is new, Gelato Pique is no stranger to mascot clothing. A quick trip will show you plenty of designs for cute sleepwear (including Snoopy socks)!
Pre-orders for the Animal Crossing X Gelato Pique collection are set to go live in Japan on November 18 with a brand book by Takarajimasha releasing shortly after on December 22, 2020. The collection is expected to be sold at the Nintendo store in Tokyo at a later date.
