There’s a new collab between local label Beyond The Vines (BTV) and everyone’s favourite childhood brand Pokémon – it’s yet another nostalgic throwback to fonder days. Come tomorrow (February 17), you can finally put your hands on this special Pokémon-themed collection, which includes more than 15 items featuring six Pokémons: Eevee, Jigglypuff, Mew, Chrizard, Gengar, and the ever-popular Pikachu. Since the collection ranges from unisex tees to skate decks, you can be sure that there’ll be something to tempt you. What you might be most keen on though, is the iconic BTV Dumpling Bag.
Known for its dumpling-like shape and lightweight material, this nylon crossbody bag has proven to be a hit over the years. Now, get your hands on a Pikachu, Jigglypuff, or Eevee XS Dumpling Bag for $89. These respectively come in black and yellow, blush and teal, or brown and cream colourways and all have Pokémon imprints woven on the product labels. Notice that Pokédex stats are included with the number, height, and weight of each Pokémon – talk about having an eye for detail.
There is also a Pikachu Micro Dumpling Bag ($79) that’s embossed with a reflective Pikachu on the front pocket. Beyond these dumpling-like bags, shoppers can also pick up boxy-fit unisex tees, glass cups, caps, camp chairs, and canvas carryall bags. There’ll also be two skate decks featuring Pikachu and Charizard designs, on maple wood boards with matte black finish.
Beyond The Vines is all about creating bold but simple designs, and you’ll see this ethos reflected in many of these Pokémon-imprinted designs. Head down to the flagship store in Ion Orchard to shop this new collection – you’ll see that they’ve also decked out the store with a new lightbox filled with Poké balls and studded rubber flooring.
