ARK/8 Launches New Destiny Europa Capsule Collection
ARK/8 is delighted to announce the launch of its latest capsule collection : the Destiny Europa collection.
Designed in partnership with publisher Bungie to celebrate the launch of Destiny 2’s latest expansion, Beyond Light, this collection combines the futuristic style of Destiny with a streetwear touch.
ARK/8’s dream is to bring together fashion and video games into premium and limited collections, in collaboration with iconic artists and video games. Infusing our collaborations with cyber and retrofuturistic culture is what we aim to and is the spirit we wanted to give to this new collection.
Inspired by Jupiter’s icy moon, the main destination for Destiny 2 players in this latest chapter of the game, the Europa collection is composed of jackets, hoodies, sweaters, t-shirts, and accessories that mix both futuristic and streetwear looks, bringing together quality fabrics with oversized cuts on quintessential exploration wear such as bomber jackets, puffer jackets and backpacks.
KATA industrial jackets (available both cropped and in a long, unisex version) connect the traditional Japanese “KATAGINU” outfit with the classic bomber jacket. The Destiny inspiration is also very visible in this product, through the tricorn symbol engraved in the sleeve buckle, the Frozen Frontier symbol from the last chapter of the game, as well as a quilted top section, reminiscent of the game’s Europa armor sets.
The puffer jacket for those expecting to venture out a little further into the elements. Consisting of a three-strap structure tied together by imposing buckles, this all-weather jacket is very similar to the sophisticated equipment carried by the Guardians.
The Europa backpack and shoulder bag boast the same water-repellent fabric as the KATA jacket, while maintaining both a strong look and functional design. Equipped with a special hard-shelled pocket, under the opening, the bag can protect even the most sensitive electronic devices from the elements. It also offers a symmetrical ensemble of straps and buckles engraved with the emblematic Destiny logo for an industrial look, ready for urban excursions or spatial exploration. The shoulder bag also acts as a travel kit when the adjustable strap is removed.
As for a lot of young brands, environmental awareness and responsibility is a concern for ARK/8. Part of the collection is produced in Portugal and composed of organic cotton only. Jackets in the collection are OEKO-TEX® certified and lined with materials fabricated from recycled PET bottles. Both in this collection and as an overall philosophy, ARK/8 drives towards more and more sustainable fabrics and production processes, to then rely on them exclusively.
The ARK/8 x Destiny Europa capsule collection is available now on all the official ARK/8 Stores.
