Building on its journey to “carry on tradition,” Albino & Preto has now partnered with the iconic Japanese anime series, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, for its latest collaborative collection. Celebrating the seminal franchise in the mecha genre, the special range features Heero Yuy’s XXXG-01W Wing Gundam and OZ-13MS Gundam Epyon, also piloted by Yuy and later given to Zechs Merquise.
Albino & Preto Mobile Suit Gundam Wing collection is led by Wing Gundam and Gundam Epyon uniform gi offerings that introduce the iconography of the series and graphic displays of the mobile suits. The kimono dops are constructed with ultra-durable 450 gsm cotton pearl weave with back and left shoulder sleeve patches, along with embroidery on the chest and the A&P Mark logos on the right sleeve. While A&P’s proprietary canvas novo-pants are similarly decorated with Mobile Suit Gundam Wing title card showings on the right leg, mobile suit serial numbers embroidered on the left ankle and an embroidered A&P mark. Each gi style comes complete with a carrying bag marked with the head of Wing Gundam and Gundam Epyon.
The accompanying lightweight, fast drying, built for stretch training rash guard and shorts feature solid blue sleeves and black body sections. Wing Gundam appears on the side panels, along with various logo hits, and a special A&P Mark motif to finish off detailing. The collection also features a selection of graphic tees, which includes the Wing Gundam and Gundam Epyon Logo Tees, A&P Mark Wing Gundam and Gundam Epyon Mark Tees, and Wing Gundam Zero and Gundam Epyon Model Tees.
Finally, rounding up the collection is Albino & Preto’s latest team-up with Nepalese Tibetan carpet and rug weaving pioneers, Noreen Seabrook. The duo has come together on a quality handmade A&P Logo Rug (4 Feet by 4’6” in Length) which features the head of the Wing Gundam with the A&P Mark below.
