High end fashion reaches the gaming world as Balenciaga launches a line of PlayStation apparel, ideal for those who put style before savings. The luxury Spanish fashion house is releasing a t-shirt range and a hoodie emblazoned with PlayStation 5 branding.
The two tees are available in black or red colourways and are priced at AUD$935 each, while the black hoodie is priced at AUD$1,290. However, the hoodie appears to have already sold out online. There’s currently no word on whether the hoodie will be restocked any time soon or if ever again.
For comparison, the PlayStation 5 is priced at AUD$750. So the new Balenciaga line will be reserved for the most hardcore gamers out there.
The Balenciaga PlayStation T-shirt is described as a jersey shirt with a boxy fit. It’s a classic crewneck design with ribbed finishings at the collar and a mid-thigh length. There’s PlayStation 5 branding on the front, the back and on the sleeves. In addition, the shirt features the date of November 2020 – the launch month of Sony’s latest gaming console.
The PlayStation fitted hoodie is crafted from organic, medium fleece and is designed for a small fit. There’s a hood and drawstring, gathered cuffs and a kangaroo pocket at the front. The PlayStation branding is more prominent on the hoodie, with additional graphics on the sleeves. Otherwise, the front and back designs are the same as the t-shirt.
Both tees and hoodie are made in Portugal. You can find out more about the PlayStation fashion over on Balenciaga’s Australian web page linked below. Stock is limited, so you might want to get in quick!
