This spring/summer longtime Concrete favorite; Walter van Beirendonck collaborated with award-winning London based accessory brand: Chris&Tibor, for the second time. This time creating huge backpacks in the shape of a robot, a tiger and a crocodile, the inspiration of these bags was taken from the idea of having a life-size teddy bear type of buddy you can take with you on all your adventures around the world. All three bags along with special WvB x Chris&Tibor iPad and Macbook sleeves and the rest of Walter’s collection are available now at Concrete.

SOUL OF CHOGOKIN

leave a comment »

Soul of Chogokin (超合金魂 Chōgōkin Damashii), is an amazingly intricate and beautifully designed line of adult collectible toys produced by the Japanese company Bandai featuring exclusively die-cast metal figures.
The line, which began in 1997, focuses almost exclusively on mecha (robots) taken from various 70’s/80’s anime series, although the line has diverged from this on a number of occasions, most notably the release of several mecha from the popular mid-90’s anime phenomenon, Neon Genesis Evangelion. The term Chogokin is Japanese for super-alloy metal, which was an fictitious type of metal used in the Go Nagai’s Mazinger Z comic from 1945. This beautiful line of toys is exclusively available in the Netherlands at both Concrete stores (hit the jump for more detailed pictures of this collection). Read the rest of this entry »
