Maction Planet x Livio Ramondelli Apparel Launch
Maction Planet is proud to announce the launch of a new apparel collaboration showcasing the art of superstar artist Livio Ramondelli, featuring four different exclusive T-shirt designs.
Most well known for his Transformers work, Livio Ramondelli has been a frequent visitor to Tokyo, and his designs for Maction Planet are all inspired by The World’s Greatest Metropolis.
“I cannot convey my excitement that we are working with Livio. I have been a huge fan of his for a long time and am lucky to own several commissions from him in my comic book art collection” said Mac, Founder of Maction Planet. “Each of Livio’s four designs – ‘Tower of Tokyo‘, ‘Shadow Torii‘, ‘Floating Sakura’ and ‘Electric Pagoda‘ – showcase a different side of Tokyo in a style that has not been seen before. These T-shirts are truly unique. It’s a proud moment for Maction Planet and for me personally that we are launching this collection so fans can enjoy his work and see the artistic diversity that he brings to his projects.”
“I’m thrilled to be working on these shirts with my friend Mac and the good folks at Maction Planet. Tokyo is one of my absolute favorite places I’ve ever visited, and I intend to keep returning to it for the rest of my life. If much of your life has been consuming science fiction, like it has been for me, Tokyo is an absolutely must-see destination. Mac has proved to be an excellent tour guide during my visits there, and it’s great that we can collaborate here. Each shirt was created using a mix of painting and photographic elements from photos I took personally during my visits. With them, I hoped to convey the beauty and atmosphere of Japan.” said Livio.
A special “Mac on Tokyo” interview with Livio accompanies the launch, in which Livio discusses his love of Tokyo and the inspiration behind his exclusive designs. It is available to read here.
All shirts are made from 100% premium ringspun cotton, and are available in Men’s/Unisex and Women’s styles at shop.mactionplanet.com. All shirts are fully branded with exclusive ‘Maction Planet x Livio Ramondelli’ labelling.
This is Maction Planet’s sixth collection and third major collaboration, following the launch of highly popular lines created with Ramen Adventures and Shochu.Pro.
The T-shirts will retail for ¥3,990. As with all Maction Planet Apparel, international delivery is available.
