Industry Impact OF One Piece x Vans

1. fashion retail – the One Piece x Vans collaboration and the trend towards anime-inspired fashion collaborations signals a potential growth area for the fashion retail business.
2. anime and manga merchandise – Businesses offering anime and manga merchandise may find opportunities in the nostalgia-driven demand for well-known characters and franchises.

Like the One Piece line itself, the rumoured Vans Authentics have a bit of a youthful edge to them, with their full-body Straw Hat Pirates logo, jute-style uppers and rope laces all subtly paying homage to the pirate culture of the King of Thieves.
The One Piece is also largely associated with clothing giants like GCDS, Kappa and UNIQLO, which is probably fine with fans: they’re not looking for anything terribly cutting edge, just new ways to represent what they love, and these Vans will do a fine job of it.
