Cool arcade badges

November 2, 2008

When it comes to fashionable wear and design that involves something arcade related, usually you get something based upon iconic arcade characters like Space Invaders or Pac-Man. But that’s not the only place where arcades can inspire something wearable, as is evidenced with these handmade badges based upon more classic arcade controls. Of course I have never seen an arcade button say Punch, Kick or Fire on itbut I understand why they made them this way. I wouldn’t mind getting a few to throw on my uniforms for my arcade. 😉

I’m not a fashion expert so when I first read about this news I had to look up what LaForet Harajuku was. According to this page: “ Since its phenomenally successful debut in 1978, Laforet Harajuku shopping center and museum has established itself as the preeminent source of new fashion and culture in Tokyo’s most fashionable district.” They also help young designers get started. So with that out of the way, Taito has teamed up with LaForet to launch a line of Space Invaders inspired clothing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the aforementioned game. The line-up includes T-shirts, hats, hoodies, shoes and purses.

To check them out, hit the post break below, where you also get to see a Vewlix cabinet running Space Invaders! I wasn’t expecting to see one of these!
