Toho International, the Japanese studio’s U.S.-based subsidiary, along with HUF Worldwide, the Los Angeles-based footwear and apparel brand, launched a limited-edition capsule collection inspired by Japanese cinema's "King of the Monsters,” Godzilla.  

Available exclusively at Urban Outfitters and HUF retail and ecommerce stores, the apparel and skateboard collection features artwork by contemporary graphic artist Kosuke Kawamura.  

“The Godzilla brand continues to thrive and resonate within the cultural landscape, especially within the skateboard community,” says Lora Cohn, managing director, international licensing, Toho International. “We’re so excited to partner with HUF, Urban Outfitters, and the incredible artist Kosuke Kawamura to bring the monster-sized influence of Godzilla to this stylish collection.” 

Included in the collection are five singular designs including long and short sleeve cotton tees, a pullover hoodie and a skate deck, each including artwork and designs by Kawamura. The artwork seen throughout the line pays homage to “Godzilla in Hollywood” with a collage design in Kawamura’s signature artistic style.  

“It was an honor to work with both Toho International and HUF Worldwide on this collection,” says Kawamura. “The unique collage design seen on each item was inspired by Godzilla being a global pop-culture icon, and I hope fans enjoy this new perspective brought to this well-known classic character.”
