Porter Robinson has partnered with Harajuku fashion label Galaxxxy – his favorite Japanese streetwear brand – for a limited run of unisex t-shirts, hoodies, and hats inspired by his debut album Worlds. Launching today, the items are available now at the brand’s flagship store in Harajuku and via online order.

Co-designed by Robinson in collaboration with the Japanese brand’s in-house designer the limited edition collection combines long, drapey black streetwear cuts with the more maximalist color schemes that Harajuku fashion is known for. The graphics feature references to his debut album and interactive live show Worlds. (Longtime fans will instantly recognize his signature kaomoji: 【=◈︿◈=】)

Porter explains some of the less obvious design elements: “The Kanji characters say “SEKAI”, which means “World”, like my album title; on the left sleeve, they spell out “Porter” using the Kanji for “many” and “enamored” (which could also mean ‘trance’ as it’s been explained to me).”

Robinson’s debut album Worlds – released exactly one year ago in August of 2014 via Astralwerks – is a deeply personal journey through textural synth-pop. It has been called “gorgeous” (New York Times), “delightful” (Rolling Stone), and “imaginative” (NPR).

The Worlds live show saw it’s Japanese debut earlier this month at Tokyo’s Sonicmania festival and Osaka’s Summersonic fest and returns to the states this September (dates below).

Designed in collaboration with music technologist and artist Laura Escudé aka Alluxe (Kanye, Jay Z, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Drake) with visuals crafted by ILN (Invisible Light Network) and edited by video artist Ghostdad, the Worlds live show is a hyperreal, video-game fueled dream come-to-life with Porter at the helm.
