The Rōnin Fall/Winter 2018 collection was recently launched by the New York brand and takes inspiration from Barbara Krugar and Katsuhiro Otomo's Japanese anime Akira. The samurai influence is implemented on garments such as sweaters, graphic t-shirts, hoodies, coach jackets, and long sleeve shirts. The color palette that the collection uses remains fairly neutral, ranging from a military green, navy blue, gray, and maroon.

The Rōnin Fall/Winter 2018 capsule does not stray far from the usual streetwear aesthetics of classic silhouettes and captivating graphics. A standout piece from the series include the "'Untitled' statement t-shirt which has an Akira graphic imprinted on it. Some other notable items are the t-shirts influenced by 'afro-samurai' and 'Empty Seven.' The hoodies sport a three-toned color blocking detail and embroidery is added to exude a more premium look. The collection will be released February 2nd on the brand's website.
