Be@rbrick collectors alert! I’ve got some news on the XLARGE x D*Face x Medicom Be@rbrick collaboration. The limited-edition designer toy was launched on Akimbo online and you can order it to be delivered straight to your doorstep.
What makes this collab special you ask? It’s proof of how these three brands—Be@rbrick, XLARGE, and D*Face— are institutions for those kept on the pulse of street culture.
Be@rbrick by Japanese toy manufacturer Medicom is known for its collectible bears molded from different types of materials and colors. The designs of the Be@rbricks are unique; the company invites select contemporary artists and designers to contribute to the resulting limited-edition Be@rbrick.
On the other hand, LA streetwear brand XLARGE is described by streetwear enthusiasts as the “true, OG streetwear brand,” owing to its early origins in the scheme of all things street.
D*Face is an English multimedia street artist, also known as Dean Stockton. He is a huge force in street art with his distinct skater-graffiti style.
The XLARGE x D*Face x Medicom Be@rbrick design was a star at DesignCon 2019, the annual street art and design conference held in Anaheim.
Akimbo is offering the Be@rbrick collectibles in the 1000% Charcoal Color, 400% Charcoal Color, and 400% Black Color.
For every purchase of the XLARGE x D*Face x Medicom Be@rbrick, twenty percent of the proceeds will go to the customer’s preferred beneficiary among the following: UP Medical Foundation (to help fund production of test kits), Caritas Manila (to help feed families at risk), PGH Medical Foundation (help provide needs of the frontliners).
You just need to log on to www.akimbo.ph, purchase the Be@rbrick, then select their desired beneficiary. The Be@rbrick will be delivered directly to the customer within a few days.
Akimbo.ph has also created a section on the website aimed at providing information for those who to directly help the victims of the COVID-19 spread in the Philippines.
