UK brand DBD have released a brand new print entitled ‘Sleeping Samurais Lose Their Eyes’, based on text and imagery inspired by Japanese martial arts, in particular, the Samurai and an ancient text known as The Book Of Five Rings.
The imagery is based around the samurai belief of having a high level or awareness at all times, and the consequences of switching off even for just a moment. As always, DBD have interpreted the traditional imagery and given it a bit of a sinister twist. The white print is available on black T-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts, as well as girls slim fit T-shirts. The piece is finished off with text, inspired by the original Book Of Five Rings, printed on the inside.
The ‘Sleeping Samurai’ is available now, online from the DBD Store. Look out for more in the Book Of Five Rings inspired series soon.
