Made In Korea: 8Seconds X Nongshim’s Shrimp Cracker Collaboration
Things are getting a little fishy at 8Seconds stores.
The Korean ready-to-wear brand, most popular internationally for their partnership with G-Dragon, is back with another exciting collaboration. This time, the label has teamed up with food brand Nongshim (of Shin Ramyun fame) to celebrate the 46th anniversary of Nongshim Shrimp Crackers.
The oblong chip is a snack beloved by Koreans of all generations, and through the new collaboration, 8Seconds and Nongshim are giving shrimp chip fans an opportunity to boast their love for them by rocking some limited edition Shrimp Crackers apparel.
Here are some of our favorite items from the new collaboration!
Perhaps the top must-have items of the 8Seconds X Nongshim line are actually the socks. The embroidered shrimp and beer accents are a cute nod to Shrimp Crackers’ popularity as a drinking snack. And starting at 3,990 KRW (roughly $3.50 USD) a pair, they are a serious steal!
The nautical striped tees are as fun as they are flattering! Particularly, the women’s striped tee’s feminine boat-neck cut and three-quarter sleeves make it the perfect item for the transitioning seasons. The Shrimp Cracker logo embroidery is also giving us heavy (or should we say ‘fishy’?) Ralph Lauren vibes.
For the more fashion forward, the striped linen items are guaranteed to turn heads no matter where you wear them! These unisex styles are suitable for both men and women. 8Seconds even suggests purchasing the sky blue items together as a pajama set.
The 8Seconds X Nongshim collection also includes hairbands, totebags, snapbacks, dresses, and even shrimp chip-shaped plushes!
There are only a limited supply of each item available, so make sure you head over to the 8Seconds official online store to pick out your own Shrimp Cracker fashion before it’s too late!
