First collaboration with Rurouni Kenshin!
that it is!
SuperGroupies is delighted to announce our first collaboration with the period action-adventure series Rurouni Kenshin, beloved across many generations of fans!
Kenshin Himura, the legendary wandering samurai, serves as the inspiration for this unique collection of
a kimono cardigan and a crossbody bag.
Both items are filled with Kenshin’s presence and complexity, reflecting the man who slashed his way through
the Bakumatsu to the new Meiji era.
Don’t miss out on these exclusively made-to-order items!
Inspired by Kenshin Himura and his duality, this reversible kimono cardigan reflects his desire to leave his dark past behind him and live as “Kenshin Himura” in the new Meiji era.
One side represents the current Kenshin Himura: using the reddish tones of his kimono as the base color, the symbolic scar on Kenshin’s face is featured on the upper back, boldly dyed next to the right shoulder.
The subtle cuff design is a reference to the moment when the Amakakeru Ryū no Hirameki (Dragon Flight of Heaven)ーthe Hiten Mitsurugi-ryū’s secret technique mastered by Kenshinーreaches its target.
The woven label on one of the sleeves is inspired by a painful memory from Kenshin’s past that will determine his reason to fight, depicting the Battōsai and Tomoe Yukishiro’s swords stuck in the snow.
The other side of the cardigan is reminiscent of the time when Kenshin was known as the deadly swordsman Battōsai Himura. Its deep indigo imitates the color scheme of the kimono that Battōsai used to wear.
Kenshin’s cross-shaped scar is embroidered in a vivid red on the chest, as a mark of his past that will never vanish.
This side also features a woven label sewn on the right sleeve, the arm with which Kenshin wields his katana. The cherry blossom flowers imitate the traditional design of the Japanese card game Hanafuda, and represent the future Kenshin Himura, overcoming his burdensome past.
Designed to be casually worn, this soft, high-quality 2-way kimono cardigan will be a stylish part of your wardrobe across multiple seasons.
Both sides are conveniently fitted with pockets.

The simple yet stylish design of this crossbody bag cleverly connects Kenshin Himura’s past and present. Perfectly suited for a wandering samurai like Kenshin, this bag will leave both of your hands free, at the ready for whatever may come your way.
The pattern at the base of the shoulder strap mimics the handle pattern of Kenshin’s katana.
The belt and the buckle of the front pocket are modeled after his iconic reverse-blade sword and its handguard.
When opened, the flap reveals the first wound left on Kenshin’s face, embroidered in red. Close the flap to overlay the second cut and complete his famous cross-shaped scar, a must-see detail for every Kenshin fan.
The main compartment and front pocket both have original lining designs filled with motifs: Kenshin’s reverse-blade sword crossed with its scabbard to create the symbolic shape of an “X”, and flower patterns inspired by the manga and its covers full of traditional Japanese decorative patterns, a unique combination exclusive to SuperGroupies.
If you look closely, you can spot Kenshin’s trademark “おろ” (Oro) playfully hidden in the design.
Despite its compact appearance, the main compartment has enough room to store a 500ml bottle. The shoulder strap can be attached to either side of the bag, allowing you to comfortably use it with your dominant hand.
Unmistakably inspired by Kenshin, the bag’s color scheme of navy blue and red gives this bag a chic and sophisticated finish.
