Shop the Collection
We’d like to spotlight the following selection of items from our Dark Souls collection. Hopefully this will help any undecided souls who are still hesitating in their pre-order decisions!
Praise the Sun! Solaire of
Astora-inspired items, filled with the brilliance of our Sun
Made for fans, these items were born from our passion and attention to detail! We left no room for compromise in the creation process.
The first item we are proud to show you is the grossly incandescent Solaire of Astora model crossbody bag!
This unique product is the result of modern styling combined with great functionality, a perfect choice for daily life.
Putting the bag directly on your chest will naturally imitate Solaire’s Armor of the Sun, proudly sporting the holy symbol of the Sun on his chest.
Any camera pointing at you will make you feel the irresistible urge to perform the iconic “Praise the Sun” pose, hah hah hah!
Both the bag and the wallet feature the inscription, “I am Solaire of Astora, an adherent of the Lord of Sunlight”, a handwritten design made by SuperGroupies staff!
At first, we were planning to use a uniform font, but it gave the item a stiff atmosphere which didn’t really match with Solaire’s personality… We tried several versions of it, but in the end, writing it by hand was the most appropriate solution: it was the only way to properly express the right amount of naivety through handwriting.
This idea was unanimously considered as the right representation of Solaire’s uniqueness, and eventually adopted for use!
An impressive finish for
this dark and mysterious watch!
From this gothic-like design emanates the aura of Artorias the Abysswalker.
The surface of the main dial features an uneven pattern which provides a striking sense of depth. This impression is accentuated by the visible internal mechanisms of the watch where the mesmerizing view of the moving gears inside can be enjoyed!
The bezel itself is also subtly decorated with a unique pattern for an antique finish. The crack at 3 o’clock on the dial embodies the extensive battle experience of the warrior Artorias, a must-see point!
The 42mm case diameter makes this stylish watch impossible to ignore.
Before being shipped, each item is meticulously inspected and serviced by manufacturing specialists in Japan so you can use them with peace of mind.
*Please contact the manufacturer in case of watch repair, defective item, battery replacement, or strap size adjustment.
The one and only!
A Leather Shirt Jacket inspired
by Oscar, Knight of Astora
This top-quality Jacket is made from carefully selected sheep leather and includes a hidden design on the lining inside.
This jacket might look intimidating in appearance but is actually very lightweight and comfortable thanks to its soft texture and sophisticated finish. Enjoy its fitted silhouette and the classy impression emanating from its design!
The bonfire motif on the lining is made with reflective printing, a technique using minuscule glass particles mixed with a special ink that absorbs and reflects light. Have fun with this unique feature through the flash of your smartphone or digital camera for various results!
5’9” and slightly broad, wearing an S size jacket.
Since it’s a tight-fit jacket, going up 2 sizes to an L size would be the perfect fit for him.
