We're less than a week away to the first episode of the final season of Game of Thrones. While we're waiting for winter (and the horrors that that will bring) to finally hit Westeros, John Varvatos had been busy working on a capsule collection of Game of Thrones-inspired ready-to-wear. The American designer created an 11-piece collection ranging from graphic T-shirts to a leather jacket, each designed to look well-worn, like they were used during the 'Battle of Winterfell'.
The Winterfell leather jacket by John Varvatos.
The Game of Thrones x John Varvatos leather jacket is the pièce de résistance of the collaboration. Dubbed the Winterfell leather jacket, it's made out of sheepskin and features a hand-burnished and distressed effect. The fully lined piece is also branded with an illustration of the Iron Throne (just so you'd know that this is a Game of Thrones-inspired jacket).
If you're thinking of getting this in time to sit undisturbed for the premiere of season eight, you might need the help of a concierge service as it unfortunately can't be shipped directly to Malaysia. Add the approximately RM11,130 price tag to the shipping cost, it could be somewhat undesirable to a casual fan of the show.
But if you're still bent on marking this historic pop culture moment with something tangible, here are some other ways to show your fanaticism with RM11,130.
13 Pairs of Adidas x The Game of Thrones Ultraboost Sneakers by Adidas (approx. RM850 each) Why decide between the six different variations (each inspired by a house or a character from the series), when you can get around 13 pairs? We're not sure about White Walkers, but running in a pair might help save you from a potential zombie apocalypse.
39 Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay (approx. RM280 each)
Because this is the closest you'd ever get to being in the same room as the Khaleesi or Cersei Lannister; assuming you can find a willing female partner to assume said role.
48 Bottles of White Walker by Johnnie Walker (approx. RM228 each)
More than enough to last you for all six episodes. Take a shot for every (minor and major) character death, sex scene, and snarky remark by Tyrion Lannister.
73 Pairs of Havaianas x Game of Thrones flip-flops by Havaianas (approx RM150 each)
Winter might be coming but it's hardly even autumn here.
??? Pieces of Game of Thrones-Themed Oreos
We're not entirely sure how many cookies or if they're even going to be available in Malaysia, but with RM11,130, we're certain you'd get enough to recreate the opening scene of Game of Thrones with Oreos.
