As Mastermind Japan’s 4th season starts, they continue the withstanding tradition of the collaboration between themselves, Fragment Design and Base Control. This will be the fourth time these company’s have worked together. The new collaboration is expected to release a t-shirt, and underwear. Both in the black MMJ fashion.
With strong roots in workwear, Carhartt transcended workwear to become a mainstay in the Asian and European street fashion markets. They recently designed a small capsule of items exclusively for sale through Japanese magazine Samurai. The items include a Thermo hoodie as well as logo beanies. The pieces are currently available through Samurai’s online store.
Mastermind Japan has created several interesting items for their 2008 Spring/Summer “Heartful” collection including this Mastermind Japan x OTS leather sneakers. These hi-top shoes come in a simple black/white colorway and feature the Mastermind Japan badging on the back heel of the shoe. There is also another Mastermind Japan touch which is the zipper on the side panel of the sneakers.
