Daidō Moriyama, a renowned Japanese photographer, has teamed up with the streetwear imprint WACKO MARIA to deliver a capsule coinciding with the anniversaries of a select few of his photograph collections – Nippon Theater Photo Book, Sayyo Picture and Yashi.

Known for his candidly gritty, black-and-white and often unfocused work, Moriyama found prominence as an influential provocateur and contributor to the emergence of street-photography in ’60s-’70s, inspiring the likes of Keizo Kitajima. The clothing explores Daidō’s motifs by collaging and emblazoning his images, from the aforementioned collections, on black or white garments ranging from T-shirts and Hawaiian shirts to sweatshirts and coach jackets.

Starting at ¥11,000 JPY (approximately $97 USD), the pieces will be available January 1 in-store via Paradise Tokyo and WACKO MARIA as well as online through the label’s website. For more fashion news, check out the release of Supreme’s sled.
